"Iran’s continued production of enriched uranium and its significant, unexpected expansion of the buried enrichment facility at Fordow in the last three months will further reduce the time the regime would need to produce nuclear weapons fuel. These advances demonstrate that various policy declarations, negotiations, and increasing sanctions have not halted Iran’s illicit nuclear work and its progress toward a faster breakout capability." -- Maseh Zarif, AEI
