BEX ALERT - Secretary of State Blinken Says Iran Could Be 'Weeks' From Having Material to Build Nuke

Hopes for a speedy US return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal have been dashed amid a vocal disagreement between Tehran and Washington on which side should make concessions first. Iran says the US must remove all sanctions. The US wants the Islamic Republic to return to its obligations under the nuclear accord.

Iran may be just "a matter of weeks" away from accumulating enough fissile material to build a nuclear bomb, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said, echoing claims made by Israel for the better part of the last decade.

Blinken made the comments in an interview with NBC News' Andrea Mitchell that was published Monday.

The secretary reiterated that the US was ready to return to compliance with the JCPOA nuclear deal if Iran did the same, and promised to work with US allies and partners on a "longer and stronger" agreement 'encompassing other issues'. He went on to say that the US nationals detained in Iranian prisons "need to be released," "irrespective of...any deal."

Iran has been weeks away from having the bomb for thirty years now!
