Iran reaches 60% uranium enrichment capacity: atomic energy spokesman

On Saturday, 9th of November 2019, a spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi said that Iran had reached a Uranium capacity of 60 per cent, a much-higher than required level for civil usage, but fell short of 90 per cent capacity needed to fuel up a nuclear weapon.

In point of fact, Iran, which had been facing off a steep sanction from United States over its oil sales which appeared to have little impacts due to the nation’s latest approach to sell off its medium- to heavy-grade crude oils at a much-cheaper price to a number of government-backed companies in China, Russia alongside India, payments of which were being processed through Russian state-giant Rosenoft, since big-league US and EU lenders were declined to process payments for Iranian crude over frets of US sanction, had been enhancing its uranium enrichment after the United States had violated a 2015 nuclear accord and inclined an tariff on Iranian crude oil in a bid to curb out the resource-rich Gulf giant’s regional influence.

Meanwhile, according to an Iranian official news agency, IRIB, report published on Saturday (November 9th), voicing a stringent tone on Iran’s nuclear enrichment which would likely to face off quicker answers amid growing tension in the Gulf, AEOI spokesman Kamalvandi said in a news conference at Iran’s underground Fordow nuclear plant, “The organization has the possibility to produce 5%, 20% and 60%, and has this capacity. ”
