WASHINGTON - The United States said on Monday if Iran is enriching uranium to 20 percent at an underground facility at Fordow, this would be a "further escalation" of its pattern of violating its obligations under UN Security Council resolutions.

"If they are enriching at Fordow to 20 percent, this is a further escalation of their ongoing violations with regard to their nuclear obligations," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily briefing.
