Russia's state-owned TVEL Company has suspended work at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, claiming that Iran's decision to resume uranium enrichment has made it impossible to continue producing radioactive isotopes for medical purposes at the facility. The announcement comes in the wake of the U.S. decision to cancel a sanctions waiver that had previously allowed foreign companies to conduct work at Fordow.
