Blinken Calls Iran’s Increase in Uranium Enrichment ‘Provocative’

Speaking from NATO Headquarters in Brussels on Wednesday, Secretary of State Antony Blinken denounced Iran’s decision to begin enriching some uranium to 60 percent as “provocative.”

“We take very seriously its provocative announcement of an intent to begin enriching uranium at 60 percent,” Blinken said. “I have to tell you the step calls into question Iran’s seriousness with regard to the nuclear talks.”

Missing from Blinken’s comments was any condemnation of what caused Tehran to take this step, which was the apparent Israeli attack on Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility. The US has tried to distance itself from the incident but has not denounced the attack.
