Iran inches closer to weapons grade uranium

Iran is getting closer to weapons-grade uranium -IAEA: Tehran has achieved near-weapons grade uranium, according to a report by the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency seen by Reuters. The nuclear watchdog says that Tehran has now refined the nuclear material to 60% purity, up from 20% in April, in a move that ratchets up tensions with the US and Europe as both sides try to resume talks to revive the 2015 nuclear pact.

Tensions between Turkey and UAE appear to be easing, with the two countries nearing an agreement for a UAE investment in Ankara, Reuters reports Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan as saying following “a rare meeting” with a senior UAE official. “If they continue in a good way with their counterparts, I believe the UAE will make serious investments in our country in a very short time,” Erdogan said, noting that the two specifically discussed the types of investments that could be made in different fields.
