VIENNA – Iran has turned all its highly-enriched uranium into more harmless forms, the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency said on Sunday.

Iran had more than 200 kilograms (over 250 pounds) of 20 percent enriched uranium, close to the level needed to make nuclear arms, when it reached an interim agreement with six world powers last November.

It began reducing the stockpile shortly after, under the terms of the interim agreement.

According to the IAEA report, which has been obtained by The Associated Press, all the 20 percent enriched uranium has now been converted or diluted.

Iran and the six powers agreed last Saturday to extend their negotiations for a comprehensive agreement until November 24.
