IAEA: One short step remains for Iran to enrich uranium to weapons grade

The IAEA made a statement about Iran's reaching a new level of uranium enrichment. The organization claims that now the Islamic Republic "is only one short step away from obtaining weapon-enriched uranium."


IAEA experts said that Iran has already begun enriching nuclear fuel up to 60 percent. At the same time, according to the experts of the organization, enrichment is carried out at the Fordow nuclear facility.

From the IAEA release:

After enrichment of uranium to 60%, it remains to take a short step towards enrichment to 90%, after which the creation of a nuclear weapons.

In the West, they say that in a few months Tehran will have enough enriched nuclear fuel to build at least one medium-yield nuclear warhead. Iran already has delivery vehicles in the form of medium-range missiles, so this kind of information cannot but cause concern among Iran's "sworn partners" in Israel and the United States.

Recall that at one time, with the active participation of Russia, it was possible to achieve the signing of a multilateral agreement, called the "nuclear deal" in the United States. Iran undertook obligations not to enrich uranium above the bar of 3,67% in exchange for the lifting of a number of sanctions. It was in 2015. However, then Donald Trump came to power in the United States and unilaterally withdrew from the deal. After that, the European participants in the deal turned to Tehran with a strange proposal to comply with their part of the obligations, arguing that they did not withdraw from the deal. Iran has long urged the United States to implement the agreement to return, but Washington has not done so. As a result, the Islamic Republic also decided that there was nothing for it to do in the deal and began to enrich uranium to create weapons that could solve many security problems.

Iran itself is currently not commenting on the IAEA's report on the enrichment of nuclear fuel up to 60 percent.

      And the IAEA does not want to clearly answer does Israel have nuclear weapons? otherwise they are only building antics, so why is Iran worse? After all, we are talking about creating parity and deterrence, no one is going to attack nuclear weapons.

        They never clearly answer, so as not to miscalculate. Suddenly, the United States will not like their statements.

      All this news around Iran, when it is accused of all sins, is like preparing the ground for a subsequent attack on it.

    What does short step mean? What a bad wording. Moreover, in Ukraine they are blind to the deaf, can they exchange delegations?

      In Ukraine, the virus infects members of the OSCE, the IAEA and other organizations. Complete blindness and deafness.
      And Iran, after the IAEA began to make various statements, turned off their cameras at the nuclear facility in Fordow.

    After a trip to Ukraine by the IAEA commission and its conclusions, is it worth trusting its conclusions on Iran.

    After rapprochement with Russia, what other steps can Iran have towards enrichment? It's been done for a long time, most likely. winked

    Iran has one small step left, but for Iran this is a huge step in strengthening sovereignty. Not "victims" of the Unified State Examination, they know that I have perianated.

    The IAEA should monitor the "steps of the Armed Forces of Ukraine" towards the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, as well as monitor the safety of radioactive materials from nuclear power plants in (in) Ukraine. The obvious consequences of the reckless views of the IAEA on the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be on the face of Eastern and Western Europe. Ukraine and Iran were not even close in terms of culture of attitude towards radioactive materials.

    Israel has nuclear weapons, North Korea has them, so why can't Iran protect itself? The United States wants to say here who can and who can't.
