US Calls Iran Uranium Enrichment at Fordo “Troubling”

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said today Iran's decision to enrich uranium at the country’s new underground Fordo facility was “especially troubling” and urged Tehran to return to serious talks with Western powers over its nuclear program.

"This step once again demonstrates the Iranian regime's blatant disregard for its responsibilities and that the country's growing isolation is self-inflicted," Clinton said [Reuters, 10 January].

“There is no plausible justification for this production. Such enrichment brings Iran a significant step closer to having the capability to produce weapons-grade highly enriched uranium,” Clinton added.
