Iran has announced it will resume high-level enrichment of uranium if world powers do not keep their promises under a 2015 nuclear agreement.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday the remaining signatories – the United Kingdom, France, Germany, China and Russia – had 60 days to implement their promises to protect Iran’s oil and banking sectors from US sanctions.
He also announced Iran would roll back some of its commitments under the deal. The latest move came exactly one year since US President Donald Trump withdrew his country from the historic accord. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said the situation surrounding the fate of the nuclear accord has been complicated by the “irresponsible behaviour” of Washington.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a visit to London on Wednesday his country would wait and see Tehran’s next move.
