Iran has dramatically upped the stakes in the international standoff over its controversial nuclear programme.

The government approved plans to build 10 more uranium enrichment plants.

The move is a response to a demand made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN nuclear watchdog, for Iran to suspend all enrichment-related activities, and is in direct contravention of UN security council resolutions.

Al Jazeera’s Alireza Ronaghi reports.

  1. Iran is completely within its rights … Unfortunately when it comes to the Zionist establishment in the US and Israel this means nothing.

    Iran is making a strategic mistake. They will soon be isolated and vulnerable to an attack on their nuclear facilities, having ignored pleas from every ally and trading partner.

    The US is imploding and Israel is becoming the pariah of the world. Iran should back off and let nature take its course … but instead they forge forward into disaster.
