Iran lawmakers drafting law on nuclear enrichment hike
Iran's parliament has started to draft a law that would allow the country's nuclear scientists to intensify their uranium enrichment, a step that could complicate ongoing talks with world powers.

 

Hossein Naghavi Hosseini, committee spokesman in Tehran, told the ISNA news agency that draft legislation was underway.

 

"This bill will allow the government to continue enrichment, using new generation centrifuges," he said, referring to more modern machines that would speed up production.

 

"The parliament's nuclear committee is working on the technical issues and details of this draft," he added.
