TEHRAN, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, Ali Akbar Salehi, said Thursday that Iran will not renounce its right to enrich uranium to higher levels, the state IRIB television reported.
"Enrichment to 5 percent is the highest level that we want for our reactors. But that does not mean that we will renounce our right to enrich uranium level to a higher level" Salehi was quoted as saying.
"Tehran will not give up its undeniable rights (to enrich uranium to higher levels)," Salehi told reporters.
"There is actually no need for us to enrich uranium to more than 4 or 5 percent purity as the reactors that we use need uranium enriched to a maximum of 5 percent," he said, adding that "Iran has the capability to enrich uranium to 20 percent but prefers to obtain the fuel from abroad.">>>
