Iranian Official Says Country Could Greatly Increase Uranium Enrichment


Iran’s atomic energy agency said on Wednesday a reimposition of sanctions by the United States would be a violation of Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers, adding that the Islamic Republic had the capacity to greatly increase its enrichment of uranium.

US President Donald Trump must decide by mid-January whether to continue the suspension of American sanctions on Iran’s oil exports under the pact, which eased economic pressure on the Tehran regime in exchange for limits on its nuclear program.

The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, said on Monday Tehran might reconsider its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) if the US failed to respect its commitments in the deal.
