Iran ex­plor­ing ura­nium en­rich­ment

The Times-Tribune - - NATION & WORLD -

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 50-year-old re­search re­ac­tor in Tehran, sig­nal­ing new dan­ger for the nu­clear deal.

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.
