Iran activates second advanced centrifuge cascade – IAEA

Iran has begun enriching uranium with a second cascade of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at the Natanz underground plant, the international Atomic Energy Agency reported on Tuesday. The UN watchdog said that the installation of this second batch was nearing completion and a third cluster of the same centrifuges had begun.

It was reported earlier that Iran had upgraded its uranium enrichment to 20pc purity at the Fordow underground facility..

Iran’s accelerated production of fissile material is another flagrant violation of its 2015 nuclear accord with six world powers and indicates that the Islamic Republic is going full speed ahead on its nuclear program.
