The Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Fereidoun Abbasi, said this week that Iran is completing its nuclear activities, the Fars news agency reported.
Asked about recent media reports on Iran's new centrifuges in the Fordow uranium enrichment facility, Abbasi told reporters at the end of a cabinet meeting in Tehran on Wednesday that Iran is completing its nuclear activities as scheduled regardless of the negative western media speculations and reports.
"We are doing our job according to our specified timeline and we are accomplishing them. Our response to such reports is working harder," Abbasi was quoted as having said.
His remarks came a week after Western diplomats said that it appears as though Tehran is in its final stages of placing centrifuges at Fordow.
The diplomats noted that for some unknown reason the new centrifuges have not yet been activated. They added that they received indications that Iran has placed 640 centrifuges out of the 2,800 that were supposed to be installed in the Fordow facility.

Both houses of Congress, the outgoing and incoming presidents, most of the Supreme court, and the eyes of the whole world will all be on the exact same
Great; the Sec of Ag will become President.
Philadelphia would make a peachy new Capital.
I’d go with something closer to the center of the country.
Maybe the Kansas/Colorado/Nebraska corner, or the tip of the Oklahoma panhandle?
Location chosen to be marginally more defensible, and more to the point, to be in “flyover” country, in the hopes that people who hate ordinary Americans stay the heck out of government!
(Wouldn’t Atlanta be “peachy”, with Philly being more “cheese steaky”?)...
We might luck out, we might get the Great Lakes Czar...</Richter scale sarcasm>
“Location chosen to be marginally more defensible, and more to the point, to be in flyover country, in the hopes that people who hate ordinary Americans stay the heck out of government!”
All that would do would be spread the disease. Best take something with history behind it that’s already infected with Beltway-itis, urban blight and high crime, and leave those good ordinary Americans in “flyover country” in peace. Philadelphia was where the Declaration of Independence was signed, where Ben Franklin had his print shop, and it also served as the Capitol before Washington DC was selected. It’s where it all began. Besides, Harry Turtledove makes it into the working Capitol during times of war with the CSA. He’s an awful writer, but an ok historian, so I follow his suggestion. But you’re right. Cheese Steaky it is.
Barbara Streisand.It's a delaying tactic.
I got an excellent bilingual pun a few days ago myself.
The nice young Hispanic bank teller and I got to talking about her Hallowe’en earrings.
Someone had objected because they were devils, and as she pointed out, they were not devils, they were skulls.
“What’s wrong with that,” she asks, “we all have skulls under the flesh.”
I looked her in the eye and said “If you seso”.
She got the most horrified look as her mind went from skulls to brains to cannibalism to beef brains and back.
Then she got this big grin and said that was horrible!
Made my day...
Why does the Capital have to be a fixed city? Maybe we could force it to move every few years (torches and pitchforks?)
So, Soros is tsorus?
A combo of that and sore ass.
Now there’s an idea. It would have to move through rural districts to make sure there were enough pitchforks, though. But Queen Isabella used to move her court regularly to keep from being a burden on any one fiefdom, and she was a very popular Queen.
Mouse over the features.
That tuchas by surprise...
