A report by the United Nations Nuclear Watchdog states that Iran continues to store low-enriched uranium beyond its 2015 nuclear-level limits, the Associated Press reported Friday.
The International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) confidential report, the AP had seen Iran enrich uranium at a concentration of up to 4.5 percent of the uranium-235 isotope, over the 3.67 percent that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The Iranian low enriched uranium inventory was 241.6 kilograms (532.64 pounds) on 19 August. The JCPOA cap is 202.8 (447.1 pounds). Kilograms of enriched uranium.
The supply consists of 216.5 kilograms of uranium, enriched with 3.67 percent, and 25.1 kilograms of uranium, enriched with 4.5 percent.
In the previous IAEA q Iran installed up to 33 IR-6 centrifuges used for uranium enrichment and said that 10 have now been tested. Under the nuclear agreement, Iran will not be allowed to test more than 30 IR-6s if the agreement has existed for eight and a half years. The agreement is cloudy with regard to the limits before this date, which will arrive in 2023.
