Tehran, Iran, Oct. 27 – Iran has injected uranium UF6 gas into a second batch of nuclear centrifuges, the state-run news agency ISNA quoted an unnamed official as announcing on Friday.

“Iran’s second cascade was installed two weeks ago. The injection of gas was carried out this week”, the official was quoted as saying.

“Currently, we have obtained the product of the second cascade”, the official said.

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency told the New York Times on Monday that Tehran had set up a second cascade of 164 centrifuges, the devices that spin at high speed and turn ordinary uranium into a fuel usable for nuclear power plants — or, at higher enrichment levels, nuclear weapons.

The United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1696 on July 31 demanding that Tehran suspend all its uranium enrichment activities by August 31 or face the threat of sanctions. Tehran missed that deadline.

The council is currently deliberating a tougher resolution which would impose mild sanctions against Tehran.
