Iran Produced First Batch Of 60% Enriched Uranium At Natanz Facility

File image

Iranian scientists have produced the first batch of 60% enriched uranium, Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf, Speaker of the Iranian Parliament, announced on April 16.

“I am proud to announce that at 00:40 last night … young and pious Iranian scientists were able to obtain a 60% enriched uranium product,” Qalibaf wrote in a Persian tweet on Friday. “We congratulate the brave people of the Islamic Iran on this success; the will of the Iranian people is miraculous and will thwart any conspiracy.”

Earlier this week, Iran informed the International Atomic Energy Agency that it will start 60% uranium enrichment at the Natanz fuel enrichment plant (FEP). 1,000 advanced centrifuge machines were installed in the plant under the plan.

The Iranian step was a response to an act of sabotage that targeted the Natanz FEP on April 11. Israel was reportedly behind the incident. The incident was widely seen as an attempt to hinder the ongoing talks between Iran and the US in Vienna.

60% uranium is used to make a variety of radiopharmaceuticals. A day earlier, President Hassan Rouhani stressed, yet again, that Iran is not looking for a nuclear bomb. The president noted that Iran could enrich uranium to 90% if it chose to.

The new Iranian move will place more pressure on the US, which is still hesitant to return to the 2015 nuclear deal and left the sanctions imposed during the Trump administration off Iran.

          4. Just Me says:

            But, but, BUTT, the mighty Zionist super roach was supposed to expel Iran from Syria a decade ago and “destroy” Iran’s nuclear program. ROFLMAO. WHAT HAPPENED?

          5. tzatz says:

        3. Frank says:

          Frankly, you are a parasite living in Canada and pushing the same old hasbara cowardly diaper hasbara nonsense every day. Iran whacked the Zionists and there is nothing the scum can do .

        4. Just Me says:

          Now you Zionist scum have turned on India as well lol

          1. tzatz says:

            I’ve turned on ashok verma …. India is fine

      2. Simon Ndiritu says:

        Biden Never mentioned it in his address earlier, including the bodycam expose’ showing gruesome murder of Latino kid by police. Therefore, we can assume its normal and acceptable there. They should keep it up and we should at-least wish them well;

        1. Arch Bungle says:

          I’ll start feeling empathy for gunned down Americans when they start dying in numbers Iraqis, Yemenis and Somalis die.

        2. Frank says:

          US is a failed state of violent, racist, insane gun toting cowards. Now the cesspool is imploring after the Jews ruined it with endless lost wars.

      3. Ahson says:

        There are several mass shootings everyday now…….the US society is visibly collapsing, just like their economy. It’ll only get a lot worse.

        1. Frank says:

          US is bankrupt and full of hate. The Jew parasites got it involved in losing wars and plundered its deadbeat economy. Power has shifted to China as the US morons lost war after war and the average brainwashed redneck was literally put in the doghouse of poverty. The US is technically a failed state where over half the wretched population lives in abject poverty, jobless, homeless and hopeless.

          1. Ahson says:

            This shooter was a 19 year old hillbilly kid. He’s shot more than 40 people. 10 are already dead, mostly sikhs that worked the graveyard shift in that fedex facility. Many more will die over the next few days, but the additional deaths won’t be reported.

          2. Just Me says:

            Even though the Hindus kiss Ameriswine A$$, the racist rednecks keep on killing them, same for Sikhs who with their turbans have borne the brunt of racist attacks in the violent US sh1thole. There have been 54 mass shootings in the last month alone. US is a disgusting basketcase.

          3. Ahson says:

            5 of the dead and a dozen seriously injured thus far are sikhs…….mostly middle aged desperate indian immigrants. They’d a been alive had they stayed back in India. And you are on da money on the number of mass shooting incidents. Since 2018, there have been more mass shootings than the number of days in a year. An exponential rise! It’s getting scary.

        2. Frank says:

          The future has landed for sure….

    2. tzatz says:

      Nothing like the ‘cold shower’ that awaits Iran

      1. Frank says:

        Nah, the Zionist entity in occupied Palestine is on stolen land and borrowed time.
        The future has landed.

        1. Arch Bungle says:

          ‘israel’ will be gone in 9 years.

    3. Frank says:

      Iran wiped out the entire Zionist cowards Iraq operation in one smooth hit. The future has landed in Arbil.

  2. <> says:

    Well then, I’ve warned the Iranian guys here that if the mullahs would do it then we will respond as it is a direct threat against our country. What a foolish mistake, i wonder if they even realize what they have done.
    Get ready for a war.

    1. miss_helen_stillburn says:

      Its going well so far: Ten Israeli intelligence officers were killed or injured in the
      alleged attack on an information and operation center of the Mossad in
      Iraq’s Erbil, Iraqi sources reported on April 14.


      1. tzatz says:

        BS … info from an Iranian news site

        Deluded FAKE NEWS to cheer up the IRGC cadres who are now stunned at their own incompetence

      2. <> says:

        1st – it’s fake news.
        2nd – That action has just ended diplomacy.

        1. Ricky Miller says:

          Oh, please. Israeli diplomacy self-ended when the IDF began murdering Palestinian children, like the little boy who died next to his father, crouched low trying to make his five year old frame as small as possible as Israeli bullets found their mark, ending any threat he and his unarmed father posed to Israeli “Security.”

          From a noble people, worthy of admiration and respect, to a country filled with abusers, who use national security as an excuse to chuck out their moral compass and kill; mostly people who are beaten and poor.

        2. miss_helen_stillburn says:

          Its one or the other. Not both.

          1. <> says:

            The action of enriching Uranium.

      3. Arch Bungle says:

        10 less useless eaters.

    2. Lazy Gamer says:

      Too late for that now. Thats the announced batch. I figure they already have more than that way earlier. They have been poking the US for so long that their confidence must come from somewhere. Israel on the other hand has been trying its very best to antagonize Iran. lol
      If anything, war has been postponed till the next missile defense technological breakthrough or till someone develops mountain obliterating warheads.

      1. <> says:

        You won’t have to wait very long, this Sunday things will be clearer.

    3. Helen4Yemen says:

      It is your country as Kenya was the country of the British or
      Algeria of the French.

  3. Emad Irani says:

    Nice message to the west that Iran is able to enrich 90% uranium in just one day although this is just government controlled program under the watch of IAEA inspectors who are US spies. The military program is completely different

    1. tzatz says:

      Like Saddam Hussein … attempting to be ‘tricky’ with his WMD program … Iran is being ‘tricky’ … eh?

      • government program
      • military program

      The IAEA must KNOW about all the nuclear sites otherwise Iran is NOT COMPLYING …. they’re CHEATING … using the IAEA for cover … hello?

      The prognosis is clear … the results will be as well


      1. Emad Irani says:

        IAEA can smell our shit, if you want you can do it too, free for all.

        We don’t obey child killers. You are too little.
        Saddam was also an US puppet and like always US did a strategic mistake by removing him from power so Iran filled the vacuum in Iraq, same in Afghanistan soon…

        1. tzatz says:

          Humpty Dumpty was big as well … lol

          Muslim countries can’t be invaded … muslims aren’t worth the effort … just bomb the sh Xt out of them and their infrastructure … leave them in the
          sh Xt hole … they won’t know the difference anyways … lol

      2. Ahson says:

        Iran is not Iraq mister. Big daddy US is hesitant to act, what to speak of little ol Israel no? I believe once Raeisi becomes SL, with Qalibaf as our PM, Iran will start cold tests, politics permitting. The ICBM has long been completed.

        1. tzatz says:

          Cool … expect a sudden and devastating attack … eh?

          Israel has built a 4-tier anti-missile defensive system … IAF with 50 F-35’s capable of 1000’s of missionscper day / Ballistic Missiles / Submarines equipped with multi-warhead cruise missiles … the best in drone warfare … eh?

          No warning …

          1. Ricky Miller says:

            Any multi-tier Surface to Air Missile System can be beaten, especially in the realm of nuclear warfare. If an attacking force detonates a 250kt+ device at 5000 meters altitude near the Israeli border then your entire defense will be blind for a few minutes.
            Forty five seconds later, warheads traveling at hypersonic speeds drop in near to the turbulence area. But can you get a weapons quality track on any of them? Nope. Between the difficult optical and thermal environment, and the EMP, the next warheads walk right up to the Knesset front door and knock. Loudly.
            Deterrence only works if a nuclear armed state declines to use their strategic arsenal as a club with which to threaten others and throw temper tantrums. But engaging in atomic brinkmanship and threats only provides incentive for other countries to build bigger and better arsenals and delivery systems.

            It works the exact opposite of the way you want it to.

            (BTW) The F-35 is a lemon. You can use them for low intensity strikes at a medium tempo pace but as a USAF General says today, they cannot be used in sustained warfare against a near peer competitor. You can read his comments why at Military Watch Magazine in an article today titled: “Air Force General Warns F-35 Still Far From Ready For War: Problematic Jets Not Worth Including in War Plans.”

          2. tzatz says:

            Great news …. thanks for the information General … lol


          3. <> says:

            I wish it had not come to that tzatz, but the mullahs leave us no choice. israel can not risk having a fanatic regime with nuclear weapons that openly say they want us gone. If there is a thing called a justified war – then this is the one. Israelis stand united on this issue.

          4. tzatz says:

            Exactly …

            • ‘wipe Israel from the map’

            • weekly sermons on ‘death to Israel’

            • attempting to surround Israel with Iranian proxies with missiles

            • non-recognition of Israeli sovereignty

            • carrying on terror attacks on Jews in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Burgos, Bulgaria

            The vile Mullah Police State must be attacked to remove the WMB / Nuclear Program … further delay makes no sense

          5. <> says:

            I feel sorry for all the good people that will die on both sides, due to the mullahs foolish actions and stubbornness. i don’t see how we can avoid a war now, then so be it. If Iran counts on their proxies then they are into a big surprise, next war in Lebanon will not last a month.

          6. Ahson says:

            stop it doc……you need to focus on Pakistan no? your old hendu-pak enemy no?…..lol….leave camel jockey/ shyster/ guppu for Iran to handle. You’s no longer Iranian. Stop pretending.

    2. <> says:

      Then keep enriching it, you said you can destroy us in a day so you have nothign to worry about. Too bad millions of Iranian will pay the price for the stupidity of your leaders.

      1. Emad Irani says:

        bla bla bla if you could you would it 20 years ago not today which is a fragile situation for you.
        We have to defend ourselves because Jews believe they killed 75.000 Iranians. We learned from history (from your fake history :)

        1. <> says:

          Put the past aside Emad for a moment, look what your leadrers are doing. 60% is the same as 90% for us, and your leaders keep saying that they want us gone This is not bla bla bla at all Emad, as I’ve told you before we will act on our own if needed and now you leave us no choice. I hope you understand the destruction that is going to be unleashed in the region.

          1. Emad Irani says:

            No, history is very valuable and useful but I know, it hurts you…

            Our leaders didn’t say they will kill Jewish women and children. They said the Zionist regime will be destroyed and this is the same thing your wannabe fake countries are saying about Iran for 50 years (regime change plans). They also tried it with Syria but failed.

            We don’t care that 60% is the same thing as 90% for you, we have to defend ourselves because of bad experiences from the past :)

            Like I said, if you could start and win an all out war against Iran you would do it many years ago, 20 years ago, when Hezbollah was much weaker than today, when Iran had just very little military programs, when Ansarallah and Hashd al Shaabi and … didn’t exist…
            since 2000 Georg W Bush, Obama, Trump, Biden and … they all came and went without attacking Iran directly, US know why attacking would be a disaster…

          2. <> says:

            I guess time will tell, I can only deliver you the voices here and what is our state of mind. Such a shame it has come to this.

          3. Nucu says:

            it’s only the result of your agression in the region.

          4. Alekai Mordechai says:

            Have talked to an Iranian (claimed to be hard core Shia).

            After talking to him, I got the jist that Iran wants Netanyahu to be gone. And instead have some sort of liberal/ pro-iranian to come to power in israel.

            Given Bibi fight against left. My jist seems to match these facts.

          5. <> says:

            Bibi has been the mullahs best friend, he has done nothing to stop their nuclear program, on the contrary he has ruined the agreement and didn’t act like Olmert did when Syria tried to build a nuclear reactor. This Sunday a very important meeting will take place in Jerusalem, and it doesn’t happen very often. Expect escalation.

          6. Frank says:

            Lol, next…

          7. Frank says:

            Zionist regime is hot air and has been barking for 40 years while Iran becomes a nuclear power. Now the Zionist cowards are crapping in their diapers as they have been exposed as pathetic impotent pansies.

          8. Helen4Yemen says:

            Washington, October 10, 1973

            Nixon:There is a serious situation in the Middle East.
            It has developed into something tougher than the
            Israelis anticipated.

            Kissinger: The Israelis were caught with their pants down

            Nixon: The Israeli tank losses have been extremely heavy.
            We won’t violate the confidence by giving you figures, but
            they are far heavier than anticipated.

            Kissinger: If the Arabs start to win, all the Arabs will jump in.
            Israel has suffered the equivalent of 100,000 killed.

            Nixon: We will not let Israel go down the tube.


          9. Frank says:

            Frankly, you are a joke and every post has proved to be nonsense and teenage fantasy.

          10. Arch Bungle says:

            History is useless … to the Jew.
            Because History disproves their lies and exposes them as the nation of conmen they are.

        2. tzatz says:

          Killed 75,000 Iranians?

          By Jews?


        1. Ahson says:

          Heshmat Alavi, straight from the MKO propaganda outlet in Albania…….lol……tokhme sag!

        2. <> says:

          Hey Free Man, I hoped we wouldn’t come to that point. But if we don’t end the mullahs now, then the mullahs will end us. Sadly, I predict many Iranians will die in the coming war as well as Israelis. For us it is the most justified war, we won’t let another Hitler (Ali Khamenei) kill more Jews. The world can either support us or move from our way, we will do what we need on our own.

          1. Free man says:

            I think Israel should attack the leadership of the mullahs and the nuclear facilities. After all, every Iranian knows that the mossad can do whatever it wants in Iran.
            The Iranian people were taken captive by these zealous Islamists. Many Iranians love Israel.

          2. <> says:

            I know, that is why I feel sad innocent iranians may die because of the mullahs stupid actions against us. They knew is was our red line and they crossed it, I don’t think even Bibi now has a choice.

          3. Arch Bungle says:

            I agree. ‘israel’ should go ahead and attack as you say.
            The faster Tel Aviv gets wiped off the map, the better.

        3. Arch Bungle says:

          Do you think you could draw one for ‘israel’ too?
          Or, does your little peanut brain only have capacity for Iran?

          1. Free man says:

            “little peanut brain” – LOL. A reminder that the regime ruling Iran is run by such idiots :

  4. verner says:

    well add the missing percent and get the nukes to tip the missiles with and then finish off the jews in palestine – they have lived too long on borrowed time and it’s about time to extend the list of extinct species. now or at least as is possible.

    1. tzatz says:

      Says the vile nazi slug … here’s hoping Covid 19 brings you a long and painful death ….


      1. verner says:

        iran will make the world a favour when the nuke hitler’s successors off the map, for good. naziyahu has copied adolf step by step and today he is even worse than hitler although the world has yet to realize that fact. it will come and after that there will be no hesitancy in wiping the jews off the map.

        1. tzatz says:

          Your obsession must relate to the Pals … eh?

          Are your family victims of the Naqba? TFB

          What they wanted to do unto others … was done to them … full stop

          The Pals are finished …


  5. Boycott-Saudi!!! says:

    For the sake of the sane people just make that NUKES IRAN!

  6. ulzimun says:

    Iran is right up there with NK when it comes to strategic plan and execution and seldom makes mistakes. It is likely that the Natanz nuke facilities are just a show piece to be “negotiated,” but the real thing is deep under the ground. That is what NK has been doing for so long like show piece facilities in Youngbyun and the state of the art nuke facilities deep under the ground. Once it reaches 100 percent, Iran will become an official member of nuclear powers and all this BS will gone for good. What Iran needs to do after that is to launch an ICBM with a range of at least 10000 km.

  7. M Barbaria says:

    10% to 89% enrichment is Dirty Bomb materials??

  8. Arch Bungle says:

    You mean, even after an attack by Superjew they can still produce 60% enriched material?

    Superjew must have met his kryptonite!
