The United States has granted temporary waivers allowing limited nuclear cooperation with Iran. Specifically, the waivers allow for the continuation of projects at the Arak, Bushehr, and Fordow nuclear facilities that impede Iran’s ability to reconstitute its weapon program. The waivers are temporary and may be revoked or modified at any time. They permit work at these facilities despite the re-imposition of U.S. sanctions on Iran's Atomic Energy Organization and 23 of its subsidiaries, as a result of which most nuclear cooperation with Iran is sanctionable.
