And 6 percent of uranium can Iran make a nuclear bomb?
90 percent pure uranium needs to be enriched to make nuclear bombs. Iran has enriched 84 percent of its uranium. This information was reported by the US financial media Bloomberg in a report about the inspector of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
In 2018, then US President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled the US out of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran. The terms of that agreement were that the Western world would ease sanctions on Iran and Iran would not enrich uranium. But Donald Trump pulled the US out of the deal and imposed sweeping sanctions on Tehran. As a countermeasure, Iran started enriching uranium from 2019. Although the country has always said, they have no intention of making a nuclear bomb.
Rafael Grossi, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said he had seen reports in the media of Iran’s uranium enrichment. Talks are being held with Tehran about this. He also said that the matter will be raised with the Board of Governors of IEA.
According to Al Jazeera news, this uranium found in Iran is the highest so far. Regarding the issue, the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Behroz Kamalvandi, told the state-owned media Fars News, “This is nothing different from a normal incident.”The presence of more than 60 percent uranium particles does not mean that 60 percent uranium is enriched.” He said that the IAEA did not report the matter to the member states of the organization. However, this information was leaked to the Western media. He called it an attempt to “blame” Iran.
