Iran’s president has issued a direct threat, claiming his country is capable of restarting its nuclear program within hours.

Hassan Rouhani says it could be done “in an hour and a day” if Washington continues with “threats and sanctions” against Iran.

He says that once restarted, the program could quickly be brought to a much more advanced level than it was back in 2015, when Iran signed the nuclear deal with world powers. That agreement capped Iran’s uranium enrichment levels in return for the lifting of international sanctions.

Rouhani’s remarks to lawmakers on Tuesday offered no evidence of Iran’s capabilities but are likely to ratchet up pressure further with the Trump administration.

Rouhani also tempered his threat, adding that Iran seeks to remain loyal to its commitments under the deal.

    Iran is capable of restarting its nuclear program, it could be done “in an hour and a day” according to Hassan Rouhani!

    Then it’s not strange that Washington continues with sanctions, Washington was aware that Iran could quickly be brought to a much more advanced level than it was back in 2015.

    Idle threat. IMHO Iran never stopped their nuclear program and no “deal” or UN scrutiny is going to stop it. I am more inclined to believe that Iran is assisting Hezbollah build factories in Lebanon for weapons manufacturing and more inclined to believe that Russia is assisting with a smuggling operation to assist in the purchase and repair of Russian weapons going to Iran.

    1. Iran’s leaders are such drama queens.
