Iran Ups Nuke Technology

0

iran-nuclearTechnicians upgrading Iran’s main uranium enrichment facility at Natanz have tripled their installations of high-tech IR-2m centrifuges that could be used in a nuclear weapons program to more than 600 in the last three months, diplomats said Wednesday. The new IR-2ms are believed to be able to enrich two to five times faster than the old machines.

However, the machines are not yet producing enriched uranium and some may be only partially installed. Still, the move is the latest sign that ten years of diplomatic efforts have failed to persuade Tehran to curb its uranium enrichment. Instead, Iran continues to increase its capacities.
