Tehran, Iran, Feb. 14 – Iran confirmed on Tuesday that it had begun uranium enrichment at its nuclear installation in Natanz.

Senior Iranian nuclear negotiator Javad Vaeidi said in Tehran that Iran had resumed enriching uranium based on a directive issued by hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

“This action has been carried out on the orders of the president”, Vaeidi said, adding that more time was needed before “industrial-scale” enrichment could be resumed.

“Iran is prepared to find a formula” to clear up claims that it was seeking to divert its nuclear work for non-peaceful purposes. “But we insist on enriching uranium on Iranian soil”, he said.

“The West knows that if Iran obtains new nuclear technology, then along with its resources, it will take a strategic leap”.
