A spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said the country’s enriched uranium stockpile has reached 360 to 370 kilograms.

Axar.az reports citing Tasnim that speaking on the sidelines of a ceremony to construct a national nuclear research center in Fordow on Tuesday, Kamalvandi pointed to the country’s latest peaceful nuclear activities and said when the AEOI increased the level of uranium enrichment to a higher purity than 3.67%, it sought to meet the county’s needs.

“We are currently producing (enriched uranium) at a good capacity, and our stockpile is at least 60 to 70 kilograms more than 300kg (limit set in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal), and this amount is growing rapidly,” he said.

The spokesman further pointed to heavy water production in Iran and said the country has no obligation to send more than 130 tons of heavy water to other countries as per the nuclear agreement.

The EU’s inaction forced Tehran to stop honoring certain commitments to the nuclear deal, including a rise in the stockpile of enriched uranium.

Iran maintains that the new measures are not designed to harm the JCPOA but to save the accord by creating a balance in the commitments.
