Iran lacks weapons-grade nuclear material -U.S.

WASHINGTON, March 10 (Reuters) - Iran lacks weapons-grade highly enriched uranium and has not yet made a decision on whether to produce any, U.S. intelligence officials told Congress on Tuesday.

The officials — Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair and Defense Intelligence Agency Director Lt. Gen. Michael Maples — also said recent Iranian missile tests were not directly related to its nuclear activities. They said the two programs were believed to be on separate development tracks.
