Iran looks poised to begin enriching uranium to a level in excess of that which is permitted under the 2015 nuclear deal. The country says it is not willing to honor its commitment to an agreement that the United States is no longer part of.
Iran has been accumulating, or has been prepared to accumulate, enriched uranium, the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a new report.
The EU has "failed to act on their promises" within the 2015 nuclear deal, said Iran's atomic energy chief. Germany's foreign minister has warned against escalation of the dispute, saying "everyone must act responsibly."
Britain, France, Germany and the EU have issued a joint statement warning Iran to stick to its commitments under the 2015 deal on its nuclear program. Tehran's recent actions and activities were "deeply concerning."
Iran has begun work on advanced centrifuges to boost enriched uranium for its controversial nuclear program. It is the third time in the past few months that Tehran has reduced its commitments under a 2015 nuclear deal.
