In its turn, Tehran repeatedly denied that the Fordow facility was intended to produce weapons-grade uranium, saying that it was tasked only with producing low-enriched uranium
for power plants.
The three facilities are: The Low-Enriched Uranium
Core Research Reactor; The International Miniature Neutron Source Reactor Training Facility; and the Laboratory Building for the Radiological and Medical Sciences Research Institute.
The decision to ramp up uranium enrichment came less than a week after Iran acknowledged breaking the 300-kilogram limit on its low-enriched uranium

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- A former official at the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) lauded the government for exceeding the 300kg limit stated in the nuclear deal for the production of low-enriched uranium

Under terms of the nuclear deal, Iran can keep a stockpile of no more than 300kg (660lb) of low-enriched uranium
. Mr Kamalvandi said that given Iran's recent decision to quadruple its production of low-enriched uranium
, it would pass the 300kg limit on June 27.
Iran has already boosted low-enriched uranium
production as part of its limited exit from the deal.

and heavy water have increased since the start of the year.

and heavy water have increased since the start of the year, the UN atomic watchdog said Friday.
It will also bear the costs of importing and exporting low-enriched uranium
and the costs of payment of taxes, duties and charges.
