Еще. He also elaborated on Iran's increased nuclear capabilities within the framework of Joint Comprehensive plan of Action (JCPOA) «for R&D purposes». «We can roughly say that Natanz is now ready for 1 million SWUs [Separative work units],» said Salehi highlighting the new plant's increased nuclear energy production capabilities. SWUs are a measure unit of uranium enrichment capacity. «If we were to follow the natural trend, this could have been achieved in 7 to 8 years,» he added.
