Iran will no longer abide by nuclear deal limits

AKIPRESS.COM - Iran will no longer abide by any of the limits set out in the 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA), Iranian state TV said on Sunday, despite calls from Germany, France and Britain to maintain the landmark accord, DW reports.

Tehran will continue to cooperate with the United Nations nuclear watchdog (IAEA), but will take steps to distance itself from the restrictions of the deal, according to the statement from the Iranian government.

Six nations, including Germany, agreed the landmark nuclear deal. Iran says there is now no limit on their uranium enrichment capacity.

US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Tehran, putting the deal at risk of falling apart. The Iranian government spokesman said Sunday's step could be reversed if the US lifts the current sanctions.
