Iran may launch advanced enrichment program
An Iranian lawmaker says the country may launch an advanced enrichment program in case Washington continues to ignore its commitments under last year’s nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries, including the United States.
Spokesman for the Iranian Parliament’s Presiding Board Behrouz Nemati told IRIB on Tuesday that the US reneging on its promises under the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), runs counter to the deal.
“The JCPOA is a comprehensive collection and if the US does not fully implement it, we will respond in kind,” he added.
He said US officials claim that they have fulfilled their obligations but this is not supported by their actions and they should not act in a way that their words differ from their deeds.
