Iran Building Two New Nuclear Plants


breaking world news iran israel

(Worthy News) - Iranian leaders announced on Monday the construction of two new nuclear plants, and it remains unclear if the Trump administration views this as crossing a red line since its abandonment of the landmark nuclear deal, which included provisions permitting Iran to work on heavy water nuclear reactors that could provide a plutonium-based pathway to a bomb.

On the same day it announced these new nuclear reactors, which are being built in conjunction with Russia, Iran announced it would be filing papers accusing the United States of "crimes against humanity."

The new nuclear moves are rattling congressional Iran hawks, who have been critical of a series of waivers issued by the Trump administration permitting Iran to continue engaging in nuclear research, including at an underground site that once housed the regime's nuclear weapons program.

  1. Being new plants it is unlikely to produce much in the way of Plutonium. If it does then the waste will be shipped out of the country as per the JCPOA, inspectors have full access to the power plants.

    I like the reference to the "underground site that once housed the regime's nuclear weapons program". They do have underground sites. They did construct centrifuges and enrich uranium there to fuel grade level of 5% but not to the 95% level needed for weapons grade. Inspectors have full access to all registered nuclear facilities.
