NICOSIA — Iran has asserted that the West accepted the use of Teheran’s latest gas centrifuge for the nation’s nuclear program.
Officials said the P5+1 approved Iran’s enhancement of its nuclear energy and research program. They said this included the testing and installation of advanced centrifuges for uranium enrichment.
“The [use of] new generation of centrifuges for research purposes was the most important remaining issue in the talks between Iran and the P5+1 in recent months,” Alaeddin Boroujerdi, chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said.
In an interview that appeared on the Iranian parliament’s website on Jan. 13, Boroujerdi said P5+1 accepted Teheran’s demand to install new-generation centrifuges during a session in Geneva, Switzerland on Jan. 12. He said this led to plans to implement the nuclear agreement, including a suspension of 20 percent uranium enrichment, on Jan. 20.
“Finally we finalized the agreement between us and the P5+1 on how to implement the first step of the joint plan of action, and the two sides came to a single interpretation on how to put the agreement into effect,” Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi said.
