Iran to present details on latest nuclear move Saturday

Thu, Sep. 5, 2019
CAIRO – 5 September 2019: In response to sweeping US sanctions, Tehran said Thursday it will announce details Saturday of its latest scaling back of its commitments under a 2015 nuclear deal.

President Hassan Rouhani has said that the new steps included abandoning all limits set by the 2015 deal to Iran's nuclear research and development.

Moreover, the EU has urged Iran to reverse scaleback from nuclear deal.

"These activities we consider are inconsistent with the JCPOA (the nuclear accord). And in this context we urge Iran to reverse these steps and refrain from further measures that undermine the nuclear deal," European Commission spokesman Carlos Martin Ruiz de Gordejuela told a media briefing in Brussels.

In related news, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for more international pressure on Iran after it ended limits to its nuclear research and development.

“This is not the time to hold talks with Iran; this is the time to increase the pressure on Iran,” Netanyahu said.
