Natanz facility.

Iran’s top nuclear official said Monday that foreign estimates of the damage done to the uranium enrichment facility at Natanz are overblown, saying most of the repairs will be completed in days, not months. Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, spoke at the inauguration of the Iran Quantum Technologies Center on Monday, addressing the explosion at the Natanz uranium enrichment facility Sunday. Salehi downplayed the explosion, which has been widely attributed to Israel, saying that most of the repairs would be completed in a matter of days. “You’ll see within the next few days that a remarkable part of the acts of sabotage by the enemy will be repaired. A number of (centrifuge) machines went off-grid because of yesterday’s incident, and a number of others need to be re-examined. The ones that have been damaged will be replaced,” said Salehi.
