Tehran installing 3,000 centrifuges, Iranian legislator says

`Iran has begun installing 3,000 centrifuges to increase its uranium enrichment program, a senior Iranian legislator said Saturday — but the claim was later denied by the country’s nuclear body.

Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the head of the Iranian parliament’s foreign policy and national security committee, said the installation of the centrifuges — which spin uranium gas into enriched material — was underway at a plant in Natanz.

The installation “stabilizes Iran’s capability in the field of nuclear technology,” Boroujerdi said, according to the official Islamic Republic News Agency. [..]

“No new centrifuge machine has been installed in Natanz facility,” Simorgh was quoted as saying by Iran’s IRNA news agency.’
