UN Watchdog: Iran Inching Closer to Enriching Weapons-Grade Uranium – The New American

The Islamic Republic of Iran has reportedly enriched uranium to 63 percent, according to a United Nations watchdog. The report could mean that Iran, which has repeatedly threatened to remove Israel from the map, is getting dangerously close to enriching weapons-grade uranium that could be used to create nuclear weapons.According to a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Iran has enriched uranium to as high as 63 percent purity, which is higher than their announced goal of 60 percent and far higher than the 3.67 percent allowed by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) or Iran nuclear deal, which was signed in 2015.
