Iran installing new uranium centrifuges, says IAEA

TEHRAN. February 21. KAZINFORM Iran has begun installing advanced centrifuge machines for enriching uranium at its nuclear plant at Natanz, says the UN's nuclear watchdog.

The IAEA said it suspected Iran may have also held explosives tests relevant to nuclear weapons.

The step will concern world powers ahead of a resumption of talks with Tehran next week, analysts say.

Tehran has denied the accusation, and says it is refining uranium only for peaceful energy purposes.
