Official: Iran able to make nuclear bomb, no decision to build one yet
As president biden made his way back to the united states following his trip to the middle east…A senior official in iran is responding to the president’s vow to keep iran from becoming a nuclear power.
The senior official says iran already has the capability of making a nuclear bomb.
The technical capacity is there.
They just haven’t decided yet whether they will make nuclear weapons or not.
President biden spent several days in israel and saudi arabia last week.
A major focal point of the visit…Getting leaders of the middle east in agreement that nuclear grade weapons should stay out of the hands of iran.
And they agreed.
“And as we continue to work closely with many of you to counter the threats posed by foes in the region, by iran, we’re also pursuing diplomacy to return constraints on iran’s nuclear program. But no matter what, the united states is committed to ensuring that iran never gets a nuclear weapon.”
Iran already has the capability to enrich uranium up to 60 percent.
90 percent is suitable for a nuclear bomb.
The Iranian senior official says they can ‘easily produce’ that if they choose to do so. Israel has threatened to attack any Iranian nuclear sites if diplomacy fails to contain their nuclear ambitions. Iran has reportedly held ‘extensive drills’ to ‘strike deep inside of Israel’ if they are targeted.
