Iran Accelerates Uranium Enrichment
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief Yukiya Amano spoke out forcefully on Monday, warning about increased tensions between Iran and the US while adding that the Islamic Republic has followed through on a threat to accelerate its production of enriched uranium. “The situation in the region here is highly explosive and extremely serious,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas Maas told a news conference alongside Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in Teheran on Monday. “A dangerous escalation of existing tensions can also lead to a military escalation.”

“Reducing tension is only possible through stopping the economic war by America,” Zarif said during his own comments. “Those who wage such wars cannot expect to remain safe.” However, he added that “Tehran will cooperate with EU signatories of the (JCPOA nuclear) deal to save it.” He also lashed out at Israel, blaming Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for provoking a conflict with his country.
