Iran to convert more uranium

-

AFP: Iran said on Sunday that it will convert new consignments of uranium at its plant outside the central city of Isfahan, in defiance of pressure to renounce such sensitive nuclear activities. TEHRAN, Nov 6 (AFP) – Iran said on Sunday that it will convert new consignments of uranium at its plant outside the central city of Isfahan, in defiance of pressure to renounce such sensitive nuclear activities.

“We have told the (International Atomic Energy) Agency that we are going to inject new initial materials (uranium ore) into the production chain,” Javad Vaidi, an official from Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, told state television.

Uranium conversion is the precursor to uranium enrichment, a process that can be used to make the fuel for civilian power stations or the explosive core of a nuclear bomb.

The IAEA has already called on Iran to suspend all uranium enrichment activities in a resolution that set out the conditions for hauling Tehran before the UN Security Council over its nuclear programme.
