The representative of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Behruz Kamalwandi, said that Tehran had brought the enrichment level to 4.5%.
According to Kamalwandi, Iranian nuclear facilities need an enrichment rate of 1.1% to 4.5% to operate.
“Therefore, an indicator below 5% is still enough,” Deutsche Welle quotes Kamalvandi.
At the same time, the representative of the Atomic Energy Organization made it clear that the level of enrichment can be increased up to 20% in the long term.
In addition, on July 8 the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed Iran’s increase in uranium enrichment levels up to 4.5%. The IAEA does not consider the level of enrichment of uranium to 5% dangerous.
As The Journalist reported, European Union and IAEA are extremely concerned about Iran’s plans for uranium enrichment.
