Iran could now possess enough uranium to build a nuclear bomb within the year, according to two top Pentagon officials.
Iran's nuclear chief, Ali Akbar Salehi, said Wednesday Tehran has produced enough enriched uranium for a medical research reactor.
The move comes despite the United Nation's demand that Iran stop its nuclear program.
Meanwhile, Turkey's foreign minister of foreign affairs claims that Iran might be willing to restart talks.
"We don't want to see sanctions. It will affect us. It will affect the region," Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told reporters Wednesday.
But some European diplomats say the Islamic nation is just trying to delay more sanctions.
