Iran denies enriching uranium by more than 60%
Iran has denied reports that it has enriched uranium to 84%, close to weapons-grade purity.
Iran has been enriching uranium up to 60% since April 2021.
Three months ago, it began enriching uranium to this level at a second site, Fordow.
Uranium is used in making weapons at an enrichment level of approximately 90%.
So far, we haven’t made any attempt to enrich more than 60%.
The presence of particles with an enrichment rate above 60% doesn’t mean production with an enrichment higher than 60%.
Bloomberg News reported on Sunday that monitors from the International Atomic Energy Agency had discovered uranium enriched to 84% last week.
The spokesperson described the report as defamation and said it distorted the facts.
