Iran Enriches Uranium Over 20%


A recent IAEA inspection of Iran’s Fordo nuclear facility has detected traces of uranium being enriched to 20-30 per cent, a diplomatic source told the media today.

Iran previously insisted that the facility never enriched uranium above 20 per cent.

The source also said the concentration of discovered uranium wasn’t enough to build a nuclear bomb.

According to a diplomatic source in Vienna where the IAEA is located, the find may be explained by wrong adjustments of the centrifuges that produce enriched uranium.

Earlier, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani stated that country is not going over the 20% enrichment threshold and reminded that IAEA cameras are monitoring all activity at Iranian nuclear sites 24 hours a day.
