Britain Warns Iran’s Regime to Stop Violating the Nuclear Deal

Written by Shahriar Kia 

Britain warned Iran’s regime on Sunday to “immediately stop and reverse all activities” violating the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

The British Foreign Office issued its warning after Tehran’s announcement on Sunday that it would break the 3.67% uranium enrichment limit set in the pact.

Britain’s Press Association quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying: “While the UK remains fully committed to the deal, Iran must immediately stop and reverse all activities inconsistent with its obligations.”

The spokesman said Britain is coordinating with other countries that are part of the accord “regarding the next steps under the terms of the deal, including a joint commission.”

The Iranian regime said on Sunday it is fully prepared to enrich uranium at any level and with any amount, in further violation of the nuclear deal.

In a news conference broadcast live, senior regime officials said Tehran would keep reducing its commitments every 60 days unless signatories of the pact moved to protect it from U.S. sanctions.

The Iranian regime’s President Hassan Rouhani declared last Wednesday, July 3, that as of July 7 the regime will increase its enrichment of uranium to any amount it wants and will recommence activities at its heavy water reactor in Arak.

Commenting on Rouhani’s announcement, the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) Mohammad Mohaddessin said: “The events of recent days and Rouhani’s announcement today show clearly that the mullahs’ regime never abandoned its nuclear weapons projects and it is trying to find an opportunity to pursue it once again. As the Iranian Resistance has repeatedly stated, the regime must not be allowed to carry out any uranium enrichment and its nuclear projects must be entirely dismantled.”
