According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, Iran has doubled the number of uranium-enrichment machines it has in Fordow, an underground bunker, "showing Tehran's defiance towards Western pressure to stop its atomic work." The IAEA said that the number of enrichment centrifuges at Fordow more than doubled to 2,140 from 1,064 in May. Meanwhile, on Thursday, Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei insisted his country has no interest in nuclear weapons, but will not stop pursuing nuclear energy for peaceful means.
