1 February 2013 - Iran – Upgrade to Natanz plant announced

Statement by the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

We are extremely concerned by the Iranian announcement of the future installation of new generation centrifuges to enrich uranium at the Natanz plant.

It will significantly increase Iran’s enrichment capabilities and as such constitutes a further violation by Iran of the resolutions of the Security Council and the Board of Governors.

This sends a negative signal, while we are preparing to hold new discussions with the Iranians. We therefore, once again, urge Iran to ensure that its actions are consistent with its international obligations.
