– The agency confirmed on March 7 that Iran had begun to introduce natural uranium hexafluoride into the third series of centrifuges – this came in the International Atomic Energy Agency report that was inspected by Reuters.
The report adds that the fourth set of centrifuges have been installed, but they have not yet been filled with natural uranium hexafluoride, and the installation of the fifth group of centrifuges is still underway, and the sixth has not yet started.
In addition to its presence, Iran is now using centrifuges to enrich uranium up to five percent of the degree of fission purity – International Atomic Energy Agency countries.
This exceeds the threshold of 3.67 percent of enriched uranium permitted under the agreement, but below the threshold of 20 percent, the level at which uranium is enriched in another plant.
UF6 is a form in which uranium is placed in centrifuges to purify it.
Iran recently began to swiftly violate the provisions of an agreement to impose financial sanctions in exchange for restricting nuclear activities.
Tehran began violating the restrictions after then-US President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the agreement in 2018 and reinstated sanctions on Iran.
The agreement allows Iran to enrich uranium only with first-generation centrifuges at a commercial underground plant in Natanz.
Uranium enriched to 90 percent can be used to make atomic weapons.
