Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi underlined that the nuclear enrichment facility at Fordo
in Central Iran continues operation.
But Albright says the Fordo
waiver is more complicated because of information that came out after Israel exposed Iran's nuclear archive last year.
TEHRAN, May 27 (KUNA) -- Iran is able to resume 20-percent uranium enrichment at Fordo
nuclear facility in maximum two or three days, Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Sunday.
State news agencies report that Russian-made S300 PMU2 missile defense systems have been deployed at the underground Fordo
uranium enrichment plant against any possible US or Israeli attack by plane, missile or UAV.
Iran has moved S-300 long-range missiles to its Fordo
nuclear facility near the city of Qom in the center of the country, according to state-run media Sunday.
It came the same day that Iran deployed an advance Russian-made air defense system around its Fordo
nuclear facility, Iranian state TV reported.
The country has two facilities, at Natanz and Fordo
. Under yesterday's Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, enrichment will be limited at Natanz for 10 years and not permitted at Fordo
for 15 years.
This includes possible changes in the design of an unfinished reactor at Arak so that it produces less weapons-grade plutonium, enhanced UN inspections, and alterations to Iran's fortified Fordo
"We know that Iran does not need to have an underground, fortified enrichment facility like Fordo
Its report said nuclear engineer Massimo Aparo will lead the team, which will visit Natanz and Fordo
, Iran's uranium enrichment facilities.
The P5+1 grouping is particularly worried about Iran's enrichment to levels of up to 20 percent and the Fordo
fortified bunker where this activity is conducted.
