Iran ‘can make a nuclear bomb in 3 weeks,’ says UN


Iran has enough enriched uranium to make a bomb in three weeks and there is no guarantee that its nuclear programme is peaceful, the UN atomic watchdog said on Wednesday.

The International Atomic Energy Agency said its director general Rafael Grossi was “increasingly concerned that Iran has not engaged with the agency on the outstanding safeguards issues … and, therefore, that there has been no progress toward resolving them.”

The IAEA has been demanding answers from Iran on the presence of nuclear material at three undeclared sites. The issue led to a resolution criticizing Iran at the June meeting of the agency’s board of governors.

On Wednesday, Grossi urged Iran to “fulfill all its legal obligations” on outstanding questions about the three sites.—AN
