Iran turns to use of more advanced centrifuges


Iran has begun operating advanced IR-5 centrifuges, which enrich uranium at a much greater speed than the IR-1 centrifuges permitted under the 2015 nuclear accord. It was announced on Monday by Ali Akbar Salehi head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, on state television. This was another Iranian move to step away from its commitments under the nuclear treaty that Tehran signed with six world powers four years ago. Salehi said that Iran’s nuclear program was working on the development of even faster centrifuges, without elaborating.
