The UN accuses Iran of enriching uranium above the nuclear pact and limiting international inspections

Iran is enriching uranium in quantity and purity well above that agreed in the 2015 nuclear pact, while substantially limiting international inspections and not responding to specific doubts about its past activities, the IAEA, the UN's atomic agency, criticized this Monday.In its most recent report, issued in Vienna, the IAEA specifies that Iran currently has 3,241 kilos of enriched uranium, 9.2% more than in February, with a few kilos of this material (2.4) with a purity of 60%, a value close to that necessary to make atomic bombs. On the other hand, the IAEA calls "deeply disturbing" that Iran remains unanswered to questions about the presence of fissile material at three undec...

It could result in further action by Israel, whose Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed never to allow Tehran to obtain a nuclear weapon, and further raise tensions across the Mideast.Already earlier in the day, Iran's foreign minister had warned that the weekend assault could hurt ongoing negotiations over its tattered atomic deal with world powers. Those talks are aimed at finding a way for the United States to re-enter the agreement, the goal of which i...
