Iran’s government has approved plans to build 10 new uranium enrichment plants, the state broadcaster said on Sunday, a clear show of defiance after the UN nuclear watchdog rebuked Tehran over secret nuclear work.

Hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Iran should aim to produce 250-300 tonnes of nuclear fuel a year, it added.

Earlier, Iranian lawmakers urged the government to prepare a plan to reduce cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency.
