Iran nu­clear am­bi­tion

Rotorua Daily Post - - World -

The head of Iran’s nu­clear pro­gramme said that the Is­lamic Repub­lic has be­gun “pre­lim­i­nary ac­tiv­i­ties for de­sign­ing” a mod­ern process for 20 per cent ura­nium en­rich­ment for its 50-year-old re­search re­ac­tor in Tehran. Restart­ing en­rich­ment at that level would mean Iran had with­drawn from the 2015 nu­clear deal, an ac­cord that the US pulled out of in May. How­ever, Ali Ak­bar Salehi’s com­ments ap­peared aimed at telling the world Iran would slowly restart its pro­gramme.
