Iran installing more modern, faster centrifuges: IAEA
VIENNA (AFP) - Iran has installed hundreds more centrifuges that could enable it to enrich uranium faster since May, a UN atomic watchdog report showed on Wednesday, as long-stalled talks were due to resume.
"Iran has continued to install IR-2m centrifuges in one of the units" at the Natanz site, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in its quarterly report, seen by AFP.
The Islamic republic now has 1,008 high-tech IR-2M centrifuges, up from 698 cited in the IAEA's last report in May.
These were however " under vacuum", the report said.
