The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) says samples taken from the Natanz nuclear facility show Iran has enriched uranium to up to 63 percent, and that the purity level is “consistent with the fluctuations” announced by the Islamic Republic.
Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee Mojtaba Zonnour told MNA that Iran has stepped up its uranium enrichment, warning that time is running out for the US and Europeans.
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said Sunday that Iran enriched 24 tons of uranium after signing JCPOA, noted a member of Parliament.
Government spokesperson Ali Rabiei said Iran’s move to increase the level of uranium enrichment over the 3.67% limit is according to the country’s economic needs and is of a ‘deeply peaceful’ nature.
Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanovhas described Iran's move in increasing enriched uranium stockpile "as a result of US decision to sanction removal of low enriched uranium from Iran."
Iran's permanent envoy to Vienna-based international organizations, Kazem Gharibabadi says that if Europe is interested in the fate of the JCPOA, it needs to take serious steps to preserve the pact.
“This will not be in favor of Europeans if they do not pay attention to the set 60-day deadline by Iran,” Senior Iranian Lawmaker and a member of Parliament National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Wednesday.
