Iran will be able to enrich uranium even in the event of a military attack on its nuclear facilities, Reuters quoted Teheran's envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency as saying in Moscow on Thursday.

"We are faced with a very serious threat and so we have had to take measures to protect our facilities. We have provided for another facility in Fardo near Qom," Ali Asghar Soltanieh said.

"It is, so to speak, a reserve facility, so that if a site is attacked, we can continue the enrichment process," he added.
