Iran nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi,we could enrich uranium to 20% within four days, if exit the JCPOA (Iran nuclear deal )

GENEVA - Iran can enrich uranium up to 20 percent within four days, its atomic energy chief said on Tuesday, a comment apparently aimed at showing Tehran could quickly expand its enrichment program if its nuclear deal with world powers collapses.

Iran’s 2015 accord with world powers caps the level to which it is able to enrich uranium to 3.67 percent purity, well below the 20 percent it was reaching before the deal, and the roughly 90 percent suitable for a nuclear weapon.

President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the deal last May, calling it flawed, and reimposed sanctions on Iran. Tehran refuses to renegotiate and has said the deal could fall apart unless European signatories preserve its economic benefits for the Islamic Republic against U.S. pressure.

“If we want to come out of the nuclear deal and produce, within four days we could start our 20 percent,” Ali Salehi, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, told the semi-official Fars News Agency. “But we already have stockpiles of 20 percent, and the capability.”

Salehi did not elaborate on his remark about stockpiles. Iran’s reserve of 20 percent enriched uranium was downblended, shipped abroad or turned into fuel plates for a research reactor after the nuclear deal was clinched.

Salehi told Reuters in an interview last November that Iran could resume enriching uranium to 20 percent purity — seen as well above the level suitable for fueling civilian power plants — if the 2015 deal’s trade spin-offs do not pan out for Tehran.

Do you really believe that the US or Israel for that matter is going to allow Iran to enrich uranium to the point that could be used for military purposes?

Iran IRIB3 Hala Khorshid TV program Telecommunication Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi: Payam AmirKabir 5 satellite with Simorgh SLV launch has failed on third stage, but the Dosti saterlite will be next to launched to Orbit

That would be challenging for Iran but I must loud Iran persistence on this matter. Even China and other advanced countries still struggle when it comes to space exploration.

I think the US is monitoring Iran activity in this regard and as soon as Iran gets close the US and its allies will take military measures. Obamas red lines do not count.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged Iran to pull out its forces, allegedly stationed in Syria, threatening to continue air raids on the territory of the Arab Republic, The Jerusalem Post reported.
"I'm telling you, get out of there fast. We won't stop attacking", the Israeli prime minister said.

That has always been the way for US/Israel in the region. Did not they take Iraq, Syria nuclear facilities down? What makes Iran different? Also enriching uranium at a fast pace is not possible. Iran if it felt for a second that it is in danger it will destroy itself and drag the entire region with it.

I big to differ. Iran is a npt party and found non compliant with that therefore negotiating with Iran to comply by allowing periodic inspection of its nuclear facilities.

are we talking about the same thing?
i meant the p5+1 negotiations (which started as the eu3, which led to the e3+3), instead of daring to repeat the syria/iraq attacking scenario.

there were phases before the p5+1 deal was signed, in which iran was indeed doing more than needed to acquire just merely nuclear energy (i think it was from 2002-2005). nevertheless, the details in the p5+1 have by many inspections actually been verified as ''still fully compliant'' till very recently.
even though some still engage in child-level diplomacy every now and then, claiming the opposite

Yes but Iran is violating the deal by proceeding with its missile program.
