Iran has long been at the center of international concerns, over its controversial nuclear plan. The IAEA report further proved that Iran is capable of making a nuclear weapon.
It confirmed that Iran has refined nearly 2 tons of low-enriched uranium to the purity of 20-percent. That's a critical development. The report says the next step, purifying from 20 to 90 percent, would take just six months.
Iran has increased its low-enriched uranium stockpile by more than six times. And the current storage is enough for one or two nuclear bombs, if enriched to 90 percent purity.
Last October, the IAEA called for Iran to ship out 75 percent of its low-enriched uranium stockpile to Russia, for higher enrichment.
From there it would go to France to be turned into fuel rods for the reactor. But Iran didn't accept the proposal.
