US Think Tank Claims Iran Could Have Enough Weapons-grade Uranium for Nuke in a Month

US and Israeli officials have spent much of the past decade claiming that Iran is on the brink of achieving nuclear weapons capability, alleging that the Islamic Republic may be just “months” or “weeks” away from building a nuke. Tehran denies having any intention to obtain nuclear arms, or weapons of mass destruction of any kind.

Iran will have enough highly enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon in just a month’s time, claims a new report by the Institute for Science and International Security (ISIS), a Washington-based think tank focusing on nuclear nonproliferation.

“A worst-case breakout estimate, which is defined as the time required to produce enough WGU [weapon-grade uranium] for one nuclear weapon, is as short as one month. Iran could produce a second significant quantity of WGU in less than three months after breakout commences. It could produce a third quantity in less than five months, where it would need to produce some of the WGU from natural uranium,” the report warns.
