Iran producing roughly 15 kg a month of 20% enriched uranium -diplomat

Iran is producing roughly 15 kg (33 pounds) a month of uranium enriched to 20% purity at its underground Fordow plant, a senior diplomat said on Tuesday.

A recent Iranian law requires Tehran to produce 120 kg (265 pounds) a year of uranium enriched to 20%, a process that Iran started last month. That works out to about 10 kg a month.
