President Hassan Rouhani said Thursday Iran is now enriching more uranium than it did before inking a nuclear deal with world powers in 2015, as the remaining signatories of the landmark accord fail to fulfill their commitments.
Iran announced Sunday it would abandon restrictions on enriching uranium, taking a further step back from commitments to a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, maintaining, however, that it would continue cooperation with the UN nuclear watchdog.
Iran is producing even more low-enriched uranium daily than previously thought, after resuming enrichment at a nuclear laboratory built in a mountain, the head of the country's nuclear program told AP on Monday.
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani hit back at US national security advisor John Bolton over his claim that “there should be no uranium enrichment for Iran”, saying it “lacks any legal value.”
Days after threatening to make nuclear bombs, the Saudi crown prince boasts about the kingdom’s rich uranium reserves, saying Riyadh wants to have the ability to enrich its own uranium for use in the nuclear reactors to be built on Saudi soil.
Uranium can perform reactions that previously no one thought possible, which could transform the way industry makes bulk chemicals, polymers, and the precursors to new drugs and plastics, according to new findings from The University of Manchester.
