    TEHRAN, FEB 11 : Iran is ready to boost the capacity of its uranium enrichment, Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) said.

    "Based on a decree by Iran's Supreme Leader and the emphasis put on this issue by AEOI head, the country is ready to increase its uranium enrichment capacity to 190,000 separative work units (SWUs)," Xinhua quoted Kamalvandi as saying to Press TV.

    In July 2018, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the AEOI, said that Iran had set up a factory to manufacture rotors used in advanced centrifuge machines, which was part of plans to elevate the country's uranium enrichment capacity to 190,000 SWUs.

    The factory had the capacity to manufacture around 60 IR-6 centrifuge machines each day, Salehi said.


    SWU is the standard measure of the effort required to separate isotopes of uranium during an enrichment process. 1 SWU is equivalent to one kg of separative work.

    Earlier, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had ordered the AEOI to prepare for the enrichment of uranium up to a level of 190,000 SWUs.

    On Sunday, Kamalvandi said that Iran is also ready to increase the level of its uranium enrichment to 20 per cent of purity.

    Under an international nuclear deal in 2015, which put an end to the Iranian controversial nuclear issue, Iran agreed to reduce the purity of its enriched uranium to three per cent.

    Iran has drawn up plans to start re-designing the Arak heavy water reactor given the fact that the signatories to the nuclear deal have failed to fulfill their commitments, Kamalvandi also said.

    Following the withdrawal of Washington from the Iranian nuclear deal in May last year and subsequent re-imposition of sanctions against Tehran, Iran has urged the remaining parties to step up measures to secure the country's economic interests enshrined by the deal.

    Meanwhile, Tehran has also threatened that it may reconsider its approach to the deal, if the signatories fail to guarantee Iran's benefits from the accord.

    Good, Iran limits its Nuclear energy production for peanuts in return, they should just go full bore in my opinion.

    What a damn sham international diplomacy has become!!!

    For the first time during Trump presidency, they(anti Iran folks in Washington) are showing their fears of losing. I can see this in their new speaks and actions
    They(Trump guys) are understanding their pressure won't effect on Iran decisions and actually it making their positions worst in west Asia.
    Time is in the favor of Iran and they know this, for that reason they have rush to bring Iran behind table as soon as possible(They are behind their imaginary time frame against Iran). The Iran must not negotiate with them till they respect past negotiation result and deal otherwise any new negotiations are useless and nobody can grantee the results.
    Now is the time that Iran must use its cards and improve power of it's friends in region to max pressure on them.

    The answer is not pushing back, it is pushing forward but smartly and slowly with very smart time setting, not pushing too hard to make war and not too soft.
    parallel to this Iran must reform it's economy, base on internal solutions (not continuing stupid solutions base on west and east).

    my predictions for next months:
    Iran will violate nuclear deal lines without finishing deal.
    Iran will arm it's friends with new and game changing missiles and technologies such as teach cyber war to damage enemy.
    Iran will move more economically toward it's neighbors like Iraq and Turkey which is good thing.
    Iran will try to solve it's problems with Saudi without bringing Americans inside the negotiation table.
    Iran will focus more on producing any essential foods or goods locally in any cost.

    Get nukes quicker than USA gets hypersonic cruise missiles.

    And make MRBM that are like faraday cages. Not allowing any frequencies in. When you have those, the zionists will all be running for their bunkers and will not attack.

    Iran needs a Made in Iran 2025, like China has.
