Tehran, Jan 2, IRNA – Iran has sent a letter to its representative office in Vienna, Austria, to be presented to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about the production of 20% fuel, Iran's nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi announced in a TV program here in Tehran.

Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), made the remarks while speaking about start of producing 20-percent fuel.

The AEOI should follow Parliament's approval; he said, though in the meantime, the Government has issued guidelines about its implementation.

He further highlighted General Soleimani's effective role in helping Syria in its difficult days when it was facing global attack.

At the first martyrdom anniversary of Gen.Soleimani, different programs and ceremonies are underway nationwide.
