A review of new data from the International Atomic Energy Agency shows that given the amount of nuclear fuel Iran has produced in recent months; Tehran could achieve the amount of fuel needed to build a nuclear weapon within about a month.
The Institute for Science and International Security, after analyzing a recent IAEA report, concluded that Iran had enriched uranium to 60 percent over the summer after an intense effort, and is in a position to produce fuel for a nuclear warhead in about a month.
The report added: “Iran can produce the fuel needed for nuclear weapons in less than three months.”
Meanwhile, the New York Times quoted US officials as saying that Washington expects the government of Ibrahim Raisi and his team to call for more sanctions to be lifted in a new round of nuclear talks.
The report notes that regardless of access to sufficient nuclear fuel, it takes longer to make a real nuclear warhead.
At the same time, according to the report, since enrichment at 60 percent concentration takes longer, but from that point onwards, 90 percent enrichment can be done in rapid intervals, and such a situation can be worrisome.
On the other hand, a German Foreign Ministry spokesman described, on Monday, Iran’s agreement to resume monitoring by the International Atomic Energy Agency as a “positive first step.”
The spokesman said Germany expected the International Atomic Energy Agency to be able to monitor its cameras in the designated places “immediately”. He expressed the hope that the nuclear talks would resume soon.
It is noteworthy that Iran’s nuclear program and Tehran’s support for extremist groups were among the main topics discussed in Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s meeting with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in Sharm el-Sheikh.
