Plan to Unveil Nuclear Achievements

Iran will announce "good news" about a series of its post-JCPOA nuclear achievements in April. Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, made the statement during a press conference in Qom on Monday, Press TV reported. Iran and major powers reached a landmark nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, in July 2015. The agreement came into effect in January last year. Under the pact, Iran agreed to limit its atomic program in exchange for sanctions relief. Salehi warned that if any party to the accord violated its terms, Iran would boost its uranium enrichment by over tenfold. "Before the JCPOA, our enrichment capacity was at 9,000 SWUs [separative work units] and we had 10,000 SWUs that were not operational. We can in a year and a half increase the 9,000 active SWUs to 100,000 active SWUs," he said.
