MIDDLE EAST (VINnews) — The Iranian terror regime may be dangerously close to testing a nuclear weapon, according to a chilling report in the Jerusalem Post, citing multiple European intelligence agencies.

One of its main backers appears to be the Biden administration, which has allowed Iran to openly develop nukes, while using stall tactics under the guise of ongoing “negotiations”.

In addition to preparing to test nukes, the Post said the regime “has sought to obtain illicit technology for its active atomic weapons program, according to a series of shocking European intelligence reports released in 2023.” The report also alleges that Iran has continuously violated the Obama nuclear deal.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) published translations of the documents on its website, based on findings from the Netherlands, Sweden and Germany.

The Netherlands General and Intelligence Security Service (AVID) said that Iran’s fast-moving development of weapons-grade uranium “brings the option of a possible Iranian first nuclear test closer.”

According to that report, “Last year, Iran proceeded with its nuclear program. The country continues to increase stocks of 20% and 60% enriched uranium. By means of centrifuges, this can be used for further enrichment to the 90% enriched uranium needed for a nuclear weapon.”

The AVID report also said “Iran is further ignoring the agreements that were made within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). And by deploying increasingly more sophisticated uranium enrichment centrifuges it is enlarging its enrichment capacity.”

Israeli Brigadier General Yossi Kuperwasser, an expert on Iran, told the Post “Iran is evidently committed to its nuclear weapons plan.”

Kuperwasser continued “The European intelligence reports describe covert Iranian efforts to shorten the breakout time to a nuclear arsenal by illegally acquiring equipment and knowledge from various European countries.”

He also said that the reports may be understating the facts. “The reports only expose part of the Iranian efforts in Europe, and it would be wise to assume that many of those efforts have remained clandestine. Iran is likely interpreting Western policy towards it as a sign of weakness since European and US actions against Iran (have) been passive and unintimidating.”

He said the US striving to reach a nuclear deal with Iran are “rewarding Iran with a new ‘understanding’ and would only motivate Iran to continue and enhance its efforts to obtain the required components of nuclear weapons.
