An Iranian bomb might be closer than previously thought. Continuing his assessment of Iran's nuclear program, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) analyst Maseh Zarif points that Iran:
- Needs to produce an additional 14 kg of near-20% enriched uranium (which has to be converted to weapons-grade uranium) to have enough for one 25 kg nuclear bomb.
- It could take as little as 3 weeks or as long as 4 months for Iran to produce enough weapons grade uranium for one bomb.
