IAEA Falsely Claims Iran’s Tiny Stockpile of 60% Uranium Growing Rapidly

The IAEA is continuing to offer misleading reports on Iran’s nuclear program, giving false impressions of rapid growth of the uranium stockpiles built around counting the rate of growth of trivially small segments.

Tuesday’s report both centers on Iran’s 60% enriched uranium stockpile, a stockpile which didn’t even exist at the start of the year but has “quadrupled” since May. The report also complains about the struggles since the expiry of a monitoring agreement with Iran.

In context, Iran had only just started enriching to 60% in May, and Iranian state media self-reported a stockpile of 6.5 kg of it in mid-June. That’s not a lot by any objective measure. Even then, the IAEA estimated the stockpile today at only 10 kg. Claiming it quadrupled is based on going back to the very start of the process to try to make it sound like rapid growth when it is plainly not.
