Iranian official: We have produced 55 kg of 20% enriched uranium

Israel National News reports: “Iran has made 55 kg of uranium enriched to up to 20%, the point at which it is highly enriched, Iranian authorities said on Wednesday, according to Reuters.

The disclosure comes a day after Tehran and Washington held what they described as ‘constructive’ indirect talks in Vienna on Tuesday aimed at finding ways to revive a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers.

The move is in accordance with a law which required Iran to start enriching to 20% and stipulated that at least 120 kg (265 pounds) of uranium refined to that level be made each year, which amounts to 10 kg a month.

Iran’s production rate is already ‘up to 40%’ faster than that, Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Wednesday, according to Reuters…”
