Iran needs 7900 IR-8 Centrifuges to meet Ayatollah Khamenie’s demand

Today, Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran in an interview with Al-Alam, an Arabic news channel broadcasting from Iran, told that Iran has IR-8,  latest generation of centrifuges produced by Itself.

“Our IR-8 centrifuges can enrich 24 SWU. We have not fed UF6 gas into them, but mechanical tests are being done” Salehi added.

In July 2014, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei stated: “Our officials say we need 190,000 SWU. We might not need this [capacity] this year or in the next two or five years but this is our absolute need and we need to meet this need.” and his speech put a new red line in Iran & P5+1 negotiation.

Before this red line, P5+1 has suggested Iran to keep 5000 or some more for enrichment in about 20 years, But Ayatollah Khamenei set a margin in enrichment capacity: 190,000 SWU.

Capacity of Latest generation of Iran centrifuges, is 24 SWU and with a simple division, Iran needs about 7900 IR-8 centrifuges to reach SL red line.

“We have about 19000 centrifuges installed and about 9000 of them are working” Salehi told Al-Alam, but these are previous generations and Iran has a plan to renew them with new generation one. The plan has not become operational yet because Iran waiting for final result of negotiations with P5+1, but it could not be delayed more.


Attack on British Embassy Was Acting Against National Security

Iran is in a sensitive situation. It is not a joke! The treat of attacking Iran and Military option is being repeated time and again by foreign authorities. Many international organizations, which are founder by aggressive countries, are trying to find legitimate excuses to attack Iran. In fact, they are talking about military action but their ultimate goal is economic sanctions.

What is the best solution? On the one hand, the authorities reveal new military equipment and talking about military readiness in defending Iran. On the other hand, they are evaluating detention solutions.  These are Iran’s main policies to encounter:  Iron fist along with negotiation.

Nevertheless all these efforts, some people whom were called “University Students” attempted to occupy British embassy. Needless to say that, just days before Iranian Parliament decided to lower political interaction with Great Britain.

Surprisingly, no one stopped them. They could pass the barbed wire and fences easily. This brutal action happened while Islamic Republic of Iran was obliged to secure British embassy. Some years ago, Law Enforcement Forces of Islamic Republic of Iran proved its capability to secure embassies even under strongest attacks. However, unlike Iran’s International Commitment, Police stepped back and let this “spontaneous group” occupied a part of UK territory.

Occupation was not their mere goal. They advanced and stole the documents. (Is there any other proper verb for this action?) Although all embassies are permitted to have and use alcoholic drinks, they destroyed all and then they ruined all furniture. Continuing violent actions, paintings and walls were destroyed, glasses and windows were broken down. Even they used flammable objects to make a fire.

Their next step was releasing a statement. “It was just the beginning. We will do more feisty actions if necessary”

I thought a lot about “Feisty Actions” all I could imagine about these phrases was “assassinate”. I sincerely hope they are not going to do that.  InshAllah

Let us back to the beginning of this article. In these highly sensitive situation, is there any advantage over these strict actions? Isn’t this action acting against national security?  We should note that Iran’s Supreme Leader stressed not attack any other country.

So, I strongly condemn. I roundly condemn all people who involved. I condemn them for acting against national security.

I hope such unwise movements just going to result in international relations not more.


3 years ago I wrote this article a day after attacking on British  embassy and I still believe it. Although the situation is not as sensitive as before but I cannot dismiss the highly sensitive situation in Middle East.

It is over there years form closing the embassy. Many of Iranian residence whom travels regularly dealt with tough situation. It is time to eliminate such foolish movements!

Actually, it is time to reopening the embassy! How the process will be done?

Showing her willingness, British have its own weird policy toward Iran and as we know have an effective role in Euro. Desperate need of diplomatic relationship with Europe urged the Government to act.

I will write again soon.
