U.S. concerned over safety at Iran’s nuclear plant

The U.S. has intensified its covert intelligence gathering operations at Iran’s Bushehr nuclear plant over the past two months due to concerns over safety hazards at the plant, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday, Dec. 3. The report said statements made by U.S. officials revealed that there were problems at the plant with the storage of enriched plutonium, and that U.S. nuclear experts were worried about safety and security at the plant because they believe that Iran’s leaders were using the facility to advance their nuclear weapons program.  According to the report, spying on the plant is routinely carried out by the U.S. using unmanned aerial vehicles operating in the Persian Gulf area, among other methods. The sudden disassembly of fuel rods at Bushehr two months ago was said to be viewed as a warning signal in the U.S. administration, which has recently been focusing more on activities at the Natanz and Qom nuclear facilities.
