Iran Now Has Enough Uranium For Nuclear Weapon, U.N. Watchdog Reportedly Says
(Worthy News) – Iran has amassed enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon, according to a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency viewed by several media outlets Monday, as the IAEA presses Iran to cooperate with a probe into its nuclear program and the United States seeks to re-enter a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.
Iran now has around 43 kilograms (95 pounds) of uranium enriched to 60%, a roughly 10-kilogram jump since March, the IAEA said in a quarterly report obtained Monday afternoon by the Wall Street Journal, Reuters and Agence France-Presse. [ Source: Forbes (Read More…) ]
Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile 18 times over 2015 deal limit: IAEA
The UN nuclear watchdog said Monday that it estimated Iran’s stockpile of enriched uranium had grown to more than 18 times the limit laid down in Tehran’s 2015 deal with world powers.
The International Atomic Energy Agency said in its latest report on Iran’s nuclear program that it “estimated that, as of May 15, 2022, Iran’s total enriched stockpile was 3,809.3 kilograms.”
The limit in the 2015 deal was set at 300 kg (660 pounds) of a specific compound, the equivalent of 202.8 kg of uranium. [ Source: AFP (Read More…) ]
