Post the July 2 explosion in Iran’s nuclear facility, the country has paved way for the construction of modern infrastructure.
Ali Akbar Salehi, Head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI), said that a new and more modern centrifuge hall is under construction, in the mountainous areas near Natanz.
Ali Akbar Salehi said, “It has been decided to establish a more modern, vaster and more comprehensive hall, in all aspects, in the heart of the mountains near Natanz, and this has already started.”
The information was divulged in the side-lines of a briefing session at the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission. Salehi informed that the July 2 explosion occurred in a special hall for advanced centrifuges.
The AEOI reported that on July 2, an “incident” occurred at an industrial shed under construction in Natanz, without causing casualties or disrupting ongoing activity in the facilities. Later in August, Iran’s security services concluded, the explosion in Natanz was a “sabotage act”, informed AEOI.
