U.N. nuclear agency: Iran poised to expand nuke work

By The Associated Press

— The U.N. nuclear agency says Iran is poised to double output of higher-enriched uranium that can be turned easily into the core of a nuclear warhead.

The International Atomic Energy Agency’s finding is contained in a report it circulated Friday among the agency’s 35-nation board.

The report says Iran is technically ready within days to ramp up its production of 20 percent enriched uranium at its Fordo facility.

That would double its present output and cut in half the time it would take to acquire enough of the substance to make a nuclear weapon.

The report confirms information given to the AP on Thursday by diplomats accredited to the International Atomic Energy Agency.

Iran denies any interest in nuclear arms.
