Iran Says It Can Produce Higher Enriched Uranium in Less Than Two Days


Iran said on Monday it could produce higher enriched uranium within two days if the United States quit a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and six major powers, Tehran’s Arabic language al-Alam TV reported.

“If America pulls out of the deal … Iran could resume its 20 percent uranium enrichment in less than 48 hours,” Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told al-Alam TV.

Uranium refined to 20 percent fissile purity is well beyond the 5 percent normally required to fuel civilian nuclear power plants, though still well short of highly enriched, or 80-90 percent, purity needed for a nuclear bomb.

Kamalvandi said the deal — under which Iran curbed its uranium enrichment to help ensure it was for peaceful purposes only and secured an end to financial sanctions in return — is not re-negotiable, as demanded by the United States. The deal’s European signatories — Germany, Britain and France, as well as Russia and China — are committed to preserving the agreement.

  1. Joe Biden laughed in Paul Ryans face during the Vice Presidential debates in 2012 when confronted over this exact issue.
    Uncle Joe seems to thinks that every threat the Iranians make against Israel is fake. Every claim of danger that Israel reveals, is only exaggeration.
    It is clear that the Democrat party, Booker & Gillibrand included, HATE Israel and the Jews like poison and want to see them harmed in every way possible!
    When will you dumb stupid ignorant voters wake up to the truth??? Are you that brainwashed by CNN???
