Iranian Political Analyst Emad Abshenas: Iran Can Prepare Everything It Needs To Build a Nuclear Bomb; Final Assembly Would Only Take Minutes Or Hours

Iranian political analyst Emad Abshenas, the Editor-in-Chief of Iran Diplomatic, said in a November 9, 2021 interview on Alghad TV (UAE) that Iran has the ability to cross the "red line" and acquire everything necessary for the construction of a nuclear bomb, so that final assembly would only take minutes or hours. Abshenas added that Iran's current government is pleased with the renewal of the nuclear talks because it has a "strong hand," unlike during the Rouhani governments' JCPOA negotiations.

Emad Abshenas: "[The U.S.] does not want Iran to obtain a nuclear bomb, and Iran does not want one. However, today Iran can cross the so-called 'red line' and possesses everything that it needs to manufacture a nuclear bomb, without actually manufacturing one. Then, it would take only minutes, or hours, to assemble the bomb.


"I believe than Iran will have a much more powerful hand in the coming meeting and the meeting that will follow. The Raisi government is pleased with these negotiations, because it enters the negotiations with a strong hand, unlike the Rouhani government that came to the negotiations table only after it had lost everything."
