Iran: We are easily able to enrich uranium by 90% International 2021-01-07 | 10:06 255 views A spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, Behrouz Kamalondi, confirmed that his country is easily able to enrich uranium by more than 20 percent, up to 90 percent. Today, Thursday, "IRNA" agency quoted Kamalundi as saying that his country, in light of the progress it has made, is easily able to accomplish any percentage of uranium enrichment, even more than 40, 60 or 90 percent. Of course, the text of the law approved by the Iranian Shura Council is to enable the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran to carry out enrichment of uranium by more than 20 percent, if necessary, and we are currently studying other areas. The spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, Behrouz Kamalundi, confirmed that "if we take the decision today to enrich above 20 percent, that is easily possible and we are currently working on studying the necessary cases. The official representative of the Iranian government, Ali Rabia, announced earlier that the process of uranium enrichment was launched." At the level of 20% in the "Fordow" nuclear facility, Iran ratified the Law on "a strategic measure to lift sanctions", at the initiative of Parliament, which provides for the production of uranium with enrichment of 20% and above. Earlier, Rafael Mariano Grossi, Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, informed the agency's board of governors and the UN Security Council about Iranian plans to increase uranium enrichment by up to 20%, coinciding with the escalation of tension between Tehran and Washington.
