Iran has enriched more than 120 kilograms of 20-percent enriched uranium, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Mohammad Eslami, said on Saturday. “We have passed 120 kilograms. We have more than that figure,” state news agency IRNA quoted him as saying.
A rapid nuclear deal with Iran is “farther away than before” with the country waiting for its new president to settle in before entering serious talks, a leading academic has told The National. An agreement is now highly unlikely until after August when President Ebrahim Raisi’s new team takes office.
