Iran`s nuke programme will continue: Ahmadinejad

Iran will continue to produce 20-percent enriched uranium, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday.



Tehran: Iran will continue to produce 20-percent enriched uranium, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday.

He also said that Iran will stop producing it if other countries supply the material, Xinhua reported. He said the fuel is needed at a medicine plant.

"So far there has been nobody to provide the fuel," Ahmadinejad told reporters.

Meanwhile, an Iranian lawmaker said Tuesday that Iran would produce 60 percent enriched uranium if negotiations with major world powers prove ineffective.

The US and its Western nations suspect Iran is trying to make atomic weapons in the garb of a civilian nuclear programme. Tehran says it is only for peaceful purpose.
