The Obama administration and 5 other world powers have approved a shipment of nearly 130 tons of natural uranium from Russia to Iran, 2 senior diplomats told the Associated Press.
The move seeks to keep Tehran committed to the nuclear deal and is meant to compensate the Islamic Republic for exporting tons of reactor coolant that can be used to create plutonium for nuclear weapons.
Uranium can be enriched to levels ranging from reactor fuel or medical and research purposes to the core of an atomic bomb, ABC reports.
Iran says it has no interest in such weapons and its activities are being closely monitored under the nuclear pact to make sure they remain peaceful.
David Albright, whose Institute of Science and International Security often briefs U.S. lawmakers on Iran’s nuclear program, says the shipment could be enriched to enough weapons-grade uranium for more than 10 simple nuclear bombs, “depending on the efficiency of the enrichment process and the design of the nuclear weapon.”
The Jewish Press pointed out that last month, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani ordered the country’s nuclear agency to develop nuclear engines that could use uranium enriched to 20 percent. That would imply a future violation of the 2015 nuclear deal, which allows Iran to enrich uranium only to 3.67 percent.
This shipment can be described as many things, but it does not seek to keep Tehran committed to a nuclear pact. One would argue it does just the opposite.
President Barack Obama has yet again sold out America to its enemies. His last days in office are turning out to be some of his worst.
While Democrats fawn over Meryl Streep trashing President-elect Donald Trump, they have little to say about Obama’s treasonous act, as usual.
TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
