Iran began violating the nuclear deal in 2019, in response to renewed US sanctions, and has accelerated them in recent months, including returning to enriching uranium to 20%.

The distance between this level and the 90% needed for nuclear weapons development can be covered in a fairly fast period of time.

The nuclear deal limits Tehran to a 3.67% enrichment level, and the Biden administration is demanding that it return to it and fulfill its other commitments before lifting the sanctions.



Iran has repeatedly stated that it has never planned to develop nuclear weapons, but its intelligence minister Mahmoud Alawi hinted this week that it could turn in that direction if international sanctions are not lifted.

Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei made it clear this week that Tehran will not be the one to take the first step and that Washington must first remove all sanctions.

In Iran, it is emphasized that all the steps taken are quickly reversible.
