A new assessment released by US intelligence concludes that Iran is boosting its nuclear capabilities but is not pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. According to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s assessment, Iran has “undertaken research and development activities that would bring it closer to producing the fissile material needed” to produce a nuclear weapon. However, despite accelerating its nuclear programme since 2020, it is still not yet capable of producing a weapon. “Iran is not currently undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activities that would be necessary to produce a testable nuclear device,” the assessment notes.
