IAEA: New Iran Centrifuges Won’t Increase Uranium Output

New centrifuges installed, not fed fuel yet

Building on an IAEA report from last week on Iran, the IAEA has elaborated on the new Natanz centrifuges, saying they are in operation, but have not been fed any feedstock gas yet.

While the IAEA confirmed  the new centrifuges are technically not allowed, they also confirmed something very important, that they have not in any way increased uranium enrichment.

That reflects that those hostile to the nuclear deal, basically the US and Israel, are continuing to complain about technical violations, and paper issues, while the reality is that there simply are no proliferation risks.

Yet hostility toward Iran is seemingly an end unto itself, and with the US wanting to keep adding to sanctions, it’s clear they don’t need good reasons, just nominal pretexts.
