Iran Produced 251 Pounds Of Highly Enriched Uranium - Official
MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 15th June, 2021) Iran has produced around 114 kilograms (251 Pounds) of highly enriched uranium in the past five months, Iranian government's spokesperson Ali Rabie said on Tuesday.
"The latest data shows that some 108 kilograms of 20%-enriched uranium has been produced since the law was adopted about five months ago," Rabie wrote on Telegram.
He added that a further 6.5 kilograms had been refined to 60% purity. Weapons-grade uranium is at least 90% enriched.
The law stipulates that Iran must produce 120 kilograms of 20%-enriched uranium a year, well above the 3.67% limit agreed under a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers. Iran demands that the United States return to compliance with the pact that it quit in 2018.
