The head of Iran’s atomic agency announced Wednesday that his country has completed a factory capable of producing enough rotors for up to 60 centrifuges per day, as the fate of the 2015 nuclear deal remains unclear and tensions persist with Washington. “Now that [Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei] has given the order, this factory has started all of its work,” said Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Islamic Republic’s Atomic Energy Organization, Reuters reported. According to Salehi, the factory itself does not break with the terms of the nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). He also explained that the new factory has the capacity to construct rotors for up to 60 IR-6 centrifuges each day.
