Iran officially stops some commitments under nuclear deal - report
“Stopping programs related to compliance with the ceiling for production of enriched uranium as well as the unlimited production of heavy water at the Arak facility are seriously pursued,” an unnamed official from the Atomic Energy Agency said, adding that further details will be announced later.
However, he insisted that the changes don’t violate the JCPOA nuclear deal.
Tehran announced its decision last week, giving world powers 60 days to resolve the issue with the US, which last year unilaterally withdrew from the accord and re-imposed sanctions on the Gulf state. If Iran is not protected from American sanctions, it has vowed to start enriching uranium to a higher level.Also on rt.com ‘There won’t be any war’ between Iran & US – Khamenei
Under the nuclear deal signed between Iran and world powers in 2015, Tehran agreed to limit its nuclear activities and was allowed to produce limited amounts of low-enriched uranium and heavy water. The Iranian official said that Tehran is no longer imposing limits on itself for the production of enriched uranium and heavy water.
