Iran is steadily producing enriched uranium despite the 2009 Stuxnet worm, International Atomic Energy Agency Director-General Yukia Amano told The Washington Post in an interview published Monday.

The IAEA chief told the paper that the agency is concerned "over the possible use of nuclear materials for military purposes - in the past and perhaps now."

Amano, however, admitted that the international nuclear regulatory agency doesn't have much expertise in estimating when Iran might be capable of building a nuclear weapon. "What we are doing is [tracking] how much enriched uranium they have," she said.
