Enriched Uranium Reserves Named in Iran


Iran has sufficient capabilities to enrich uranium to any level. To begin work in this direction, Iranian specialists will only need the relevant government order.


This statement was made by Ali Asgar Zaren, Deputy Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. The official said:

If today the Iranian authorities make such a decision, the Atomic Energy Organization as an executor will be able to enrich
uranium for any percentage.

Zaren said that now the country's enriched uranium reserves are 1200 kilograms.

Tehran announced its readiness to finally withdraw from the nuclear deal on January 5 after the death of General Kassem Suleimani in Baghdad as a result of rocket fire from the United States. But if sanctions against Iran are lifted, and the Islamic Republic receives a guarantee that its rights will be respected, Tehran is ready to return to fulfilling the conditions of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA).

Earlier, the American edition of National Interest claimed that Iran could restore parity in the region only if it created its own nuclear weapon.

According to the IAEA, Tehran has resumed uranium enrichment at the Fordo nuclear complex since last November.

      The Americans are simply afraid to make a mistake. All the cones will sprinkle on them.
      In order to create a nuclear charge similar to that dropped on the city of Hiroshima in 1945, 25 kg of uranium, which is enriched up to 20%, will be needed. Israel previously reported that if Iran manages to accumulate this type of uranium in the amount of 240 kg, then a preventive strike will be delivered to Iranian nuclear facilities.
      Experts believe that for
      Iran needs four weeks to create full-fledged nuclear weapons
      up to one year. This is provided that Tehran has not yet developed
      own bomb or not purchased it from India, Pakistan or North Korea.
      The only obstacle for Iran is the country's lack of an effective means for delivering nuclear weapons. And although there are missiles, but they are old and liquid, and also can not be kept in combat readiness. Their preparation for the start takes time.

        in 1945 they were not afraid to use atomic bombs, but now they are afraid of conditional cones? Unlikely! They do not care for anyone else's opinion, except for their own. Losses, including image losses, human losses for which you have to answer at home and fear of losing are the only things that can stop them.

            Striped mattresses are still those warriors. They do not even fight the Bedouins if they can give them change. And they surrender their sneak with giblets when they teach that they no longer need them. So the Sumerians do not expect an enviable fate.

              The Sumerians forgot that they were once part of the Soviet Army and the USSR. I think there would be more nishtyaks waiting for them. And to be the heir to the collaborators of Bandera - well, this is THEIR CHOICE.
              Come on, brothers ...

              And the mattresses ... To fight with an 8-10-fold advantage in manpower and equipment is their style. But where were they to be taken in the 41st near Moscow and in Stalingrad? Therefore, in the English language there is no direct analogue to the Russian "stand to death". And in our Charter, none of them says that "if resistance is pointless and threatens life, then it is optimal to surrender in order to save life."
              Warriors, damn it ...

        From uranium, even 70% of enrichment for the 235th cannot be made nuclear weapons. Perhaps the point was that if 25 kg of uranium with 20% enrichment for the 235th isotope was made x kg of uranium, 90% enrichment for the 235th, then one bomb could be enough. However, I doubt that is enough.
        The last time we enriched uranium with an enrichment of about 20% according to the 235th for the Tehran research reactor TRR was the last time that we supplied Iranians using it to produce isotopes for diagnosing and treating cancer. So this uranium is under the strictest control of the IAEA.

        America overseas, no cones will sprinkle on them.
        In order to create a nuclear charge similar to that dropped on the city of Hiroshima in 1945

        Modern nuclear weapons are still at a different technological level compared to 1945. It is necessary at least that the charge would be placed in the warhead of existing missiles.
        The only obstacle for Iran is the country's lack of an effective means for delivering nuclear weapons. And although there are missiles, but they are old and liquid, and also can not remain in combat readiness

        I think that sowing. Koreans could well share the necessary technologies, in exchange for oil or something else. So, the only question is how quickly the Persians can assemble a warhead, if their installations allow uranium enrichment to such values.

            The old Iranian centrifuges (shown in the photo for the news, IR-2) had difficulty with the output of the product of the desired enrichment level at 235th, the spread could be doubled.

            they have no volumes or raw materials? or does this process take years to separate?

            For the reactor it is not enough, for about 40 years of operation, one of our VVER-440. The process in old centrifuges takes a lot of time, even for 5-10 simple warheads due to throws to and fro to enrich uranium hexafluoride. Moreover, Iran can enter the border between LEU and HEU (20%), but there is no stable quality. And yes, I'm afraid that at least a year for one warhead.

            Quote: Sadam
            why do they let the IAEA go if it doesn't get any worse?

            The enrichment of about 20% can be justified by the needs of TRR, more - work on a boat reactor.

            Nothing to experience yet.

            In general, they do not violate the NPT, but add. they are entitled to reduce obligations under the JCPOA after the US withdrawal.

        Nuclear weapons are no longer a secret. Everything rests on the expensive infrastructure needed to work with the components of "nuclear fuel". Production, disposal, a set of safety measures and the "products" themselves are not cheap to maintain. Yes, a lot more. Few can afford it.

      And who will guarantee that Iran does not crave nuclear weapons for the same Israel? Or even bigger Islamists will not come to power in Iran, and as Iran gets nuclear weapons, Turkey will want to and then the rest of the countries will be pulled. And what will the world lead to the massive proliferation of nuclear weapons? So there is nothing to rejoice here, if there is a goal to stop America, then you need to use completely different mechanisms, but not as an extension of the "nuclear club".

      Israel, not without the help of fellow believers from the Storage, invented for itself the vigorous BoNbu. He didn’t find anything among the Amov, unlike us. And these gizmos he has about 100 units. But the Jewish state does not openly threaten anyone to wipe it off the face of the earth. This is done by fanatics from Persia. And this is very dangerous, because A nuclear conflict in the BV will draw "all interested countries" into its orbit and will be the prologue of the TMV.

    to start a nuclear reaction, at least 1,2 grams of enriched uranium is needed
    if Iran has 1200 kg = 1 million thermonuclear warheads
    subject to Iran’s technology for producing tritium or deuterium

    All owners of nuclear weapons are afraid of precedent. If someone applies the smallest tactical UBC, the second one will use the UBC a bit more, and not one but three or four will nod his head in the direction of the first. And the third one will strike a massive blow with almost a clear conscience.
    And somewhere between the second and third cases of nuclear weapons suddenly will be with the terrorists.

    I will answer your stream of consciousness.
    It’s too late to bomb reactors. And an enrichment factory, too. Uranium has already been developed. It remains only to discard the formalities and declare that there are 1-5-20 special ammunition.
    There are a variety of delivery vehicles, both BRDS and KR, and aviation too.
    So here the situation is like with the UK, there is a meager chance to get nuclear weapons on its territory.
    Russia communicates well with the Saudis, who are the most Sunni Sunnis.

Losses, including image losses, human losses for which you have to answer at home and fear of losing are the only things that can stop them.

    In 1945, the Americans simply had nothing to fear.

      Well, minus signers, tell us what America was afraid of in 1945? There are atomic weapons, no one else has. The economy is booming due to military orders. Human casualties are small compared to potential adversaries. The territory of his country is almost covered by two oceans.
      Do you think in vain at that time we had so much energy swelled into nuclear weapons and their delivery vehicles? It was about the survival of our country and these are not just words ...

        Oh no, let's let Iran develop nuclear weapons and give Hezbollah to the hands of which is recognized as terrorist in MOST countries of the world and I want to remind these friends of ours to slander our diplomat by the way, and then they shout and why the European Union equated us with the Nazis by the way we are fighting next to each other side by side with Hezbollah and give them the opportunity to do nuclear weapons

          God forbid. I read somewhere that Openheimer after a successful test, when everyone was happy, he was gloomy. It seems he said like: "'I opened the gates of hell"

    In order to create a nuclear charge similar to that dropped on the city of Hiroshima in 1945, 25 kg of uranium, which is enriched up to 20%, will be needed. Israel previously reported that if Iran manages to accumulate this type of uranium in the amount of 240 kg, then a preventive strike will be delivered to Iranian nuclear facilities.

    Maksim! What is written on the link you provided is a banal linden. For starters, the Hiroshima bomb had 64 kg of uranium. In the "shell" was 25,6 kg of uranium enriched up to 89%, in the "target" - 38,42 kg of uranium enriched up to 80%.
    A uranium bomb with an enrichment of 20% can of course be made, only the critical mass of such uranium (if you make a simple bomb without a reflector) will be somewhere around 1200 kg. Can be done with uranium 15% enrichment. But there the critical mass will be even greater

    Experts believe that to create a full-fledged nuclear-type weapon, Iran needs from four weeks to one year. This is provided that Tehran has not yet developed
    own bomb or not purchased it from India, Pakistan or North Korea.

    Four weeks is a goofy nonsense. Now Iran is enriching uranium to the EMNIP of 4,5%. In order to enrich up to 20% (and this is already considered highly enriched uranium) it may take 4 weeks with a sufficient number of centrifuges. BUT they cannot make a bomb in 4 weeks
    Iran could not develop a bomb (unless a project) because since the start of uranium enrichment in the early 2000s, Iranians have never received uranium with enrichment of more than 20%
    Buy a bomb from India? Hindus are not fools or suicides. At Pakistan? Look who is more in Pakistan - Sunites or Shiites, as in Iran. They couldn’t buy it from the DPRK. Due to the fact that the Koreans’s arsenal is not so good as to sell, and the Iranians couldn’t be able to take it out

    From uranium, even 70% of enrichment for the 235th cannot be made nuclear weapons. Perhaps the point was that if 25 kg of uranium with 20% enrichment for the 235th isotope was made x kg of uranium, 90% enrichment for the 235th, then one bomb could be enough. However, I doubt that is enough.

    Make a bomb enriched up to 70%: U235 is possible. But only the critical mass will be under 100 kg
    Of 25 kg of uranium with an enrichment of 20%, 90 grams will be obtained. So you are right. Will not work

    Quote: TermNachTER
    I think that sowing. Koreans could well share the necessary technologies, in exchange for oil or something else. So, the only question is how quickly the Persians can assemble a warhead, if their installations allow uranium enrichment to such values.

    Iranian facilities allow uranium to be enriched to any size. Only it will take a lot of time

    But the accumulated plutonium of the USSR, the United States immediately bought or donated EBN drunk .. There were many and were exported quickly, typically for a US nuclear power plant .. Here are bastards, this plutonium pulled a trillion .. for the price ..

    Not given, but sold. Not weapons Pu-239, but Pu-238, suitable for creating RTGs for space programs. Not to be confused with the HEU-LEU deal.

    Russia sold 2005 kg of Pu-10 in the United States in accordance with the 238 agreement, with the possibility of increasing purchases to 40 kg. We have not sold plutonium since 2015. They began to produce this isotope themselves ...
    And the HEU-KNOW transaction was not a gift from EBN, but namely a transaction for which the Americans paid.

    It is, of course, a sin to rejoice in the expansion of the "nuclear club". But America will definitely not crave for Iran - it will clatter, as with North Korea.


    And who will guarantee that Iran does not crave nuclear weapons for the same Israel? Or even bigger Islamists will not come to power in Iran, and as Iran gets nuclear weapons, Turkey will want to and then the rest of the countries will be pulled. And what will the world lead to the massive proliferation of nuclear weapons? So there is nothing to rejoice here, if there is a goal to stop America, then you need to use completely different mechanisms, but not as an extension of the "nuclear club".

    There will be nuclear weapons in Iran, and will appear in the Saudi accident

    Quote: Romario_Argo
    to start a nuclear reaction, at least 1,2 grams of enriched uranium is needed
    if Iran has 1200 kg = 1 million thermonuclear warheads
    subject to Iran’s technology for producing tritium or deuterium
    or 1200 kg / 80 kg = 15 nuclear dirty warheads

    1 million warheads have never been in this world. For the entire existence of nuclear weapons, about 100 charges were received in total from all countries of the world. And you, Iran can only have 000 million BG. He has 1 kg (according to Iranian sources) of uranium enriched to a maximum of 1200%. And most likely up to 4,5%, since he began to enrich up to 3,67% only recently

    so in what status is the situation now ??? they do not have the appropriate centrifuges to enrich up to the 235th uranium? they have no volumes or raw materials? or does this process take years to separate? why do they let the IAEA go if it doesn't get any worse? and how is it experienced? in the ocean or in my desert ???

    They also have centrifuges. The truth is mostly old, first generation. An extremely small number of new ones. Most of these centrifuges were dismantled as a result of the agreement and are in stock. They also have raw materials. It will take months to install old centrifuges and begin the enrichment process (and it is a long one). It will take months to make centrifuges of new generations that are more productive than old ones. There is a reactor for the production of heavy water. There are rockets too. There is only one deficit - time.

    Not at all! Now I am putting together all the digital materials on the Iranian nuclear program. I’ll try in a week to post a small note on this topic. For there is a lot of superficial in it. Some generally believe that Iran will have a bomb almost tomorrow, others that it never will. And the numbers themselves, voiced by one of the leaders of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, differ somewhat from those that they cited at least in late December.

      This is not to say that we don’t know anything right. But, of course, the share of guesses and assumptions is large, because there is no complete information on the issue in the public domain. One thing is clear: for Iran, the question of creating a nuclear issue is a matter of time and desire. And they have resources and specialists.
