Assessing Iran's Nuclear Capabilities


Assessing Iran's Nuclear Capabilities

Iran is two to eight years away from being able to assemble a military nuclear explosive, according to two nuclear energy experts speaking at briefings sponsored by AAAS. Speaking at the Rayburn House Office Building and later at AAAS headquarters, James Acton of King's College London and Jeffrey Lewis of the New America Foundation evaluated Iran's potential to build a nuclear weapon and discussed the effectiveness of international efforts to rein in its bomb-building ambitions. The briefings were sponsored by the AAAS's Center for Science, Technology and Security Policy.
