Iran’s Khamenei orders raising uranium enrichment to 90,000 SWU

Supreme Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ali Khamenei on Monday ordered authorities to raise uranium enrichment to 190,000 SWU (separative work units).

In a speech before some officials, Khamenei said the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) should have required arrangements and pave the way for achieving 190,000 SWU enrichment in line with the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He noted that the Iranian government and people would not tolerate sanctions and nuclear restrictions, adding that this will not happen.

Iran and the European countries are conducting talks regarding the nuclear agreement from which the United States withdrew on May 8.
