The International Atomic Energy Agency has confirmed that Iran has begun building an underground centrifuge assembly facility near the site of the previous facility in Natanz, where an explosion occurred last July.
The Secretary-General of the IAEA, “Rafael Grossi“, stated: “They have started, but the work has not been completed. This is a long process.” And he did not disclose more information in this regard, indicating that this information is considered confidential.
He also indicated that Iran continues to increase the volume of enriched uranium it has, but it is still not sufficient to make a nuclear weapon.
It is noteworthy that the facility in Natanz was subjected to an explosion last July in what the Iranian authorities described as an “act of sabotage.”
The head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, had stated that Iran would build a new underground facility in the same area.
