Iran reportedly has twelve times as much enriched uranium as allowed. After the US exit, Tehran no longer adheres to all the requirements of the nuclear agreement: Iran’s stocks of enriched uranium are much higher than agreed, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Iran reportedly has twelve times as much enriched uranium as allowed
Iran has not yet provided the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with a sufficient explanation for the discovery of uranium particles in a facility that has not been declared a nuclear site. The agency also described Iran’s declarations about the discovery of nuclear material in an undeclared facility in the country as “not credible”. In addition, the country continues to enrich uranium and now has twelve times the amount allowed in the nuclear agreement. That comes from the quarterly report of the IAEA.
Since the United States withdrew from the international nuclear agreement with Tehran in 2018, Iran has continued to enrich uranium. The country now has more than 2,400 kilograms of enriched uranium, according to the report. In the nuclear agreement, Tehran agreed to comply with an upper limit of around 200 kilograms of pure uranium. After the US withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018, Iran no longer fulfills all the requirements of the agreement.
The IAEA demanded a comprehensive declaration from Iran, which had committed itself to transparency about its nuclear program in the Vienna Agreement of 2015. The agreement is intended to prevent the country ruled by Shiite clerics from building an atomic bomb.
The chemical signature of the atomic traces that were discovered at the site last year corresponded to that of traces on centrifuges that Iran imported from its neighboring country Pakistan, a nuclear power, the report said. The agency emphasized this as an unresolved issue after Iran recently granted IAEA inspectors access to two additional locations after a long dispute.
