UK, France and Germany deeply concerned about Iran nuclear programme
- 07 December 2020
Britain, France, and Germany have raised concerns over the recent law passed by the Iranian Parliament, sparking fears of a World War 3 outbreak, APA reports.
The Iranian Parliament recently passed a law which if implement would expand Tehran’s nuclear program and limit the monitoring access of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This comes amid growing tensions across the globe.
The three powers said in a joint statement: "If Iran is serious about preserving a space for diplomacy, it must not implement these steps."
This comes after Iran told the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog it plans to install three more clusters of advanced IR-2m centrifuges at its underground uranium enrichment plant at Natanz.
The agency wrote: “Iran informed the Agency that the operator of the Fuel Enrichment Plant (FEP) at Natanz ‘intends to start the installation of three cascades of IR-2m centrifuge machines’ at FEP.”
They added these were in addition to one of the IR-2m machines already used for enrichment there.
