Iran Produces Uranium Metal, IAEA Says, in Latest Breach of Deal
Iran has carried out its plan to produce uranium metal, the UN atomic watchdog confirmed on Wednesday, despite Western powers having warned Iran that would breach their 2015 nuclear deal as uranium metal can be used to make the core of an atom bomb.
Iran began breaching its nuclear deal with major powers step by step in 2019 in response to former US President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the deal the previous year and Washington's reimposition of sanctions on Tehran.
Iran has in recent months accelerated those breaches of the deal's restrictions on its atomic activities, potentially complicating efforts to bring the United States back into the deal under President Joe Biden. (JPost / VFI News)
