US National Intelligence Director warns Iran is close to having a nuclear weapon

Daniel Coats, the Director of US National Intelligence, said that Iran will probably very soon be capable of using a nuclear weapon that could pose a grave danger to the United States and Europe. 

In a briefing with the United States’ senate, he said that the Islamic Republic is in breach of several UN resolutions in terms of its ballistic missile program.He also pointed out that Iran is consistently making improvements to the range of its ballistic missiles and is making advances with their power too. He said it is clear that Iran wants a nuclear capable ballistic missile that can reach the United States.


Iran Heading in the Same Direction as North Korea

Last week, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA) was going to be reviewed and condemned Iran’s ongoing violations and nefarious acts. He said that the main objective of the nuclear deal is being ignored and vowed that the Trump administration would not be following in the footsteps of the previous President who let Iran run riot. “The [nuclear deal] fails to achieve the objective of a non-nuclear Iran; it only delays their goal of becoming a nuclear state. The Trump administration has no intention of passing the buck to a future administration on Iran.”


Iran's Request for Yellowcake Should Be Denied

The Iranian regime is renewing its bid for more uranium. It original request was authorised by President Obama (who spent most of his term appeasing the Iranian regime), but was eventually blocked by the United Kingdom. Now Iran is said to be planning to ask again. 

The United States must declare that it will not provide approval until there is evidence that the regime has not been causing trouble. To do otherwise would be to continue along the lines of President Obama.


Iran and North Korea Nuclear Cooperation

Some experts believe that Iran is progressing towards a nuclear weapon with the help of North Korea. 

Despite the Iran nuclear deal signed in 2015, which was supposed to put a pause on the country’s nuclear development, it has been pointed out that the restrictions concerning delivery systems such as nuclear-capable ballistic missiles have not been clearly defined. Nor has Iran’s transfer of nuclear technology to other countries.
