According to Tehran’s Atomic Programme-Iran Quadrupled its Uranium-Enrichment Production Capacity. This news came just after U.S President Donald Trump and Iran’s Foreign Minister traded threats and taunts. According to reports, the uranium would be enriched only to the 3.67% limit set under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. This means Iran will soon exceed the stockpile limitations set by the accord. Officials in the United Arab Emirates reported that four oil tankers were damaged.
Yemen rebelled that Iran launched a drone attack on an oil pipeline in Saudi Arabia; US warns airliners flying over Gulf could be misidentified by Iran and attacked. According to IRNA news agency, Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran conveyed that Iran took this step because the United States had ended a program allowing it to exchange enriched uranium to Russia for unprocessed yellowcake uranium, as well as ending the sale of heavy water to Oman.
