Iran has announced a tenfold increase in the production of enriched uranium. After that, it has moved several steps backward from the nuclear deal that was made between Iran and the U.S. in 2015.
The head of Iran’s atomic energy organization, Ali Akbar Salehi has informed that Iran has also prepared two new advanced centrifuges. The testing of one of them is in progress.
While giving remarks to reporters on Nantes facilities in central Iran, Salehi has informed that the production of enriched uranium has reached up to 5Kg per day.
This was compared from the level of 450g two months ago when it had denied several promises made in the nuclear treaty made in 2015 under historic signs.
Tehran had decided to delay few promises made in the deal in May one year after U.S. President Donald Trump had withdrawn from the deal and had imposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic.
Salehi also revealed that engineers were functioning on a Prototype named IR-9 as well. This prototype gives 50 times faster results than the IR-1s (first generation). Salehi said that Iran was now functioning at IR-6 having modern centrifuges. It is a violation of the deal.
