Iran still refusing to suspend uranium enrichmentadmin
Iran is continuing to defy UN demands that it suspend uranium enrichment, the UN atomic watchdog said on Monday.
“Contrary to the decisions of the (UN) Security Council, Iran has not suspended its enrichment related activities,” the International Atomic Energy Agency wrote in its latest report on Tehran’s disputed nuclear drive.
In all, Iran was operating about 3,500 uranium-enriching centrifuges at its main nuclear site in Natanz, the report said.
The Islamic republic has told the IAEA it hopes to have some 6,000 centrifuges up and running by the end of the summer, a target which agency experts have no reason to doubt, a senior official close to the Vienna-based watchdog said.
