"SALZBURG, Austria (AP) — Iran is poised to double its output of higher-enriched uranium at its fortified underground facility, the U.N. nuclear agency said Friday — a development that puts Tehran within months of being able to make the core of a nuclear warhead.

The finding also calls into question a tentative new U.S. plan meant to induce Tehran to compromise on its nuclear program by offering a rollback of crippling new anti-Iran sanctions if Tehran cuts back on enriching uranium to 20 percent.

In its report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran was ready within days to ramp up its production of 20 percent enriched uranium at its plant at Fordo using 700 more centrifuges.

That would double Iran's present output and cut in half the time it would take to acquire enough of the substance needed to make a nuclear weapon, reducing it to just over three months.

Iran says it has no interest in making nuclear arms, just nuclear power for its citizens, but the United States and other nations believe otherwise. Iran has refused to give up enrichment despite international sanctions and offers of reactor fuel from abroad and for years has stalemated an IAEA probe of suspicions that it worked secretly on developing such arms."

Iran increases nuclear enrichment capacity, report says

Iran has finished installing centrifuges at a fortified underground facility and can sharply increase production of enriched uranium to a purity that can be quickly improved to weapons grade, the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency said Friday in a report likely to stir new concern.

Iran ready to double uranium enrichment at Fordo - IAEA

Iran nuclear crisis

Far apart
Western 'sabotage'
Ongoing stand-off
UK mulls options

Iran is ready to double the output at its underground uranium enrichment facility, the UN nuclear watchdog says.

A leaked report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said there were 2,784 centrifuges at Fordo, and that Iran could soon double the number operating from 700 to 1,400.

The development is likely to fuel Western suspicions that Iran is seeking to develop nuclear weapons.

The government in Tehran insists the nuclear programme is entirely peaceful.

Talks this year about the uranium enrichment programme between Iran and the so-called P5+1 - the US, UK, France, China, Russia and Germany - have made little progress.
Bushehr fuel 'removed'

Iran's progress at Fordo was disclosed in a leaked report based on the findings of the IAEA's inspectors, who visit the facility regularly.

While the uranium enrichment plant is not yet fully operational - with only about 700 of the 3,000 centrifuges the facility is designed in use - experts say it could be within months.

The IAEA report said four new cascades of 174 centrifuges each "having been subjected to vacuum testing, were ready for feeding" with uranium hexafluoride (UF6) gas.

Once the new cascades were in operation, monthly production of 20%-enriched (medium-enriched) uranium would be about 25kg (55lb) per month, compared with 15kg at present, one official said.

The facility at Fordo, which is buried deep under a mountain inside a military base near the holy city of Qom, is designed to contain 16 cascades producing medium-enriched uranium, which experts say could be enriched to about 90%, or weapons-grade, in a relatively short time.

The IAEA also revealed in its report that Iran had produced about 233kg (512lb) of higher-grade enriched uranium since 2010, an increase of 43kg since August.

Earlier this year, the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) used 96kg of its supply of 20%-enriched uranium for conversion into fuel for its medical research reactor in Tehran. Experts say it would be difficult to turn the fuel into weapons-grade uranium.

Nuclear fuel had also been removed from the core of the nuclear reactor at Bushehr without a reason being given by Iran, the IAEA added.

The report also said that "extensive activities" at the Parchin military site had seriously undermined an investigation into indications that experiments related to nuclear weapons might have been carried out there. Iran is suspected of attempting to removing evidence.

Iran has denied that there are any nuclear-related activities at Parchin.

The IAEA's report concluded that the agency was "unable... to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities".

All based on a 'leaked' report by the top watchdog agency in the world.

Same crap over and over and over and then more 'leaked' crap ........................................

We still have all the alphabet agency reports saying that they are not trying to make a bomb.

Pointless crap to convince sheeple. That would be sheeple snacks. Short bytes of info to satisfy the attention span of sheeple.

I really wish someone, anyone would hurry up and invent the "end all mankind bomb" before we are able to infect the universe like a freakin virus! So who cares! How many friggin' countries have "the bomb" already? How many times does the human race need to have the ability to end itself? If one country has it, why the hell not all for equality's sake? Are we supposed to run and dive under a desk, a table or some such? What is the point of all the fear mongering? I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I'm all feared out!

There is simply no way to tell the people management information, from the real facts these days.....
With the taking over of the media by the MIL/IND complex and the bedding down of goverment and corporate entities together.....
We have virtually been made INFORMATION PRISONERS to the state.
I view the person to person contact afforded by the internet, as our only respitfrom this kind of life intrusion by the PTB.
Everything i hear MSM wise is suspect immediately because of the source....advertising and mind control have melded techniques together into a very sinister science.And we are the recipients of the full Monte.!
