The International Atomic Energy Agency has warned against the expansion of uranium beyond the highly enriched threshold of 20 percent purity by Iran. With the addition of 20 percent to the previous limit of enriching uranium to 60 percent, Iran is very close to weapon-grade uranium. "We agreed that there would be a high-level discussion, and this has not materialised yet," IAEA chief Raffael Gross said.
