Ali Akbar Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), announced on April 3 that Iran had produced 50 kilograms of uranium enriched to 20 percent. A law passed by Iran's parliament requires the AEOI to amass a total of 120 kilograms of uranium enriched to that level. Iran's mission to the United Nations said on March 29 that the country will only halt enrichment of uranium to 20 percent when the United States lifts economic sanctions.
