Salehi warns uranium enrichment can be resumed any time

Tehran can resume enriching uranium to the 20% purity level if the P5+1 group reneges on its obligations under a potential final deal over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Ali Akbar Salehi, said.


"Regarding the 20% enriched uranium, any time that the opposite side does not live up to its commitments, we can join two cascades of centrifuges to produce more than five kilos of 20% uranium," TASS cited Salehi.


Regarding the Arak heavy water reactor, Salehi noted that a deal will also be signed between the two sides, under which a company from a country like China, France or the US would be obliged to supply Iran with what it needs regarding the facility.Stressing that there will be no limit to Iran’s research and development program, the senior official said that under a final comprehensive deal Tehran will be entitled to a full nuclear cycle and the country will also keep its peaceful nuclear program without shutting down any facilities.
