US reacts strongly to Iran’s announcement of uranium enrichment
The United States has strongly condemned Iran’s announcement of uranium enrichment.
The US State Department called Iran’s announcement a clear attempt to escalate its nuclear extortion campaign.
“This effort will always fail. We are confident that the International Atomic Energy Agency will monitor and report any new nuclear activity,” the State Department spokesman said.
On the other hand, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Iran’s uranium enrichment is aimed at developing nuclear weapons. Iran has started enriching 20% uranium at the Fordow plant.
