Iran still enriching uranium to 20 pct

10-26-2013 23:05 BJT

A senior Iranian lawmaker says the Islamic republic has not halted the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent purity. The remarks were made by the Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s national Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Alaeddin Boroujerdi.

The announcement was also meant to deny earlier assertions by another member of the committee who said that Iran had stopped the production of 20 percent enriched uranium temporarily.

The Iranian lawmaker added that during recent talks with the six negotiating powers in Geneva, Tehran had asked them to recognize its right to enrich uranium and remove sanctions.
