Iran: New uranium machines fuel nuclear fears
Thursday 31 January 2013
The government has announced plans to install and operate advanced uranium-enrichment machines. This would be a technological leap allowing it significantly to speed up activity the West fears could be put to developing a nuclear weapon.
In a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Tehran said it would introduce new centrifuges to its main enrichment plant near the central town of Natanz, according to an IAEA communication to member states seen by Reuters. The defiant move will increase concerns in the West and Israel about Iran's nuclear ambitions.
