Iran Stepping Back From Nuclear Deal With Increased Fordow Activity
Thursday, 7 November 2019 09:54 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Iranian media reported Wednesday that Iran has put a container containing 2,000 kilograms of uranium hexafluoride in its Fordow nuclear facility in order to begin injecting uranium gas into centrifuges.

The move is Iran's latest step away from the agreement it signed in 2015 with a group of world powers to limit its nuclear activity in exchange for sanctions relief.

Under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran was allowed to keep 1,044 centrifuges at Fordow in six cascades, four of which were to remain idle while the other two were allowed to spin without uranium.

"Iran's 4th step in reducing its commitments under the JCPOA by injecting gas to 1044 centrifuges begins today," Iranian President Hassan Rouhani wrote on Twitter.  "Thanks to U.S. policy and its allies, Fordow will soon be back to full operation."

Reuters quoted a spokesman from the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog agency saying its inspectors were on the ground in Iran and would report "any relevant activities" to its headquarters in Vienna.

The United States has criticized Iran's increased nuclear activity, which followed last year's U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal and a subsequent push by Iran for the remaining signatories to help Iran deal with U.S. sanctions.
