Iran officially resumes enriching uranium to 20% in Fordow: government spokesman

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran’s government spokesman, Ali Rabiei announced on Monday, the country has officially restarted enriching uranium at a rate of up to 20 percent at its Fordow facility.

Rabiei said, “The 20-percent enrichment started a few hours ago after gas injection, and the first UF-6 product will be ready later in the day”.

“The president had in recent days ordered the implementation of the Strategic Action to Lift Sanctions law. The gas injection process started a few hours ago, and the first UF6 enriched uranium product will be achieved within a few hours,” Rabiei said.

He noted, “The whole process started after preliminary measures including informing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and submitting the Design Information Questionnaire based on the country’s Safeguards commitments”.

Rabiei stated, “The government has clearly declared its negative view of the law passed by the Parliament, but it is duty-bound to implement the law”.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said Friday Iran had informed its inspectors of the decision by a letter, according to IFP.
