    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran will brief the UN nuclear watchdog on Tuesday to begin a process to increase Tehran's ability to enrich uranium, Iran's atomic energy agency said.

    "Iran will announce in a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that the process of increasing production capacity ... uranium hexafluoride ... will begin Tuesday," Kamalundi said.

    He said Iran had the ability to accelerate the production of centrifuges used to enrich uranium. UF6 is the raw material used in centrifuges.

    It seems the plan is to weaken Iran like North Korea. So it is unable to afford wars in Syria and outside its borders.

    Israeli tactic.

    It is a US-Usraeli tactic and even a strategy considering that it was going on for 40 years..But unlike North Korea, Iran made a huge mistake in its quest to avoid the unavoidable UN and US sanctions.. and that by allowing inspections of its nuclear sites..As soon as it has allowed those international inspections, its nuclear scientists were assassinated and most of its nuclear facilities closed..on top of being only allowed to enrich Uranium at the civilian level..that is 2.5 to 5%.. with a maximum 20%, and under extensive 24 h inspections.. what it is stating now in these news is just an increase in activity and amounts of enriched Uranium, not the percentage of enrichment per se!

    Israel helped Iran in its most critical time during Iran Iraq war.

    No one weakens Iran more than its stupid leadership, which throws all the oil money on terror and foreign wars.

    Iran will start producing UF6 (uranium hexafluoride) and UF4 (uranium tetrafluoride) hmm interesting development. If this happens the bomb production time will be decreased massively.

    How? Iran has started the production of UF6 and UF4 today. and is also going to achieve 190,000 SWU soon so the bomb is already in plan. What do they have to worry about now?

    Iran Informs UN it Plans to Boost Uranium Enrichment Capacity

    Iran informed on Tuesday the United Nations nuclear watchdog of its intention to increase its nuclear enrichment capacity.

    The boost will remain within the limits of the 2015 nuclear deal.

    Tuesday’s move appeared to be mainly aimed at signaling that Iran could resume its drive toward industrial-scale enrichment if the nuclear accord comes unraveled.

    Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman for Iran's nuclear agency, was quoted by state TV as saying a letter was submitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency detailing the move.

    Kamalvandi said Iran is "providing infrastructure and arrangements for high-speed and capacity in production of UF4 and UF6 gases as well as rotor of centrifuges."

    Spinning centrifuges convert the gases into enriched uranium that can be used for reactor fuel and medical isotopes. If enriched to higher levels, the material can be used for weapons.

    "It is important to note that Iran will remain far from having the fissile material necessary for a nuclear weapon even if they increase their enrichment efforts as described," The Washington-based Arms Control Association said in a statement.

    The head of Iran's nuclear agency, Ali Akbar Salehi, said Iran is prepared to resume work on advanced centrifuges that would dramatically increase its capacity for enrichment. But he said that so far, the work is limited to building a new facility for assembling the centrifuges.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reacted swiftly to Salehi's announcement, declaring that the Tehran’s aim was "unlimited enrichment of uranium to create an arsenal of nuclear bombs" to destroy his country.

    Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had ordered the increase in capacity in a speech Monday, in which he vowed that Iran would preserve its nuclear program despite the US withdrawal from the landmark 2015 accord.

    Under the 2015 agreement, Iran can only enrich uranium to 3.67 percent.

    If it chooses to abandon the deal, it has stated it could "within days" return to enrichment of 20 percent -- still within the limits of civilian use but allowing for a much quicker jump to military-grade levels of around 90 percent.
