PARIS - France condemned on Tuesday Iran's announcement that it was installing new uranium enrichment machines to speed progress in its nuclear program, calling it a "clear provocation".
The comments came after an Iranian official appeared to confirm a Reuters story last week that Iran was installing two newer and more advanced models of the centrifuges used to refine uranium for large-scale testing.
"Iran has just given into another provocation by announcing the imminent installation of next generation centrifuges," the French Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
"This is a new violation of six Security Council resolutions and 10 resolutions by the council of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency."
