VIENNA  — The US, Russia and France say that Iran's project to enrich uranium to a higher degree is raising fresh concerns about its nuclear intentions.

Their joint statement is critical of Teheran's decision to enrich to the 20-percent level, saying it represents "a further step toward a capability to produce highly enriched uranium."

The confidential joint statement was shared Tuesday with The Associated Press.

Uranium enriched up to 90 percent is used to arm nuclear warheads. Iran says its enrichment program is peaceful, but the international community fears it is a cover for plans to develop such weapons.
