Another warning: Cleric warns Iran pursues further uranium enrichment to 50%

Reza Taqavi, a close aide to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was quoted yesterday (Saturday) stating that “Iran is now capable of enriching uranium at a 20 per cent level, but if they (world powers) continue their pressure, we will increase enrichment levels to 56 per cent.” This statement is another proof that Khamenei’s regime has full intentions of further enrichment, and that previous claims about religious and cultural reasons to avoid development of nuclear weapons cannot be relied on. While the world demands clarifications and immediate halt in the 20% enrichment process, it seems that the government will not hesitate to proceed – And that the decision is not an economic- But rather a political one.
