The White House is worried Iran could develop a nuclear weapon in weeks, press secretary Jen Psaki said on Tuesday. "Yes it definitely worries us," Psaki said, according to Reuters. She added that the time needed for Iran to produce a nuclear weapon is down from about a year. Her comments came hours after Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that Iran has accelerated its nuclear program.

Iran has gradually scaled back its compliance with the 2015 deal, in response to former US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement in May of 2018, but has held several rounds of indirect talks with the US on a return to the agreement. Negotiations nearly reached completion last month before Moscow demanded that its trade with Iran be exempted from Western sanctions over Ukraine, throwing the process into disarray.
