UN watchdog: Iran has 3 undeclared nuclear sites – Uranium stockpile tripled in 3 months
BREAKING: Iran has tripled its stockpile of enriched uranium over the last three months in violation of its deal with world powers and is refusing to answer questions about three possible undeclared nuclear sites, the UN nuclear watchdog agency says.
The International Atomic Energy Agency said that Iran’s total enriched uranium stockpile amounted to 1,020.9 kilograms (1.1 tons), compared to 372.3 kilograms noted in its last report on Nov. 3, 2019.
The nuclear deal that Iran signed in 2015 with the United States, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia allows Iran only to keep a stockpile of 202.8 kilograms.
In a second report issued today, the IAEA said it had identified three locations in Iran where the country possibly stored undeclared nuclear material or undertook nuclear-related activities without declaring it to international observers. It said it had sent questions to Iran in three separate letters but received no answers.
In November, the IAEA confirmed all of Israel’s claims regarding the Turquzabad nuclear warehouse in Tehran and the fact that Uranium was found at the site.
