Iran Hails ‘More Than Doubled’ Nuclear Enrichment Despite Int’l Backlash
(Worthy News) – Mohammad Eslami, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) announced on Saturday that the Persian Gulf nation’s uranium enrichment capacity “more than doubled” despite continuous international concerns about the country expanding its nuclear capabilities.
Eslami said during a meeting with Iranian parliamentarians that the capacity for the enrichment of uranium in Iran increased as a result of the strategic action plan that was passed by the parliament in 2020, the Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
The AEOI chief praised the parliament for passing the law. He said that it helped protect Iran’s national interests and increased uranium enrichment to a level twice as high as the total capacity since the beginning of the nuclear industry in Iran, according to Tasnim News Agency.
