Iran back to high enrichment 'in 5 days' if US quits nuclear dealIran can resume high-level uranium enrichment within five days if the United States tears up the nuclear deal, the head of its Atomic Energy Organisation said Tuesday. “If we make a determination, at most in five days we can start 20 percent enrichment in Fordo (nuclear plant),” Ali Akbar Salehi said in an interview with state broadcaster IRIB. “Of course we would not like such a thing to happen as we made a lot of effort to achieve the JCPOA (nuclear deal),” he added.
