TEHRAN – Iran announced what it called a major step forward in its nuclear program yesterday, showing determination to pursue it a day before talks in Geneva with world powers that fear Tehran may be seeking atom bombs.

Nuclear energy chief Ali Akbar Salehi said Iran would use domestically produced uranium concentrates, known as yellowcake, for the first time at a key nuclear facility — cutting its reliance on imports of the ingredient for nuclear fuel.

Western analysts say Iran sometimes exaggerates its nuclear advances to gain leverage in its stand-off with the West.
