Iran nearly acquires enough fuel to build nuclear weapons

The Iranian government is a month away from having enough nuclear fuel to build a single nuclear bomb to secure a nuclear agreement with the US and its allies intensify. The International Atomic Energy Agency reports that Iran has never been closer to bomb-grade levels since the 2015 nuclear deal. It is not clear in how much detail the country has produced nuclear fuel.

The officials have warned that it might be months before it has a second nuclear weapon. Iranian fuel was shipped out in 2015 after Obama reached a nuclear deal. Following the withdrawal of the United States from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty in 2019, Iran has gradually restocked its nuclear fuel supply.

Biden has said that he is willing to re-enter the deal, but so far, indirect talks have not concluded. During this period, Iran’s president was elected Ebrahim Raisi, a close protégé of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Despite Tehran’s tougher stance since his victory, Raisi has said he wants Iran to reclaim the benefits of the accord.
