Ahmadinejad: Nuke Fuel Production

Preseident Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today delivered the oft-promised “good news” to Iranian public; the Islamic Republic is now capable of producing nuclear fuel on an “industrial scale.” Ahmadinejad did not specify how many centrifuges were now operational at Natanz, but he had said before that the government’s goal was to start with at least 3,000 centrifuges needed to enrich uranium at industrial scale, and to expand the number to 60,000.

Ahmadinejad also vowed that Iran would not give up its rights to enrich uranium. The “good news” announced today will put the country on a collision course with the UN Security Council, who has banned such activities, and with the US that believes that the Islamic Republic’s goal is to produce atomic bombs.
