Iran begins uranium enrichment to record high




Tehran responded sharply to the explosion at its nuclear facility — for the first time in history, Iranian centrifuges are working at maximum





Against the background of the recent accident at one of its nuclear facilities, Iran has officially begun enriching uranium to 60% — the highest rate in the history of the Iranian nuclear program.

This was announced on Twitter by the speaker of the Iranian Majlis, Mohammad-Bagher Ghalibaf.

“I am proud to announce that at 00:40 last night, young and religious Iranian scientists were able to obtain 60% enriched uranium,” he wrote on April 16, congratulating his compatriots on this “ success.”

Later, the Iranian media confirmed this information. At the same time, it is noted that the rate of uranium enrichment is much less than that of which local scientists are capable.

Earlier, international inspectors said that Iran plans to enrich uranium at its underground fortified nuclear facility in Natanz, which is capable of withstanding airstrikes.

Such a move could lead to increased tensions, even though Iran has returned to indirect talks with the United States on a return to the nuclear deal torn up by US ex-President Donald Trump.

It is worth noting that earlier this month, the Iranians threatened to start enriching uranium to 60% after the accident at the Natanz facility, which official Tehran blamed on Israel. Israel denies any involvement in the incident.

Earlier this year, a bill was introduced in the Iranian parliament that obliges the government to take measures to “destroy” Israel by 2041.
