Iran: Tehran wants to triple uranium production

Vice President Fereidun Abbasi, who is also head of Iran's nuclear program said, according to a report by the official news agency IRNA on Wednesday, the entire program including the new centrifuges will soon be in the system of Fordo near the town of Kom be installed.

The move from the current location Natanz will be monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Iran admitted the existence of the secret facility in Fordo a first-time in September 2009, after Western intelligence agencies had discovered it. At that time the laboratories in the former munitions depot, which were dug into a mountain, were still under construction.

The area is heavily guarded by the Republican Guard, a military installation adjacent to fend off potential attackers. Iran is suspected, according to the cover of civilian nuclear energy to seek nuclear weapons. The UN has imposed sanctions only four laps to force Iran to abandon its uranium enrichment program.
