Reports claim that Iran just quadrupled its production of enriched uranium, and those claims were confirmed by a spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization.
Tehran claims to have stepped up their program in response to the US sanctions blocking export of the material to Russia in exchange for unprocessed yellowcake uranium. The US also stopped Iran’s the sale of heavy water to Oman, which is used to cool weapons-grade plutonium reactors.
