The United Nations says that Iran has increased its supply of enriched uranium by 30% but Iran says that that is meant for nuclear energy not for nuclear weapons.
The United States has been trying to revive a nuclear weapons treaty with Iran but that is not going well because the two countries disagree on sanctions. They also disagree on how much Western countries will retain the right to inspect nuclear facilities. Given that the U.S. was the first country in the world to launch a hacking attack on a foreign power and that foreign power was Iran’s nuclear facilities, can you blame them?
Iran does need enriched uranium to run its first nuclear power facility. It also has two more in the works because, as we’ve said many times, nuclear power is the safest and most environmentally-friendly type of energy we’ve got right now.
So some fundamental questions:
Can the West let them have uranium to power their country or does the West not want them to have that for ulterior reasons? Is the worry about nuclear weapons legitimate given that the United States is the only country that has ever actually used a nuclear weapon? Could this possibly be related to the fact that Russia is the one helping them build those nuclear power plants?
