Iran to install 1000 centrifuges at Natanz nuclear facility
Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi has said that 1000 IR2M centrifuges will be installed at Natanz nuclear facility within three months.
Speaking on the sidelines of Parliament Speaker Ghalibaf’s visit to Fordow plant, Kamalvandi said that the AEOI is making great achievements in line with the guidelines of the Leader of the Islamic Republic, stressing that Iran is enriching uranium using 100% indigenous technology.
He also said that 1000 IR2M centrifuges will be installed at Natanz nuclear facility within three months, the Mehr News agency reported.
The Iranian parliament passed a bill, dubbed the Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions in early last December, giving Washington two months to lift the sanctions. It became a law after the Guardian Council approved the parliament’s decision.
Iran has so far resumed 20% uranium enrichment at Fordow plant in accordance with the Parliament’s legislation and has warned that in the case Washington does not remove all the anti-Iran sanctions, it will also stop voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol, which gives IAEA inspectors unannounced visits to Iranian facilities.
