Tehran confirms it will breach 2015 accord on Thursday and take uranium stocks above limit
Iran has confirmed it will breach the 2015 nuclear deal for the first time by beginning to speed up the enrichment of uranium, taking stocks above permitted limits.
The ultimatum is both an expression of frustration and intended as a spur to the three EU countries that signed the agreement to do more to keep their end of the bargain by increasing trade with Iran.
In July 2015, Iran and a six-nation negotiating group reached a landmark agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action that ended a 12-year deadlock over Tehran’s nuclear programme. The deal, struck in Vienna after nearly two years of intensive talks, limited the Iranian programme, to reassure the rest of the world that it cannot develop nuclear weapons, in return for sanctions relief.
