Iran installing new nuclear equipment: IAEA
VIENNA (AFP) - Iran has begun installing next-generation equipment at one of its main nuclear plants, a new UN atomic agency report said Thursday, five days before talks with world powers.
"On 6 February 2013, the Agency observed that Iran had started the installation of IR-2m centrifuges" at the Natanz plant, the International Atomic Energy Agency report said.
"This is the first time that centrifuges more advanced than the IR-1 have been installed" at the plant, it said.
The quarterly report seen by AFP also said however that Iran has not started operating any new equipment at its Fordo plant.
