Iran's nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, indicated that a centrifuge facility at Natanz "is just a preparation... in case Iran decides to start producing in mass production such [more advanced] centrifuges, [we] would be ready for that". Salehi also remarked that "if we have to go back and withdraw from the nuclear deal, we certainly do not go back to where we were before", and warned of "harsh" consequences if Iran's nuclear scientists are once again subjected to an assassination campaign.
