- Ayatollah Khamenei Says Iran Might Pull Trigger On 60% Uranium Enrichment
by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
With all eyes on the big question of whether Iran and the United States will actually sit down at the same table in EU-sponsored talks to restore the terms of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear deal (JCPOA), Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has just upped the ante with statements that surely also raised the alarm in Tel Aviv.
Khamenei declared on Monday that Tehran might continue enriching uranium up to 60% – which would blow far past the current 20% and put the country on the cusp of being able to produce a nuclear weapon. He further vowed the Islamic Republic will “never” yield to US pressure over what Iran has long claimed is actually a peaceful nuclear energy program.
