Iran: "We will produce 20-percent enriched fuel whenever we need it"

IRNA – Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Tuesday that Iran will produce 20-percent enriched fuel whenever the country needs it.

Addressing domestic and foreign reporters at IRNA headquarters, he added that production of 20-percent enriched fuel is not always on the table, adding that whenever the countries need it the production line of the fuel would start working.

20-percent enriched fuel will be produced for specific uses, he said, adding that thanks God, the Islamic Republic has been successful in producing the fuel due to efforts made by its young scientists.

During past years, whenever Iran needed fuel for its Tehran research reactor, it had called on other states to produce the material, Mottaki said.
