Diplomats tell The Associated Press that Iran plans to vastly increase the speed of its uranium enrichment program, which can make both reactor fuel and the core of nuclear warheads.Likewise, Reuters reported that it had obtained a document - an IAEA communication sent to member states - stating that the Secretariat of the IAEA had received a letter from the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran - dated January 23, 2013 - informing him of the aforementioned plans.
The diplomats say Iran has told the International Atomic Energy Agency that it wants to install thousands of high-technology machines at its main enriching site at Natanz, in central Iran. The machines can enrich two or three times faster than the present equipment being used by Tehran.
