Iran has quadrupled production of low enriched uranium and will exceed the limit it is allowed to stockpile in just 10 days, according to a spokesman for the Iranian atomic agency. The country says it is doing so because the U.S. has reneged on its commitment to lift sanctions, leaving it unable to export excess uranium. Sanctions against Iran were removed as part of the historic nuclear deal signed by then President Barack Obama in 2015, but reinstated by President Trump in May of last year. The news is the latest blow in the ongoing tensions between the U.S. and Iran.
