ISTANBUL, 07 APR – Since the beginning of this year, Iran has produced 55 kg of uranium enriched at 20%. This was announced by the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Agency of Tehran, Behrouz Kamalvandi, in the aftermath of the launch in Vienna of the latest talks on the possible return of the United States to the 2015 nuclear agreement, which includes among other things for the Islamic Republic the maximum limit of uranium enrichment at 3.67%. The announced quantity is higher than that foreseen under the Iranian law – issued in retaliation for the US withdrawal from the agreement -, which indicates an average production threshold of 10 kg per month. According to the spokesperson, the annual target set at 120 kg could be reached by August. According to the latest quarterly report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (Aiea), as of February 16 Tehran had produced 17.6 kg of uranium enriched at 20%. However, the threshold is still significantly below the 90% required to get to the atomic bomb, which Iran has always denied it wants. (HANDLE).
