Iran's enhance uranium stockpile to surpass 300 kg

"Today the countdown to pass the 300 kilograms reserve of enhance uranium has started and in 10 days time we will pass this limit," Behrouz Kamalvandi told reporters at the Arak heavy water reactor facility Monday.

Iran may also increase uranium enrichment to up to 20 percent for use in local reactors, he said. The 2015 nuclear accord caps the level of purity to which Iran can enrich uranium at 3.67 percent.
