TEHRAN, Nov. 23 (Xinhua) -- Iran on Tuesday rejected the reports that it has halted uranium enrichment activities and said that it will produce high-grade nuclear fuel for the Tehran reactor in September 2011.

In an interview with the official IRNA news agency on Tuesday, Ali-Akbar Salehi, head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) , said the reports are "unfounded news fabricated by western media and press."

Such false news ahead of the talks with the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany (G5+1) are for propagandistic purposes, he said.

In its future nuclear movement, Iran will never listen to any unfounded news fabricated by western media, he was quoted as saying.

According to some recent media reports, Iran has faced technical problems in running its centrifuges used for nuclear enrichment.

Earlier on Tuesday, Salehi said that Iran has frustrated the enemies over viral Stuxnet attack on its nuclear plant system aimed to break down its nuclear program.

"The Stuxnet virus penetrated the (nuclear) plant one and a half years ago ... (but) the nuclear researchers of the country have blocked the virus," he was quoted by the semi-official Mehr news agency as saying.
