Iran ‘Starts Dismantling Nuclear Equipment’

A senior diplomat has reportedly said that Iran has disconnected almost a quarter of its uranium-enriching centrifuges in less than a month, according to a report from Reuters.

The news agency quotes him as saying:

“They have been dismantling centrifuges that did not contain [uranium] hexafluoride …

“Dismantling centrifuges that have or have had hexafluoride is a much more complicated thing than the clean ones.”

A confidential report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to its Board of Governors, seen by Reuters, said Iran had moved around 4,500 centrifuges from their positions at the Fordow and Natanz enrichment sites between 18th October and 15th November.
