Iran announced on Wednesday that Britain would contribute in upgrading the Arak nuclear reactor after the United States withdrew from the nuclear deal. “Experts from Britain will replace their US counterparts during reactor redesign process,” said Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
