All of Iran's nuclear activities are carried out under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohammad Eslami, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, was quoted by IRNA news agency as saying, Xinhua news agency reported.
The IAEA is officially informed about the design, implementation, and operation time of Iran's plans, he added.
However, Eslami expressed regret about the leakage of a confidential IAEA report on Iran's nuclear activity, urging the UN nuclear watchdog to "observe confidentiality considerations."
Western media reported on Monday that the third of three cascades, or clusters, of advanced IR-6 centrifuges recently installed at the Natanz establishment, has now come on stream.
The reported enrichment activity was implemented in line with Iran's strategic action plan, Eslami noted, referring to a counter-sanctions law passed by the Iranian parliament in December 2020 that enabled Iran to drop parts of its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Enrichment to 60% purity is one short, technical step away from weapons-grade levels of 90%. Nonproliferation experts have warned in recent months that Iran now has enough 60%-enriched uranium to reprocess into fuel for at least one nuclear bomb.
Iran has begun installing more advanced centrifuges and is moving towards producing enriched uranium with them even though that is forbidden under its nuclear deal with major powers, the UN nuclear watchdog said on Monday.
The UN nuclear watchdog said on Friday “Iran informed the agency of its intention to enrich uranium at a rate of up to 20 per cent in its Fordow underground plant, to comply with a law recently passed by the Iranian parliament.”
The mission members reviewed the legislative and regulatory infrastructure for Occupational Radiation Protection by visiting UAE government officials, including FANR, the UAE Space Agency and others.
