Iran Has Begun 60% Uranium Enrichment – Chief Nuclear Negotiator

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


The Trump Administration had Iran on their knees, because of crippling economic sanctions. Iran also knew that President Trump would authorize a military option if all else failed. As such, President Trump could have negotiated a rational deal with Iran, that would have prevented the terror state from acquiring a nuclear weapon.

Those days are long gone. Today, Iran’s leaders know that the Biden Administration is desperate to re-enter the JCPOA. They know that every  provocation will be tolerated by the Biden Administration appeasers.

However, Israel will not subscribe to those rules. Right now Israel and and Iran are trading blows. How long before Israel reaches a breaking point, and launches a full scale military attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities?

Iran has begun 60% uranium enrichment – chief nuclear negotiator

Araqchi also announced that Iran will introduce 1,000 more centrifuges at the Natanz nuclear facility

By Jerusalem Post, April 13, 2021

Iran announced that it will begin enriching uranium up to 60% at the Natanz nuclear facility attacked earlier this week, which would be an unprecedented level for the Islamic Republic, Iranian state media reported on Tuesday.
Fissile material must reach 90% purity to be used for a nuclear weapon. Under the 2015 nuclear deal, Iran was meant to enrich uranium to under 5%, until it expired in 2030.
Chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi also said Iran would install 1,000 more centrifuge machines in Natanz, the nuclear site whose regular and emergency electrical grids exploded on Sunday, in an act that Iran has called terrorism by Israel. Sources have confirmed that the Mossad was behind the explosion.
Before 2015 and since Iran began violating the nuclear deal in 2019, Iran enriched its stock to about 20%.
Even the jump to 20% set off alarms globally as taking a major additional step toward a nuclear weapon – especially since there is no viable civilian use for 20% enriched uranium.
But to date, Iran has not enriched uranium up to 60%, often referred to as the next level for jumping toward a nuclear weapon.
US President Joe Biden has called for Iran to return to compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as the world powers’ 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran is called, in exchange for the US lifting sanctions placed on Iran in recent years and an American return to the JCPOA.

Indirect negotiations between Iran and the US were scheduled to continue in Vienna on Thursday, after a one-day postponement. Neither side commented on whether talks would continue nor did the State Department comment on the matter at all by press time.
However, the US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan “reaffirmed the Biden-Harris administration’s unwavering commitment to Israel’s security and to ensuring Iran will never obtain a nuclear weapon,” in a virtual meeting with his Israeli counterpart Meir Ben-Shabbat on Tuesday. This was their second strategic consultation, and they said they would continue an open dialogue in the months ahead. Sullivan invited Ben-Shabbat to visit Washington later this month.
Russia’s Ambassador in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov, who is involved in the nuclear talks, tweeted that on Thursday, “no doubt that in addition to previous issues the Commission will address the latest steps of Iran in the nuclear field, including 60% enrichment.”
The European parties to the Iran deal – the UK, France and Germany – have spoken out against Iran’s recent increase of enrichment to 20% and its development of uranium metal, pointing out that they have no credible civilian use, but not immediately.
An Israeli official said that enrichment to 60% is “breaking a threshold where it’s very clear what they’re doing and obviously this is well on the way for a weapons-grade material.”
