Iran able to enrich uranium up to 90%

Iranian President said on Wed. that the country is able to enrich uranium up to 90 percent if it desires.

Making the remarks addressing the Cabinet meeting, he said “AEOI can enrich uranium by 20% and 60% and if one day our reactor needs it, it can produce 90-percent uranium.”

Noting that Iran has shown that it can resolve its major issues with the world via negotiation, Rouhani said after the withdrawal of the US from the JCPOA, Iran decided to test other solutions when holding talks did not work. 

He added that by pulling out from the JCPOA, Trump sought to kill the deal and make Iran’s economy collapse but none of his dreams came true.

The president said that the Westerners wanted to shut down Fordow nuclear site but today, AEOI can enrich uranium by 20% and 60% and if need, it can produce 90-percent uranium.
