Iran to Unveil Measures Reducing Commitment to Nuclear Pact on Monday

Iran to Unveil Measures Reducing Commitment to Nuclear Pact on Monday

The Iranian flag flutters in front the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) headquarters in Vienna, Austria March 4, 2019. Iran maintains its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, but the 2015 deal grew out of Western concerns about the program.

President Trump has made it clear that he will never allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons. "The regime's nuclear blackmail must be met with increased worldwide pressure", he said.

"They range from going to 3.68 per cent to any other per cent according to the country's needs", said Kamalvandi.

Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi, said Monday. that Iran will surpass uranium stockpile limits under the JCPOA by June 27.

He also said after June 27 Iran will speed up its uranium enrichment activities beyond 3.67 percent.

In 2015, the Obama administration agreed to lift sanctions on Iran in return for promises that it would reduce its stockpile of uranium and stop trying to build a nuclear bomb.

Monday's announcement that Iran will surpass the uranium-stockpile limit set by its nuclear deal in the next 10 days, follows apparent attacks last week in the Strait of Hormuz on oil tankers, assaults that Washington has blamed on Iran.

"A point to Europeans: if the first step took time to be done, other steps, especially increasing enrichment. need no more than a day or two", said Kamalvandi.

"As for the second stage, we are waiting for the government's decision".

The move further undermines the nuclear pact also signed by Russia, Britain, Germany, China and the European Union, but Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the collapse of the deal would not be in the interests of the region or the world.

Enriched uranium is produced by feeding uranium hexafluoride gas into centrifuges to separate out the most fissile isotope, U-235. Look the other way and hope that a diplomatic breakthrough will arrive before Iran has a stash of weapons-grade uranium?

His comments come in the wake of suspected attacks on oil tankers last week in the region that Washington has blamed on Iran and amid heightened tensions between Iran and the US, a year after President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew America for the nuclear deal.

Gen. Mohammad Hossein Bagheri, the chief of the general staff of Iran's armed forces, denied Tehran was involved in the ship attacks, saying Monday the country only would respond in "an open, strong and severe way" if needed.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said the United Kingdom position remained that it was "almost certain that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard corps attacked the two tankers". Tehran previously gave the European Union an ultimatum to help guard against US sanctions. On Sunday, it published a statement confirming a U.S. Reaper drone was shot down June 6 over Yemen by what it says were Houthi rebels with Iranian assistance.

"There is still time for the Europeans. but the Europeans have expressed indirectly their inability to act".
