An Iranian official says the country has so far produced over 50 kilograms of 20-percent enriched uranium and still needs to speed up the production.

Iran's permanent representative to the IAEA Ali-Asghar Soltanieh, said that the recent plan to speed up production of the uranium is aimed at providing fuel for a Tehran research reactor. He also said the Iranian parliament has passed a bill for building more nuclear power plants in the country.

Iran announced Wednesday that the country will triple its 20 percent uranium enrichment output. It blames the Vienna group for failing to provide the uranium for the Tehran research reactor and said that the IAEA has lost its chance.
