Iran defies international community to increase production of “enriched uranium”


Beegsonews- Tehran has begun operating sophisticated centrifuges that will increase its stockpile of enriched uranium, a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said on Saturday.

He spoke to a spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization on the measures of the new phase of reducing the commitments made by Iran to the international community on its nuclear activities.

Kamalundi said that the organization has begun operating 20 machines “IR4” and 20 other devices “type” IR6 “, while the nuclear agreement signed in 2015, allows Iran at this stage to produce enriched uranium only centrifuges of the first generation (IR1 ).

“Iran has lifted any restrictions on research and development that the nuclear deal had stipulated,” the official said, adding that in the next two months, 164 I4 centrifuges would be ready for operation.

He stressed that his country “has the ability to enrich uranium by more than 20 percent.”

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) announced Friday evening that its director general will meet senior Iranian officials in Iran over the weekend.
“Iran has no plans to limit the IAEA’s access to its nuclear sites,” the official said.

He pointed out that Iran’s decision to reduce its nuclear obligations “can be reversed if the other parties fulfill their commitments.”

The Vienna agreement on Iran’s nuclear program was signed in 2015 between Iran and the Group of Six (the United States, China, Russia, Britain, France and Germany), and provided for the lifting of some of the sanctions aimed at Tehran in return for its commitment not to possess a nuclear weapon.

In response to the U.S. withdrawal from the 2018 agreement and the inability of the Europeans to help it bypass sanctions, Tehran in July began to fail to meet some of its obligations under the deal and threatens to shirk other commitments.
