Iran's Nuke Chief Says the Country is Develop New Centrifuges For Uranium Enrichment

Under a landmark nuclear deal reached last month in Geneva, Iran promised not to bring new centrifuges into operation for six months, part of temporary limitations on its uranium enrichment program in return for the easing of some sanctions. But the deal does not stop it from developing centrifuges.
