In 2009 the controversy over the scope and nature of Iran’s nuclear activities intensified with the revelation that Iran was building a previously undeclared uranium enrichment plant. In September Iran sent a letter to the IAEA Director General, Mohamed ElBaradei, informing the agency that Iran was building a second pilot enrichment facility, in addition to the one located at Natanz, to produce low-enriched uranium (LEU) for use as nuclear fuel.29 The letter was sent to the IAEA shortly before US President Obama, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown convened a joint press conference to announce that Iran was building an undeclared enrichment plant and that their countries had been aware of the site for some time.30
