IAEA report confirms Iran's 20 percent uranium enrichment, says no explanation given for undeclared nuclear particles
Iran has still not offered explanations for uranium material found at two of its nuclear plants last year, according to a new report by the UN's nuclear watchdog, potentially derailing renewed efforts to revive the nuclear deal.
The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) also says that Iran has produced 17.6 kg of uranium enriched to the 20 percent level – as the country had already announced – matching its target of 10 kg a month, according to Reuters.
Iran's hardline-led parliament passed a bill in December forcing the country to "produce and store 120kg per year of uranium enriched to 20 percent" if European signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal did not provide relief from US sanctions.
On Tuesday, IAEA chief Mariano Grossi told an event hosted by the US Nuclear Threat Initiative think-tank that Tehran needed to explain why nuclear material has been found at Iranian plants in "places where they shouldn't be."
