Iran ex­plores nuke en­rich­ment process

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION & WORLD 2 -

TEHRAN, Iran — The head of Iran’s nu­clear pro­gram said Sun­day that the Is­lamic Repub­lic has be­gun “pre­lim­i­nary ac­tiv­i­ties for de­sign­ing” a mod­ern process for 20 per­cent ura­nium en­rich­ment for its re­search re­ac­tor in Tehran.

Res­tart­ing en­rich­ment at that level would mean Iran had with­drawn the 2015 nu­clear deal it struck with world pow­ers, an ac­cord that Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump al­ready pulled Amer­ica out of in May.
