The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations' nuclear watchdog body, has confirmed that Iran has begun construction of an underground nuclear plant. IAEA inspectors also pointed out that Iran has also started stocking more of the less enriched uranium. However, he said that this quantity is not sufficient for the manufacture of weapons.


IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi said that at present it seems that Iran does not have enough uranium to make nuclear weapons. But it has started building a new site in central Isfahan province following the July bombings at the Natanj nuclear site. The atomic watchdog has detected this with the help of satellite images.


However, Grossi said that the process for making nuclear weapons has already been initiated and it will take time to find concrete evidence in this regard. He declined to give any further details about it.


Please tell that Iran had already said that it will develop a new site on the mountains surrounding the region after the July blast. Although the mission of Iran has not provided any response to the United Nations about the new revelations.
