  • Iran racing to expand enrichment at underground plant, confidential IAEA report shows
According to  a confidential UN nuclear watchdog report, Iran is rapidly expanding its ability to enrich uranium with advanced centrifuges at its underground plant at Natanz and now intends to go further than previously planned.  While indirect talks between Iran and the United States on reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal have stalled, Iran has bought an ever larger number of advanced centrifuges that the deal bans it from using to produce enriched uranium.  Iran has also quickly completed the installation of seven cascades that were either not finished or at a very early stage of installation on Aug. 31.
