Iran’s breakout time to a nuclear weapon is now “just a few weeks or less,” White House Press Secretary Jan Psaki told reporters on Tuesday.
Tehran had greatly accelerated its nuclear program after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in 2018 under President Donald Trump, Psaki said during a press briefing.
The rapid progress Iran had made since “definitely worries us,” she said.

Psaki added that the White House briefs Israel “regularly” on the negotiations around a possible return to the deal.
