Nuclear monitor confirms Iran exceeds uranium stockpile limit

The international organization that monitors Iran’s compliance with the nuclear deal confirmed Monday that Tehran has exceeded the amount of low-enriched uranium it is allowed to stockpile.

“In response to media inquiries, we can confirm that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano today informed the Board of Governors that the Agency verified on 1 July that Iran’s total enriched uranium stockpile exceeded 300kg of UF6 enriched up to 3.67% U-235 (or the equivalent in different chemical forms),” the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement.

The IAEA’s confirmation comes after Iranian state media reported that Iran had breached the 300 kilogram limit.

The verification that Iran has breached the nuclear deal for the first time adds even greater uncertainty to an already volatile situation between the United States and Iran. Less than two weeks ago, President Trump called off a military strike against Iran at the last minute that was meant to respond to it shooting down a U.S. drone.

1. Why wouldn't they?

The guy that is supposedly so damn good at making deals has Iran on a path to having a nuclear weapon much sooner thanks to his efforts. So, so much winning.

2. Trump pulled out of the nuclear agreement brokered by President Obama.

What incentive does Iran have to abide by it now?
