Iran to start injecting gas into centrifuges at Fordow on Wednesday

President Hassan Rouhani says Iran will start injecting uranium gas into centrifuges at the Fordow enrichment facility on Wednesday, in the latest step the country is taking away from a 2015 multinational nuclear deal in response to the US’s withdrawal.

In a Tuesday speech broadcast live on TV, Rouhani said the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) will be ordered to begin the gas injection process at the Fordow nuclear facility — where 1,044 centrifuges are installed — under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Wednesday.

He, however, reaffirmed that all actions Iran has so far taken to reduce its commitments under the nuclear deal remain reversible.

The president said Iran is ready to resume its nuclear commitments when the remaining parties to the deal — officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) — fulfill their end of the bargain.

Iran, he added, cannot continue to uphold its side of the agreement unilaterally, while the other parties keep failing Tehran.

The Iranian chief executive further expressed Iran’s readiness to restart nuclear talks with the member states of the P5+1 group — the US, France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China — if Washington returns to the deal and removes all the “wrong, cruel and illegal” sanctions it has re-imposed on Iran after abandoning it last year.
