MEK Iran: Mullahs Regime Will Begin Enriching Uranium Up to 60% Purity
The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), reported that the Clerical regime blackmails the international community, declaring 60% uranium enrichment and the addition of 1,000 centrifuges to the existing machines in Natanz.
Blackmail the international community
In an attempt to blackmail the international community, the Mullah regime stated in a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) today, “It will begin enriching uranium up to 60% purity.”
The clerical regime’s Deputy Foreign Minister and chief nuclear negotiator Abbas Araghchi, wrote, “Another 1,000 centrifuges with 50% more capacity will be added to the existing machines in Natanz, in addition to replacing the damaged machines,” (reported state-run news agencies).
Addressing the clerical regime’s Assembly of Experts 0n February 22, 2021, Ali Khamenei had said: “Iran’s enrichment threshold will not be 20%, and the purity can increase as needed anywhere in the country, i.e., Enrichment may increase up to 60% for nuclear propulsion or other tasks.”
Violation of the nuclear deal
The mullah regime began enriching 20% and producing uranium metal in January, in blatant violation of the nuclear deal.
By enriching uranium to 60 percent purity and increasing the number of centrifuges, the mullahs’ regime aims to blackmail the international community and extract more concessions in the ongoing negotiations. These make it quite clear that the mullah’s regime has never abandoned the project to build a nuclear bomb.
The need for reinstatement of six UN Security Council Resolutions
Adopting a decisive policy vis-à-vis the mullahs regime and the reinstatement of six UN Security Council Resolutions, a complete halt to enrichment, shutting down its nuclear sites, and anytime, anywhere inspections are imperative to preventing the religious regime from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), on June 2020, stated: “The policies and actions of the mullahs’ regime, five years after the nuclear deal with the P5 + 1 countries, leave no doubt that this regime has never given up the project to acquire an atomic bomb and continues the deception and concealment.
The regime uses all the facilities and concessions that the nuclear deal has given to pursue terrorism, foreign warfare, and domestic repression.”
