|Iran has capacity to quadruple enrichment at Fordo: EU diplomat||
TEHRAN – Iran would be able to quadruple the enrichment of 20 percent uranium at its Fordo facility by using all the centrifuges installed there, Bloomberg quoted an unidentified European diplomat as saying on Friday.
The main bone of contention between Tehran and the West is Iran’s uranium enrichment program.
Iran says all its nuclear activities are totally peaceful, and, as an IAEA member and a nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) signatory, it has the legal right to produce nuclear fuel for its research reactors and nuclear power plants.
The major powers have demanded that Iran halt 20 percent enrichment of uranium, shut down the Fordo uranium enrichment facility, and ship all of its stocks of 20 percent enriched uranium out of the country.
Iran’s main demand is that its right to uranium enrichment, as enumerated in the NPT, be recognized.
