 Iran is installing new centrifuges to further break through the restrictions of the Iranian nuclear agreement


BEIJING, Sept. 10, according to foreign media reports, the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed on September 9 that Iran is installing advanced centrifuges to further break through the restrictions of the Iranian nuclear agreement.

A statement issued by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) stated that on September 7 it had confirmed that the following centrifuges (in Iran) have been installed or are in the process of being installed: 22 IR-4, 1 IR-5, 30 IR-6 and 3 IR-6s.

Iran announced Wednesday that it had launched an advanced centrifuge to increase its uranium enrichment reserves as a third phase of measures to suspend the implementation of the Iranian nuclear agreement.

The IAEA pointed out that the centrifuges were installed at the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran. All installed centrifuges are ready to be tested with uranium hexafluoride (UF6), but no centrifuges were tested with UF6 on 7 and 8 September 2019.

In July 2015, Iran reached an Iranian nuclear agreement with the six countries on the Iranian nuclear issue (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany). According to the agreement, Iran promises to limit its nuclear program and the international community will lift sanctions against Iran. In May 2018, the United States announced its withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear agreement, followed by the gradual resumption of sanctions against Iraq suspended as a result of the agreement. In May 2019, Iran announced the suspension of some provisions of the Iranian nuclear agreement.
