Iran has started enriching uranium at its underground Natanz plant with a second type of advanced centrifuge, the IR-4, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a report obtained by Reuters on Tuesday. The move is yet another breach by Iran of the nuclear deal it signed with major powers in 2015. “On 15 March 2021, the Agency verified that Iran began feeding the cascade of 174 IR-4 centrifuges already installed at FEP with natural UF6,” the IAEA said in the report to member states dated Monday, referring to uranium hexafluoride, the form in which uranium is fed into centrifuges for enrichment. Iran has consistently scaled back its compliance with the 2015 deal in response to former US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from it in 2018.
