Iran exceeds uranium enrichment level of 4.5%
Iran has exceeded the uranium enrichment level of 4.5% today, Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said.
"Today, Iran has exceeded the uranium [enrichment level] of 4.5%. The purity level is enough to meet the country’s needs for fuel for our power stations," IRNA cited him as saying.
Kamalvandi added that the "International Atomic Energy Agency will analyze the selected samples and announce the exact uranium enrichment level."
Earlier on Monday, the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization spokesman said that Tehran had increased its uranium enrichment above the 3.67% limit set by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program.
