JERUSALEM (AP) — Russia’s foreign minister is expressing little concern over U.S. claims that Iran has enough uranium to make two nuclear bombs within two years, saying the information is not new.

Speaking in Israel on Tuesday, Sergey Lavrov responded to a new CIA assessment that Iran could produce the bombs by further enriching uranium it already has.

Lavrov said the International Atomic Energy Agency has already said Iran has 2,000 kilograms of uranium enriched to a low level, enough for two bombs if further enriched.

Lavrov said Russia hopes Iran would agree to stop uranium enrichment in return for receiving nuclear fuel from Russia.

Lavrov’s Israeli counterpart, Avigdor Lieberman, said Iran’s nuclear program posed the “biggest threat” to Mideast stability.
