IAEA: Iran Has Increased Uranium Enrichment

June 12, 2019

Episode Notes:

The head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed Iran has indeed increased its production of enriched uranium. The IAEA's finding follows from Iran's announcement last month that it would suspend some commitments in retaliation for sanctions reinstated by the US.

Eric Brewer, Deputy Director and Fellow at the Project on Nuclear Issues at the Center for Strategic and International Study (CSIS), joins the Warcast to discuss the finding and what it does (and doesn't imply).
