U.S.: Iran's Natanz Upgrade is Provocative

The White House said on Thursday that Iran's decision to install faster and more advanced centrifuges in the uranium enrichment facility in Natanz is a provocative step and a violation of UN resolutions against Tehran's nuclear program.

Iran informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of its intentions last week. White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that the move is not surprising and it will increase Iran's isolation in the international community.
