Sure, and it wouldn't be a concern except for the above and the fact that they've enriched to 20% well beyond what they need for their medical reactor.
So they are further along than that teenager here in the US got. It isn't hard to throw a slow neutron source into a Uranium Arrangement and detonate it. It has always been the refinement of fissionable Uranium. We didn't even test the Uranium bomb in WW 2 before use. It was that simple. After all the original work was done under Northwestern University in the 30's.
Even a superstitious man has certain inalienable rights. He has a right to harbor and indulge his imbecilities as long as he pleases. . . He has a right to argue for them as eloquently as he can, in season and out of season. He has a right to teach them to his children. But certainly he has no right to be protected against the free criticism of those who do not hold them. He has no right to demand that they be treated as sacred. He has no right to preach them without challenge." -H.L. Mencken
