Salehi: Iran to start 5% uranium enrichment at Fordow facility
Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization Ali Akbar Salehi said that Iran will start 5% uranium enrichment at the Fordow facility on November 6.
"We will begin enriching uranium to five percent at the Fordow facility tomorrow," ISNA cited him as saying.
According to Salehi, before making a nuclear deal, Iran used to enrich uranium to 20% in Fordow. "Today, we have enough 20% enriched uranium," he added.
Salehi also pointed out that gas would be injected into uranium enrichment centrifuges in the presence of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) officials.
