The International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN nuclear watchdog, confirmed on Monday that Iran has started enriching uranium up to 20 percent at an underground site at Fordo, near the Shi'ite Muslim holy city of Qom, and said all atomic material there was under its surveillance.

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

"The fact that the IAEA has made clear that they are enriching to a level that is inappropriate at Fordow is obviously a problem," a State Department spokeswoman told reporters.

Nuland said the Vienna-based IAEA's assessment, previously reported by diplomats in Vienna, did not come as a surprise to the U.S.
