Iran: We have 4,000 working centrifuges

An Iranian official said his country has 4,000 working centrifuges.

Deputy Foreign Minister Alireza Sheikh Attar said Friday that Iran has nearly 4,000 working centrifuges at its nuclear facility at Natanz and another 3,000 are being installed. Attar’s comments were made to Iranian state television and reported by the official Iranian news agency, IRNA, and Reuters.

The 4,000 figure is in line with U.N. estimates but lower than the 5,000 cited last month by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
