Iran now enriching uranium with 4th advanced centrifuge cluster — report

The UN atomic watchdog has reportedly concluded that Iran is now enriching uranium with a fourth cascade of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at its underground nuclear facility in Natanz, further breaching the embattled nuclear deal.

According to a report by International Atomic Energy Agency cited by Reuters: “On 31 March 2021, the Agency verified at [the Fuel Enrichment Plant] that: Iran had begun feeding natural UF6 into a fourth cascade of 174 IR-2m centrifuges.”

UF6 is uranium hexafluoride, which is fed into centrifuges to enrich it.
