Iran’s president has said that he loves a centrifugal pumps that can produce a big surge of steam when it is running.
Khalil Mashaei, in an interview with the English-language Tasnim news agency on Saturday, said that the Iranians would not stop producing centrifugal units after the United States said it would stop providing it with US-supplied centrifugal power.
“The American side has been very helpful, and the Iranians have been very patient and patient with us,” Mashaeid said.
“They are ready to give up the centrifugal unit, so we will not stop the production of centrifugal systems.”
We will continue with centrifugal pumping, and I have already promised this to the American side,” Mashadei added.
The president, who is a nuclear negotiator, also said that Iran would continue to produce uranium enrichment equipment.
Iran is believed to have the world’s fourth largest stockpile of uranium, and it has been pursuing a programme to enrich uranium using centrifuges.
In an interview last year, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said he hoped Iran would be able to enrich more than enough uranium to be a world power by 2040.
Iranian officials say that the country has not yet finished producing enough uranium.
