(Persia Digest) – The US Secretary of State has reacted to Iran’s intentions for enrichment.
Mike Pompeo tweeted: “We’re watching reports that Iran plans to increase its enrichment capacity. We won’t allow Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. Iran is aware of our resolve. It’s another example of Iran foolishly squandering its resources. It should surprise no one if protests in Iran continue.”
Heather Nauert, Spokesperson for the United States Department of State, also reacted on Tuesday on the possibility of Iran moving towards stepping up its uranium enrichment program.

In answer to a question re the Supreme Leader’s orders to get ready for industrial enrichment, she said: “We have seen these reports. Secretary Pompeo has outlined our policies on the subject. He clearly stated that Iran must stop uranium enrichment and nuclear reprocessing. This country must not be allowed a path to manufacturing nuclear weapons.”
Nauert added: “The IAEA is following up the developments and we are sure that if this takes place it will report it to its Board of Governors.”
As reported by Persia Digest, in response to the US withdrawal from the JCPOA, the Supreme Leader of Iran emphasized on Monday that Iran cannot accept both sanctions and nuclear limitations simultaneously. The Supreme Leader has given Iran’s atomic energy organization (AEOI) the orders to swiftly prepare itself for 190 thousand SWUs.
