Iran on Saturday announced the operation of 1,044 advanced centrifuges at Fordow reactor. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will visit the site of the reactor on Sunday, the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA) said on Saturday.
“We have operated 1,044 advanced centrifuges in the Fordow reactor, and we will expand energy production at the Fordow complex in the coming weeks”, IAEA spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi told a news briefing.
He added: “We transferred two tons of nuclear materials to the Fordow reactor under the supervision of IAEA monitors, stressing that the nuclear agreement requires us not to enrich at Fordow for 15 years, but we activated the centrifuges in this reactor to produce permanent isotopes”.
“Iran has managed to separate the valuable elements from the heavy elements”, Kamalvandi said. “We thank Russia for helping us in this field. We will announce to the world tomorrow that we have taken important steps in our nuclear program”.
Iranian nuclear is carried out under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
