Iran Says Ready to Resume Nuclear Enrichment Activities
Iran says it is set to resume sensitive uranium enrichment-related activities despite international pressure for a complete freeze.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi said on Sunday that Iran had decided to resume some enrichment activities at a nuclear conversion facility in Isfahan. He did not elaborate or give a timetable. Britain, Germany and France say a resumption of uranium processing at Isfahan would violate a deal they reached with Iran in November.
Asefi said the decision to resume some activities is "fully compatible" with the Paris agreement.
Meanwhile, Asefi said that Iran is preparing a bill to ratify a protocol to put its atomic work under stricter international control. Iran signed the additional protocol in 2003, but the International Atomic Energy Agency has insisted that Tehran's parliament ratify the signature.
