Iran’s enriched uranium is almost 16 times the limit of the 2015 agreement

Top IAEA official, Rafael Grossi, expresses concern about several undeclared locations in Iran and the fact that technical discussions between Tehran and that agency “have not produced the expected results”.

Iran holds an amount of enriched uranium almost 16 times the limit authorized by the 2015 nuclear agreement, according to a report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The IAEA estimate, which clarifies that it was unable to calculate the total, indicates that the amount of enriched uranium held by Iran reached 3,241 kilograms, when the limit was fixed and 202.8 kilograms, according to the report consulted today by France-Presse.

This amount of enriched uranium accumulated by Iran is already almost 16 times the limit authorized by the 2015 agreement. The IAEA’s top official, Rafael Grossi, also expresses his concern in the document about several undeclared sites in Iran and the fact that technical discussions between Tehran and that agency “did not produce the expected results”.

The meetings, which started in April, aimed to clarify the possible presence of nuclear material in several places, but “its current location is not known by the agency”, the document says. In the previous February report, the nuclear authority of the United Nations (UN) mentioned, without specifying, one of these locations – a warehouse in the district of Turquzabad, in the province of Tehran.

The report now refers to three sites in total and mentions a fourth for which “Iran has not responded to the agency’s questions”. The Tehran regime has been gradually failing to fulfill its nuclear commitments since 2019, in response to the reinstatement of sanctions by the United States, still under the administration of Donald Trump.

Currently, negotiations are taking place in Vienna, at the headquarters of the IAEA, for the return of the United States to the agreement, aimed at preventing that the Islamic Republic from becoming a nuclear power.
