Iran is capable of making a nuclear weapon, a senior adviser to the supreme leader boasted on Sunday, claiming the government just has not made a decision on whether or not to build one.

Speaking to Al Jazeera Arabic, Kamal Kharrazi explained that “in a few days we were able to enrich uranium up to 60% and we can easily produce 90% enriched uranium… Iran has the technical means to produce a nuclear bomb but there has been no decision by Iran to build one”.

Iran has long said that it is not seeking to build a nuclear weapon and that its ever-expansive capabilities are for civilian use only.

The comments from the senior official come on the back of US President Joe Biden’s first trip to the Middle East last week, which from Israel to Saudi Arabia was primarily focused on a collective attempt to thwart threats coming from Iran.
