International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations’ atomic watchdog, reported that Iran has exceeded the limit on the amount of enriched uranium in its stockpile set out in the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. It verified that the 300kg (660lb) limit had been exceeded.
1. In May, Iran has stepped up production of enriched uranium which is used to make reactor fuel but also potentially nuclear bombs.
2. Iran was exercising its right to respond to a unilateral US withdrawal from the agreement in 2018 and reimposed punishing sanctions on Tehran.
3. Hence Iran’s the accumulation of more enriched uranium than permitted under the deal was not a violation of the pact.
