Israeli minister: Iran is weeks away from nuclear red line

Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz said Monday that in just a few weeks, Iran will reach the red line set by Israel for its nuclear development. By Israel’s reckoning, Iran has accumulated 200 kilograms of enriched uranium. With 250 kilograms, Tehran can easily bridge the gap to 90 percent weapons grade enrichment. In the minister’s view, Iran is planning to reach the capacity for manufacturing 30 nuclear bombs per year.
