The UN’s nuclear watchdog reported Tuesday that Iran has stocked up enough enriched uranium to build an atomic bomb.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said the Islamic Republic has built a stockpile of 95 pounds worth of uranium enriched to 60%, up from just 22 pounds three months ago. If enriched further to 90%, that uranium would be enough to build a nuclear bomb, according to NBC News, which obtained the report.
"A person close to the IAEA said Iran’s stockpile of 60% is now above the so-called significant quantity that defines how much…needed for a nuclear weapon. Experts say it would take Iran just a couple of weeks to convert [it] into 90% weapons-grade fuel" https://t.co/E8OX9APgmw

The report said that Iran would not face technical challenges if it wished to enrich the uranium further to reach the 90% threshold, according to the outlet. The agency also reported that Iran had not disclosed the location of some nuclear materials despite having ample opportunity to do so.
