Hojjatoleslam Seyyed Mehdi Mousavi Nejad who is one of the lawmakers indorsing the draft to order the government increase its uranium enrichment level to 60 percent in interview with Tasnim said "Prior to this, 100 lawmakers had signed the ‘draft obliging government to 60 percent uranium enrichment’. But right now the number of the signatory has increased to 200 and the number is going up.”

He further stated that the draft has been given to the Majlis Speaker for further considerations.
