Iran says it is able to resume production of 20% enriched uranium in 2 days

DUBAI, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Iran is capable of resuming production of 20% enriched uranium within two days, the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Tuesday.

"If Iran decides, it can have 20% enriched fuel within one to two days," Fars news agency quoted Kamalvandi as saying.

Enriching uranium up to 20% purity is considered an important intermediate stage on the path to obtaining the 90% pure fissile uranium needed for a bomb. (Reporting by Tuqa Khalid)
