Iran says enrichment starts in Fordow: state TV

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran confirmed Monday the start of uranium enrichment at its underground Fordow nuclear plant, Iran’s Arabic language al Alam TV reported.

“All of Iran’s nuclear activities, including enrichment of uranium in both Natanz and Fordow nuclear sites are under supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),” Iran’s envoy to the agency Ali Asghar Soltanieh told al Alam.

An Iranian official who asked not to be identified told Reuters: “The enrichment in Fordow has started.”

Diplomatic sources also told Reuters in Vienna that Iran had started refining uranium in Fordow.
