Iran has set up a new underground facility for producing uranium-enriching centrifuge parts at its Natanz nuclear site, UN nuclear watchdog chief Rafael Grossi says.

Grossi has informed International Atomic Energy Agency members of the development, Reuters reports.

The old workshop for making such equipment had been located at the Karaj nuclear site, which Iran claims was targeted by Israel last year.
