Iran's Rouhani: Tehran is now enriching more uranium than before Obama-era nuclear deal – Fox News, Fox News

IranianPresidentHassan Rouhanisaid in a televised speech Thursday that Tehran is now enriching more uranium than before it agreed to the2019 nuclear dealwith the world powers.


“We are enriching more uranium before the deal was reached,” Rouhani said, according to the Associated Press. “Pressure has increased on Iran but we continue to progress. ”

“ We have no limits on the nuclear file, and we are increasing enrichment every day, ”he added, according toa tweetfrom the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen Channel, which was publishing updates from the speech.

The remarks come after Britain, France, and Germany, which signed the Joint Integrated Plan of Action (JCPOA) in 2019, sent a letter to the European Union’s foreign policy chief on Tuesday saying that they are triggering its “dispute mechanism” – which begins a process that could result in the UN restoring sanctions it previously lifted under the deal.


Trump withdrew US support from the deal in MayPayeerand has since gradually reimposed sanctions on Iran. As part of its response to the U.S. airstrike that killed topIranian Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Iran announced that it would no longer respect the limits set on how many centrifuges it can use to enrich uranium.
