The relocation of a significant part of centrifuge machines to a safer location was due to a terrorist attack against Iran's Karaj nuclear site, the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said.
Iran has installed new cascades of advanced centrifuge machines at two uranium enrichment sites in line with its measures to reduce its commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal, Tehran’s envoy in Vienna said.
The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) said a new and more advanced shed will be built at Natanz nuclear facility in central Iran to replace the one damaged in an incident that happened Thursday.
Iran is making final preparations for injecting gas into centrifuges at Fordow enrichment facility as part of a fourth step in suspending its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal in reciprocation for Washington’s pullout and Europe’s failure to meet its end of the bargain.
Iran has installed 15 types of advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium at its Natanz Enrichment Facilities. This came as Iran marked the 40th anniversary of the US embassy takeover, when Iranian students stormed the US embassy in Tehran back in 1980.
Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Salehi said here on Wednesday after deactivation of Iranian centrifuges 6,000 will remain active, adding that the other side recently took a long stride in implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
