Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) spokesman Khadem Qaemi said operations were at 40% of capacity. 

Earlier in 2011, the IAEA said no information suggests "possible military dimensions" to its plans.

Other nations do it for the same reason despite the hazards of nuclear power in all forms.
