Iran: Tehran Installing Centrifuges, Stockpiling 20-Percent Enriched Uranium More Slowly, Report Says

Iran has begun installing upgraded centrifuges at its Natanz enrichment facility, but the country has slowed its stockpiling of enriched uranium, according to a report released Feb. 21 by the International Atomic Energy Agency, Xinhua reported. The new centrifuges are believed to be able to significantly boost Iran's uranium capacity, although Tehran insists that they would be applied to produce 5-percent enriched uranium. According to the report, Iran has fed 28 kg of its 20-percent enriched uranium into the conversion process since December 2012, a process that make the converted material difficult to use in a nuclear bomb, leaving Iran 167 kg of 20-percent enriched uranium. Meanwhile, the development of mid-level enriched uranium increased by 32 kg, a lower speed than the previous report.
