US secretary warns Iran could collect enough material for nuclear bomb in weeks

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says Iran is months away from amassing enough material to build a nuclear bomb — a timeframe that could be reduced to “a matter of weeks” if the Islamic Republic further expands its violations of the nuclear deal with world powers.

Blinken’s comments come in an interview with NBC News.
