Iran boosts uranium enrichment in response to IAEA resolution

23 November 2022

Al Jazeera :
Tehran, Iran - Iran has increased its enrichment of uranium and use of advanced centrifuges at two nuclear sites in response to a censure resolution passed against it at the global nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
State media confirmed on Tuesday that Iran has boosted its uranium enrichment at the Fordow nuclear plant to 60 percent in reaction to the resolution passed by the IAEA's board of governors on Thursday.
Iran has also been feeding gas to centrifuges at the Natanz nuclear plant in Isfahan, which is part of the enrichment process, the reports said.
Iran had initially ramped up its uranium enrichment to 60 percent at Natanz in April 2021 after an attack on the facility that it blamed on Israel.
It has since deployed more advanced machines there, which allow for quicker enrichment and easier switching between enrichment levels.
Enrichment was also already taking place at Fordow, but at lower levels.
The current enrichment level is still below the 90-plus  percent purity required for a nuclear bomb, which Iran has pledged never to seek.
But it far exceeds the 3.67 percent level agreed as part of the country's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers that introduced caps on nuclear activity in exchange for the lifting of multilateral sanctions.
The United States unilaterally abandoned the deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in 2018, imposing harsh sanctions that have only escalated since.
