UN watchdog confirms Iran enriching uranium above threshold set in deal

The UN’s nuclear watchdog confirms that Iran has enriched uranium at a level higher than the limit set in a 2015 international pact.

Inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency “on 8 July verified that Iran is enriching uranium above 3.67% U-235,” the IAEA says in a statement hours after Tehran said it had exceeded the agreed cap and reached 4.5% enrichment, in response to the United States withdrawing from the deal last year.
