MP: Iran ready to mass produce centrifuges

September 5, 2018

TEHRAN - MP Mojtaba Zonnour, who heads the nuclear committee in parliament, said on Tuesday that Iran is ready to mass produce IR4, IR5 and IR6 centrifuges.

“We have IR4, IR5 and IR6 for mass production, but we do not take any action for the time being. We are moving within the framework of the JCPOA [the 2015 nuclear deal,” he told reporters on the sidelines of an open session of the parliament.

He noted that Iran will restart its nuclear activities if the Europeans fail to preserve the JCPOA after the U.S. exit from the agreement in May.

To keep the nuclear alive, the European Union trio – Germany, France and Britain which are signatory to the nuclear deal - are expected to present their package of proposals before the second round of U.S. sanctions takes effect in early November.

The package is expected to facilitate banking transactions and oil trade with Iran.
