Iran Fires Up Nuke Plant
Today, UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director-General Mohamed ElBaradei informed members of the Vienna-based agency’s Board of Governors that Iran started to feed uranium ore concentrate (UOC) into the first part of the process line at the UCF.
“This activity was commenced following the installation today by the IAEA of cameras covering the input stage of the UOC process line, but regrettably prior to completion of the in situ testing of the cameras, which normally takes 24 hours following installation,” IAEA said in a statement. “It should be noted that the sealed parts of the process line remain intact.”
The cameras and seals are part of the safeguards under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which Iran has signed, aimed at ensuring that materials and equipment are not diverted to weapons production.
In taking this action, Iran has breached agreements reached with European nations and the UN. Will they be strong willed enough to take out the nukes ... I mean take the appropriate action?
