Iran’s nuclear chief says the country has upgraded the power installations at its Natanz facility to realize its long-term goals. Ali Akbar Salehi told reporters that the infrastructure, which has been developed domestically, has the capability to produce several hundred-thousand Separative Work Units of enriched uranium. Salehi said Iran is also speeding up other work on infrastructure, so that it can immediately return to a higher level of capability than before the nuclear agreement, if it collapses. He said this includes work on a facility for production of advanced centrifuges. The nuclear chief noted that Iran has stayed committed to the accord, but is ready for all scenarios if it fails. Salehi’s comments came a day after the Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution called on the Atomic Energy Organization to make preparations to upgrade uranium enrichment without delay.
