U.S. warns Iran may produce enough material for nuclear bomb

Top officials in U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration warned senators that Iran had enough capacity to produce nuclear bomb within two months, Politico reported.

According to Politico, one of the senators called the statement that was delivered in a classified briefing, “sobering and shocking.”

The politico said that U.S. lawmakers still disagree over the best solution to the Iranian problem.

It said that most Democrats urge a rebirth of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) while Republicans seek to return former U.S. President Donald Trump’s policy and impose devastating sanctions on Iran.

The JCPOA was signed in 2015 by the United Kingdom, Russia, China, Germany, U.S., France, the European Union and Iran, imposing restrictions on the advancement of the Iran nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of U.S. sanctions.

In 2018, former U.S. President, Donald Trump, unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA and re-imposed sanctions on Iran.

The Iranian government responded with a gradual retreat from JCPOA obligations.

Since April 2021, Vienna has been hosting talks to restore the deal.

The seventh round of Vienna talks on bringing Iran back to the nuclear deal and lifting U.S. sanctions ended on Dec. 17.

The parties agreed on two drafts of the deal, which included provisions covering Iranian interests.

The eighth round of the talks resumed on Tuesday in Vienna, but the meeting of the joint commission has yet to be held.
