Iran announces four-fold increase in uranium enrichment

Making good on threats to pull back from its commitments under the 2015 nuclear pact with world powers, Tehran has quadrupled its production of enriched uranium, according to Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.

The increase was announced Monday by a spokesperson for Iran’s nuclear authority, Behrouz Kamalvandi, who told Iranian media that the decision was made to “counteract offensive sanctions.”

Kamalvandi clarified that Iran would not increase its number of centrifuges, and that the uranium would for now remain at its current level of enrichment, at just over 3.5 percent.
