Iran says it is enriching uranium to 60% purity at Fordo site

Tehran, Iran – Iran has started producing 60% purity enriched uranium at the Fordo underground nuclear power plant, state media reported on Tuesday, describing it as a response to a resolution by the United States’ nuclear watchdog. United Nations.

This step was seen as an important addition to the country’s nuclear program.

Enrichment to 60% purity is a short technical step away from military grade levels of 90%. Non-proliferation experts have warned in recent months that Iran now has enough 60% enriched uranium to reprocess it into fuel for at least one nuclear bomb.
