Iranian Foreign Minister said:
“As you could hear from the news, these days the designers and proponents of the failed policy of maximum pressure against the courageous Iranian people are trying to take advantage of the last days of Trump to raise tensions and destroy the atmosphere that has been created in order to lift tyrannical sanctions,” The Iranian minister said.
In 2015, Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) with the United States, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United Kingdom. The agreement demanded Iran to scale back its nuclear program and critically downgrade its uranium reserves in exchange for sanctions relief.
Since Trump’s withdrawal from JCPOA, tensions between the US and Iran have escalated further, with Iran announcing that it would no longer follow the 2015 nuclear deal.
Iranian parliament passed a bill, named” The strategic measure for the removal of sanctions,” which pointed toward renewing the nation’s atomic research program in the wake of the assassination of Iranian atomic physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, the Tasnim news office wrote about Sunday.
The researcher, who was the top of the Iranian Defense Ministry’s nuclear development, died after a shooter’s assault on Friday in the town of Absard in the Tehran district.
The bill visualizes expanding the uranium improvement level to 20 percent or more — such uranium is viewed as a weapon-grade one.
Right now, Iran is enhancing uranium at in excess of 4 percent, while the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) covered the level at 3.67 percent immaculateness.
