Iran's announcement that it is starting production of 20%-enriched uranium creates doubts about the peaceful nature of the country's nuclear program Russia's security chief Nikolai Patrushev said on Tuesday.

Iran's announcement that it is starting production of 20%-enriched uranium creates doubts about the peaceful nature of the country's nuclear program Russia's security chief Nikolai Patrushev said on Tuesday.

"Iran declares that it is not seeking nuclear weapons and is developing peaceful nuclear technologies. But its actions, including the recent announcement that it started to further enrich uranium to 20%, raise concerns among other states, and these doubts are reasonable," the secretary of Russia's Security Council said.

Patrushev's remarks were the first reaction from Moscow to Iran's announcement it was starting to higher-grade uranium enrichment.
