U.S. does not see Iranian nuclear "breakout" soon

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States does not believe Iran will soon achieve a nuclear "breakout" capability, Robert Einhorn, the State Department's senior adviser for non-proliferation and arms control, said on Wednesday.

"We don't see breakout as imminent at this stage," he said in response to a question at a speech organized by the Arms Control Association think tank.
