No Deal on Centrifuges

An informed foreign ministry source on Saturday denied the report that Iran is ready to reduce the number of its centrifuges to 7,000 to secure a final nuclear deal with the major powers. 

“So far no agreement has been made on the issues under negotiation,” the source said in reference to the ongoing talks between Iran and the major powers on a comprehensive deal to resolve the dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program, IRNA reported. 

Tehran’s future enrichment capacity is one the main sticking points in the talks on a final deal. The major powers would like the number of centrifuges that Iran would maintain to be in the low thousands, while Tehran says its needs a large enough capacity to be able to supply domestically produced nuclear fuel for its existing reactors.
