UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY VIDEO) — Iran has started the process of injecting uranium gas into centrifuges at its underground Fordow facility, according to an official, in the latest unravelling of the nuclear deal with world powers since the United States pulled out of the landmark agreement in 2018.
Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told state television the agency delivered 2,000 kilograms of Uranium or UF6 to the Fordow plant, under the supervision of United Nations inspectors on Wednesday.
“The restarting of the centrifuges will take a few hours and from midnight, the process of injecting uranium gas into them will begin,” he said.
A spokesman for the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said its inspectors at the site “will report back on relevant activities”.
