Iran 'produces own raw uranium'

Iran says it has delivered its first domestically produced raw uranium, or yellowcake, to a plant that can make it ready for enrichment.

The statement, from Iran's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi, comes the day before talks between Iran and world powers over its nuclear programme.

Enriched uranium can be used for fuel in reactors or made into nuclear bombs.

The US and its allies believe Iran may be trying to produce nuclear weapons, a claim denied by Iran.
