Iran to Triple Enriched Uranium Output

“This year, under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) … we will increase the production capacity by three times," IAEO chief Fereydoun Abbasi told Press TV on Wednesday.

Abbasi also said that the country will shift its uranium enrichment activities from the central Iranian city of Natanz to Fordo in Qom province near the south of the capital Tehran.

Abbasi, however, pointed out that Iran will not stop 20-percent enrichment at Natanz until it makes sure the Fordo production is up to speed.

On Tuesday, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told reporters that building a new generation of homemade centrifuges was under way.

The announcement came only a few days after IAEA chief Yukiya Amano claimed he had received new evidence of possible military dimensions to Iran's nuclear activities, a matter strongly dismissed by the Islamic Republic.

The US and its allies accuse Iran of pursuing a military nuclear program, and used this pretext to pressure the UN Security Council to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Iran.

Iran, a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, insists on its legal right to utilize nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
