A report released by “The Nuclear Iran” website said the country has “finalized production of the 20-percent-enriched fuel for the Tehran research reactor” thanks to the efforts made by a number of Iranian nuclear scientists and through relying on home grown know-how and technology.

The achievement came while the western states refrained from supplying nuclear fuel to Iran in a violation of their NPT (Non-Proliferation Treaty) undertakings.

On Thursday, Vice-Speaker of the Iranian Parliament Mohammad Reza Bahonar had said that the 20-percent-enriched fuel would be ready for injection into the Tehran research reactor in two months.

Late in October, Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi said “around 70 kilograms of (20-percent-enriched) uranium had been produced in Iran” by then, according to the latest inventory report he had seen, dating from September.
