Iran's Government Spokesman Ali Rabiei says the country has officially started enriching uranium at a rate of up to 20 percent.

In comments on Monday, Rabiei said, "The president had in recent days ordered the implementation of the Strategic Action to Lift Sanctions law. Accordingly, the gas injection process started a few hours ago, and the first UF6 enriched uranium product will be achieved within a few hours."

He said the whole process started after preliminary measures including informing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and submitting the Design Information Questionnaire based on the country's Safeguards commitments.

Rabiei said the government has clearly declared its view of the law passed by the Parliament, but it is duty-bound to implement the law.
