Tel Aviv: While the world is busy trying to end the wars in Ukraine and Israel, Iran is taking advantage of the situation and has accelerated its efforts to build a nuclear device.
Israeli sources say that the Iranian nuclear sites are “working around the clock” to accumulate enough enriched Uranium that will be enough for the bomb.
“We follow these efforts and share the data with the United States and European countries but they react as if this happening on the moon,” one senior source said.
According to Iran International, the website operated from London by the opposition to the regime in Tehran, Iran has responded to last week’s UN nuclear watchdog censure resolution by expanding its uranium enrichment capacity at two underground sites.
“While non-binding, resolutions by the International Atomic Energy Agency’s 35-nation Board of Governors anger Tehran, which typically responds by accelerating its nuclear activities,” the website quoted unnamed officials.
According to the website, eighteen months earlier, Iran responded to a similar resolution by enriching uranium to up to 60% purity—close to weapons-grade—at a second site and announcing a significant expansion of its enrichment program.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recently passed a resolution  calling on Iran to step up cooperation with the agency and reverse its recent decision to bar visits by inspectors.
The resolution was tabled by the Britain, France and Germany, which the United States reportedly opposed but later endorsed. Only Russia and China voted against the measure.
According to the website, Ali Shamkhani, a senior aide to Iran’s Supreme Leader, who has been reportedly put in charge of Iran’s nuclear negotiations, had warned that Iran would deliver a “serious and effective response” if European nations pursue the resolution.
