Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Gholam-Reza Aqazadeh said here Tuesday Iran has produced uranium enriched to 3.5 percent in its Natanz facility thanks to the efforts of its young talented experts.

This has paved the way for the country to carry out uranium enrichment on industrial scale, he said in a report on Iran's nuclear activities.

Aqazadeh expressed hope that an uranium enrichment complex with a capacity of 3000 tons will come on stream by the end of the current Iranian year (March 20, 2007).
