Iran has begun construction of its NatGen nuclear facility in satellite images released on Wednesday, as the United Nations’ (UN) nuclear agency admitted that Tehran had an underground advanced centrifuge after an alleged sabotage last summer. Assembly plant is constructed.
The construction of President Donald Trump’s campaign comes as America has election day, whose maximum pressure campaign against Iran has left Tehran with all limits on its nuclear program, and Joe Biden, to return to the pact Desire expressed. The outcome of the vote is likely to determine which approach the US adopts. Tensions between Iran and the US led to a war at the beginning of the year.
Since August, Iran has built a new or retrograde road south of Natzan, which analysts believe is a pre-firing range for security forces at the enrichment facility, the San Francisco-based Planet Labs show Images. A satellite image on Monday shows that the site appears to be construction equipment there.
Analysts at the James Martin Center for Nuclear Nonproliferation Studies at Middlebury Institute of International Studies say they believe excavation of the site is ongoing.
“This road also goes into the mountains so it could be the fact that they are digging some kind of structure that is going to be in the front and is going to be a tunnel in the mountains,” said Jeffrey Lewis, an expert at the institute that Studies Iran’s nuclear program. “Or maybe they are going to bury it right there.”
Iran’s mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, told state television last month that the destroyed site above the ground facility was being replaced “among the mountains surrounding Natzan”.
Rafael Grossi, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), told The Associated Press on Tuesday that his inspectors were aware of the construction. He said that Iran had previously informed IAEA inspectors, who continue to access Iran’s sites despite the collapse of the nuclear deal.
“It means that they have started, but it is not complete. It is a long process, ”said Grossi.
