Iran says able to enrich uranium even if attacked

Reuters: Iran will be able to carry out uranium enrichment even in the case of a military attack on its nuclear facilities, Iran’s nuclear envoy said in Moscow on Thursday.

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Iran will be able to carry out uranium enrichment even in the case of a military attack on its nuclear facilities, Iran’s nuclear envoy said in Moscow on Thursday.

“We are faced with a very serious threat and so we have had to take measures to protect our facilities. We have provided for another facility in Fardo near Qom,” Ali Asghar Soltanieh, envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told reporters.

“It is, so to speak, a reserve facility, so that if a site is attacked, we can continue the enrichment process,” he said.
