(September 9, 2019 / JNS) Iran has been installing dozens of advanced centrifuges to accelerate uranium enrichment, violating the 2015 nuclear deal, warned the International Atomic Energy Agency on Monday.
It represents just the latest Iranian violations of the four-year-old agreement.
A centrifuge enriches uranium through spinning uranium hexafluoride gas.
Iran is allowed to operate solely 5,060 older IR-1 centrifuges, per the nuclear accord, which also allows the Islamic Republic to have far less advanced centrifuges for research purposes, not to enrich uranium.
Over the summer, Iran has vowed to exceed the agreement’s limits on research and development.
In July, the IAEA confirmed that the regime surpassed the uranium-enrichment limit under the agreement.
