Iran will need two weeks to develop nuclear weapons - Pentagon

Oct 1, 2023

The Pentagon has said Iran has enough resources to build a nuclear device in less than two weeks.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the annual report of the US Department of Defense.

According to the US military, if the Tehran regime decides it needs nuclear weapons, it will take no more than two weeks to build a nuclear device.

"According to available estimates, Iran is not engaged in the implementation of a program to create nuclear weapons in the near future, but it has the ability to produce enough fissile material to create a nuclear device in less than two weeks," the Pentagon says.

In addition, the United States believes that Iran is not in compliance with its chemical weapons control obligations because it has not provided a full declaration of its chemical weapons production facilities, as required by current agreements.

In general, the Pentagon is concerned that Iran is developing an offensive nerve agent.
