Iran Focus

London, 8 Jun - It was reported that after weeks of silence from the Iran following Trump’s announcement of withdrawal from the nuclear deal, the Iranian Mullahs’ Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, ordered the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) to take the necessary steps to “implement a major increase in the country’s enrichment of uranium”.

However, he has left experts and analysts wondering about his intentions. The Supreme Leader specifically called on the country’s nuclear agency to “make the necessary arrangements to reach 190,000 SWU in the framework provided by the JCPOA”.

London, 6 Jun - It has been announced that the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran – Ali Akbar Salehi - is putting the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on notice that the country will probably start producing centrifuges that will be used for uranium enrichment.

He said that this would not be a violation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Agreement as it is formally known, because it allows Iran to make the parts that are needed for uranium enrichment. He stressed that it would only be a violation of the deal if Iran were to actually use the centrifuges.

London, 25 May - An image search on social media and the colour aquamarine has revealed Iran’s secret missile testing sites.

Weapons researcher Fabian Hinz was looking through social media posts by the deceased general Moghaddam, Iran’s chief rocket scientist, when he spotted a box marked with the name of small Iranian town, Shahrud, in the background of one picture.
