VIENNA – Iran has produced up to two tons of uranium gas that can be used to make nuclear weapons, but this amount is not enough to make a bomb, UN nuclear watchdog chief Mohamed ElBaradei told journalists Monday.

ElBaradei said the amount of uranium hexafluoride (UF6) produced by Iran prior to a ban of uranium enrichment activites that began Monday was “probably a maximum of two tons.”

An IAEA official said this was enough for “15 percent of a significant amount,” that is 15 percent of the highly enriched uranium, which is made from UF6, needed to make an atomic bomb.
