NUCLEAR: US “Concerned” over Iran’s Resumption of Building Centrifuges
July 28, 2004 - The Islamic government’s resumption of building nuclear centrifuge facilities, which can be used to make weapons-grade enriched uranium was “a direct challenge to the IAEA’s call on Iran to suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities,” US State Department Deputy Spokesman Adam Ereli said on Wednesday. “The reports we’re seeing now, are further evidence of a continued failure to abide by commitments, he added. His comments came after the Islamic government announced that it had broken seals of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors, and had resumed building centrifuges, a step towards uranium enrichment, which had been suspended under an agreement with Europe’s big three. Britain, France and Germany are due to meet with Iranian officials Thursday to discuss the impasse over Tehran's nuclear program.
