TEHRAN (ISNA)- Iran said that it would start and stop test of IR-5 centrifuges when 'necessary', rejecting the US State Department's report that it has ceased feeding gas to the machine.

'The machines are some of normal devices of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran whose tests started before conclusion of Geneva Deal and continued after the agreement,' said Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham.

The IR-5 machines have been tested since April based on research programs of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Afkham said.

She noted all of the reports released by the IAEA over last 7 month show that Iran has been abided by Geneva Deal, and that no case of breaching the agreement has been reported yet.

'The test of machines will be started and stopped when necessary.'
