TEHRAN, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Iran has stopped enriching uranium to 20%, the Islamic Republic's News Agency (IRNA) said on Thursday.
“Tehran has stopped enriching uranium to a level of purity higher than 5 percent ”, IRNA quoted the spokesman for the national security and foreign policy parliamentary Commission (NSFP), Hossein Naghavi Hosseini. as saying. “Iran possesses a sufficient amount of 20%-enriched uranium for conversion into fuel for its medical research reactor in Tehran”.
The spokesman said, however, that in the future Tehran will independently make a decision whether it wants higher than 5%-enriched uranium.
“There is no point in discussing this issue right now because the process of enrichment has been stopped anyway”, he added.
The Western powers have repeatedly stated that in order to convince the world it has no intention to develop nuclear weapons Iran should stop enriching uranium to 20%, as well as to give more publicity to its nuclear programme and to reduce uranium stockpiles.
