In an apparent attempt to show off nuclear advances, Iran is claiming to have delivered two batches of domestically made nuclear fuel to a research reactor, Reuters reports.
The move comes just days before negotiations with six world powers are set to take place.
"In their latest efforts, experts from Iran's Atomic Energy Organization succeeded in delivering two domestically made nuclear fuel plates to the Tehran research reactor," state television said on its website.
Iran reportedly may exaggerate its progress with nuclear technology in an effort to sway negotiations with world powers, who aim to police the country's efforts, Reuters reports.
If the country’s claims are true, that would wipe out a deal requiring Iran to send enriched uranium abroad in exchange for nuclear fuel, which would allow for world powers to continue monitoring the country's supply for a potential nuclear weapon, according to Reuters.
Envoys for Iran and six world powers will meet Wednesday in Baghdad to discuss ways to ease suspicions about Iran's nuclear energy program.
