IAEA chief rejects Israeli claims on Iran’s plan for 90% uranium enrichment

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has dismissed claims by the Israeli regime that Iran is gearing up to enrich uranium to 90 percent purity.

In an interview with France 24 on Wednesday, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi was asked about intelligence the Israel purportedly shared with the US and the Europeans suggesting that Iran is taking technical steps towards 90% enrichment,

“There is no 90% enrichment at the moment in the Islamic Republic of Iran. You have enrichment at 5%, you have enrichment at 20%, you have enrichment of 60% … but we don’t have any information about 90% enrichment,” he replied.

The remarks came as envoys from Iran and the P4+1 group of countries — Britain, France, Russia, and China plus Germany — are engaged in the seventh round of talks in Vienna aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, official known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
