US official: Iran's breakout time to nuclear weapon is 'really short'
Biden administration official says Iran's breakout time to producing enough enriched uranium for one nuclear weapon is "really short" and alarming.

The United States believes Iran's breakout time to producing enough highly enriched uranium for one nuclear weapon is now "really short" and alarming, a senior Biden administration official told reporters on Friday, according to Reuters. The official, who was speaking on condition of anonymity, did not have a precise time for the breakout, which has been estimated to be a matter of months.

"But it's really short. It is unacceptably short," the official said, calling it "alarming". The official’s comments came as the remaining parties to the 2015 Iran nuclear met in Vienna to adjourn the talks on salvaging the deal. The talks in Vienna resumed last week after a five-month pause following the election of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi.
