Nuclear

By Amir Basiri,

Iran's missile program has accelerated since the signing of the nuclear agreement between Tehran and world powers in 2015, a new report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran revealed.
According to NCRI's findings, which were made public at a press conference held at the council's Washington office on Tuesday, the scope of Iran's missile program is much more extensive than was previously thought.

Foreign Minister Zarif’s effort at deflection portrays Iran as a beacon of democracy in a region of autocrats. He criticizes Middle East neighbors and American allies for their role in global conflicts, all the while ignoring Iran’s notorious domestic repression and record of sponsoring wars in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, recently said Tehran is fully prepared to mass-produce various types of centrifuges. More importantly, some state-owned newspapers have reported that Iran has already begun doing so. This should be taken seriously, as it means Tehran is trying to significantly decrease its nuclear breakout time — the length of time it needs to produce a nuclear weapon.

Iran hacked the emails and social media accounts of State Department officials during a crucial stage of the nuclear deal in 2015, according to multiple sources familiar with the details, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Wednesday.

 Critics of the nuclear agreement said the Obama administration did not publicly talk about the cyberattack, because they feared it could harm support for the arrangement, especially at such a sensitive time.

London, 5 Jun - The agency responsible for assessing the Iranian Regime’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear accord has warned that another breach may be soon approaching.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) released its quarterly report, in which it stated that Iran is incredibly close to its stockpile limit of heavy water, a chemical which is used to make nuclear weapons. Their levels of heavy water currently sit at 128.2 tonnes, just below the 130 tonne limit.

Iran continues to make critical technological strides in its efforts to perfect an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering nuclear weapons over great distances, efforts that violate international prohibitions, according to the director of national intelligence, who informed Congress this week that the Islamic Republic "would choose ballistic missiles as its preferred method of delivering nuclear weapons."

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said last month that Iran is complying with the terms of the 2015 nuclear agreement. The positive finding of the State Department’s routine periodic review of the nuclear agreement, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was surprising given President Trump’s assessment that it was “the worst deal ever negotiated.” Some analysts believed Tillerson was signaling that the Trump administration would let the agreement stand rather than “rip it up” as the president had promised.
