Tehran, YJC. Senior lawmaker says 190 thousand SWUs enrichment is the least Iran could comply to.

Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee of the Majlis of the Islamic Republic of Iran has warned that should the Six Majors deny Iran the right to enrich its basic 190 thousand SWUs of uranium, the country will forget all about agreements and resume its currently suspended 20-pct enrichment.

Tasnim news agency reports that Alaeddin Boroujerdi pointed to ayatollah Khamenei’s recent speech and said "By outlining the general limits of Iran’s nuclear needs, the Supreme Leader in fact provided a decisive answer to the excessive demands of the P5+1.”

"What the Supreme Leader said about Iran needing 190 thousand SWUs is in fact the most basic demand that Iran would make in the nuclear negotiations. Iran naturally needs more than 190 thousand SWUs, but is content with that amount,” the lawmaker added.

Pointing out that a Majlis bill obliges the government to provide 20 thousand MW nuclear electricity from the Bushehr power plant, the Boroujerd representative to the Majlis maintained "That amount of electricity from the Bushehr power plant takes a considerable number of centrifuges which must be mentioned in the negotiations.”

He added "They saying that we have to take some of our activities out of Fordo to other sites is so ridiculous, nonsensical, and unacceptable. They know that Fordo is highly secure, that is why they have grown sensitive about this site.”

"If the P5+1 disregard Iran’s rights, rejecting needs such as the procurement of 190 thousand SWUs enriched uranium, we will quickly go back to our past activities, the most important of which is to resume the 20-pct enrichment,” Head of the National Security and Foreign Policy Committee asserted.
