International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has revealed that Iran plans to enrich uranium to up to 20 percent purity at Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant.
According to the latest report available from the United Nations agency, published in November, Tehran was enriching uranium to levels greater than the limit provided for in the Vienna agreement (3.67%) but not exceeding the 4.5% threshold, and still complied with the Agency's very strict inspection regime.
Iran's former ambassador to France said it seems that Europeans are pleased with the likely U.S. return to the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, under the same format.
"Iran's letter to the agency. did not say when this enrichment activity would take place", the IAEA statement added.
"It is an additional blow", a diplomat based in Vienna told AFP, as Tehran continues to retaliate to U.S. sanctions by progressively abandoning limits on its nuclear activity laid down in the deal. Iran blamed the assassination on Israel. "Once the chief gives the order, we can act very quickly", Dr Salehi added, as cited by the semi-official Iranian Students' News Agency.
According to the motion, the AEOI should start the installation, gas injection, enrichment, and storage of nuclear materials up to an appropriate enrichment degree within a period of three months using at least 1,000 IR-2m centrifuges.

Mojtaba Zonnoor, chairman of the Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told Tasnim News that the law was against the injustice of sanctions.
They initially claimed that they will remunerate for the U.S. exit and even accepted some commitments beyond JCPOA, but they neither remained faithful to those new commitments nor did they live up to their former commitments to the deal, so their disloyalty widened the gap between Iran and the EU. Even IAEA agreed that Iran was in compliance.
If Iran does go ahead with its plan, it would be the largest breach of the global nuclear deal so far.
The Iranian government opposed the initiative which was also condemned by the other signatories to the accord who called on Tehran not to "compromise the future". But his advisers talked him out of it as they thought it could escalate to a full-fledged war that could drag neighboring countries and even Russian Federation.
The 2015 nuclear deal was created to lengthen that time period, but the agreement is all but dead after the Trump administration pulled out, prompting Iran to stop abiding by numerous deal's requirements, including enrichment thresholds. With Rouhani set for reelection in 2021 and under pressure from fellow hardliners, he may not budge. President-elect Joe Biden to rejoin the relationship. At the same time, it has taken advantage of all the assistance and concessions the nuclear agreement provided to step up the export of terrorism, warmongering, and domestic repression.
"I urge you now to remedy the harm done to the balance of powers by submitting the Iran deal and the Paris agreement to the Senate as treaties".
