IAEA to step up oversight at Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) intends to step up monitoring activities at Iran’s Fordow nuclear facility, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

"Director General Rafael Mariano Grossi today said Iran had started producing high enriched uranium - UF6 (uranium hexafluoride) enriched up to 60% - using the existing two cascades of IR-6 centrifuges in the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, in addition to such production that has taken place at Natanz since April 2021," the agency quoted IAEA as saying in a statement.

According to the report, Tehran plans to boost its production of low-enriched (to 5% or 20%) uranium in Fordow by installing 14 additional cascades of IR-6 centrifuges. Moreover, The Islamic Republic plans to step up nuclear enrichment operations at its underground Natanz Fuel Enrichment Facility and create a second production building with a capacity of over 100 centrifuge cascades there.
