Abbas Araqchi said the statement by the Leader that Iran definitely needs a uranium enrichment capacity of 190,000 SWUs (separative work units) in order to fuel its nuclear reactors is a target for Tehran’s nuclear program.  
However, Araqchi said this “does not mean that Iran wants to develop a uranium enrichment capacity of 190,000 SWUs this year or the next year… or even in five years.” 
The timeline for Iran to reach the target is a subject for discussion in nuclear talks with the major powers, said Araqchi, the deputy foreign minister for legal and international affairs.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Araqchi said that Iran and the major powers will resume their talks on a final comprehensive deal on Tehran’s nuclear program in late August or early September.
