Iran does not need to produce 60 percent enriched uranium, the country`s nuclear chief Ali-Akbar Salehi said.
Anti-nuclear activists said Mamata Banerjee took "bold and courageous stand" against the Haripur nuclear project in West Bengal.
Days after India`s nuclear operator started loading enriched uranium fuel in the first reactor of the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project, hundreds of fishermen on Saturday laid siege to the Tuticorin Port.
A tense situation prevailed as over 1,000 anti-nuclear protesters made a vain bid to lay a siege to Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant.
Currently, Tehran possesses 20-percent-enriched uranium which can be turned into 90-percent highly-enriched, enough for producing a nuclear bomb.
The West accuses Iran of pursuing a secret nuclear weapons programme but Tehran insists it needs nuclear power to generate electricity.
Ukrainian Prez has vowed to get rid of highly enriched uranium by April 2012.
The chief of the United Nations` nuclear watchdog said on Friday he hoped for an agreement with Iran on an offer to send enriched uranium abroad for further processing before the end of the year.
