Iranian Prez OKs sites for new enrichment plants: Aide
Tehran: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has approved sites for new uranium enrichment plants in Iran, a close aide of the hardliner told the ILNA news agency on Monday.
"The President has approved the locations of the new nuclear sites," Ahmadinejad`s senior adviser Mojtaba Samareh Hashemi said.
"The construction process at these sites will start with his order."
In November 2009, Ahmadinejad announced that Iran would build 10 new uranium enrichment plants after Tehran was censured by the UN nuclear watchdog for constructing its second such facility near the Shiite shrine city of Qom.
Iran currently enriches uranium at a plant in the central city of Natanz in defiance of repeated UN Security Council ultimatums to suspend the sensitive process.
