Iran Finding Ways to Pursue Nuclear Weapons

Jul 10, 2017

German intelligence reports indicate that Iran is continuing to pursue nuclear weapon’s development. Iran agreed not to pursue development of nuclear weapons in exchange for sanctions relief. Germany is prosecuting three German citizens for supplying Iran with 51 valves that can be used for a heavy water reactor. The valves “can be used to develop plutonium for nuclear weapons.” The report says, “Regardless of the number of national and international sanctions and embargoes, countries like Iran, Pakistan, and North Korea are making efforts to optimize corresponding technology.” Iran is believed to be using Chinese front companies to skirt the sanctions.
