Iran OKs building 10 new enrichment plants

Posted: November 29, 2009 in Uncategorized

TEHRAN – Iran’s government announced plans on Sunday to build 10 new uranium enrichment plants and said work would start within two months, state media reported.

The development was likely to further strain relations with Western powers, which suspect that the Islamic republic seeks to develop nuclear bombs, a charge Tehran denies.

The plan would be a dramatic expansion of the program in defiance of U.N. demands it halt enrichment.
