IAEA says Iran nuclear site fully equipped

The UN nuclear agency said Friday it remained “unable” to say all Iranian activities were peaceful and that Tehran had completed installation at its Fordo site, allowing it to significantly ramp up production.

The IAEA reiterated in a new regular report that it was “unable… to conclude that all nuclear material in Iran is in peaceful activities.”

Fordo, which Iran only revealed the existence of to the IAEA in 2009, began operation in 2011, enriching uranium to 20-percent purities — close to the level needed for the fissile core of a nuclear weapon.

The IAEA said Friday that 2,784 centrifuges were now installed at the facility near the holy city of Qom, but there was no increase in the number operating.
