Iran has produced 40kg of 20-percent fuel: Soltanieh

Iranian ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Ali Asghar Soltanieh said the country has produced some 40 kg of 20-percent enriched uranium, ISNA reported.

"Today Iran has enriched uranium to the purity of 20 percent and the amount totals 40 kg. We have managed to produce fuel rod and sheath despite propaganda against Iran," Soltanieh told a press conference on Sunday night.

"We continue to enrich fuel with the purity of 20 percent and if they (the Vienna Group) are ready for fuel swap, we are ready to do so according to Tehran declaration."

He reiterated that Iran would produce required 20 percent enriched fuel by next September and added, "I declared last week in Paris that we would not need talks for fuel swap if we would make fuel for Tehran reactor on our own. They (the Vienna Group) should not lose time and they must return to table of talks in Vienna under the IAEA control."

Representatives of international organizations invited to Iran visited the country's Natanz's nuclear facilities and Arak heavy water reactor on Saturday and Sunday.

The guests involved representatives and presidents of Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) troika which includes Iran, Egypt and Cuba, Group of 77, the Arab League and Venezuelan and Syrian ambassadors to the (IAEA).

Soltanieh Soltanieh also dismissed reports on threatening nature of nuclear visit by international delegations and reiterated that none of the international envoys took photographs during visits and they toured what had been regularly toured by the IAEA inspectors.

"The IAEA inspections are more meticulous and time-consuming comparing to visits of the international delegation and I dismiss that the inspections have security aftermaths for Iran."

"The inspections guarantee further security for Iran's nuclear facilities," Soltanieh said adding the invited envoys are to present their reports to their related organizations.

"The measure not only is a document for further support of Iran's nuclear activity, but also it guarantees Iran's nuclear facilities further since we have witness that Zionist regime and administration of George W. Bush (former US President) have posed military threats against the installations."

The Iranian ambassador to the IAEA also added, "the group of 77 is to pursue assassination of Iranian scientists under the IAEA framework."

Soltanieh dismissed reports that Iran has given an ultimatum that the invitation is the last step for transparency and said, "there has been no such an ultimatum and I reject it. Those who failed to participate in the process have apologized."
