VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran has taken further action to comply with the terms of an extended interim nuclear agreement with six world powers, a monthly U.N. atomic agency update on the accord's implementation showed on Monday.

The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), seen by Reuters, said Iran had diluted more than 4,100 kg of low enriched uranium down to the level of natural uranium.

Refined uranium can be used to fuel nuclear power plants, Iran's declared goal, but can also provide the fissile core of a nuclear bomb if processed much further, which the West fears may be the country's ultimate aim.
