Kathmandu,July 7(Nepal Niti)-Iran has announced Iran will break a limit set on uranium enrichment, in breach of the landmark 2015 nuclear deal. Deputy foreign minister Abbas Araqchi said Iran still wanted to salvage the deal but blamed European countries for failing to live up to their own commitments. The US withdrew from the agreement in 2018.
The Iranian announcement marks the latest breach of the accord. In May, Iran stepped up to its production of enriched uranium, which can be used to make fuel for reactors but also for nuclear weapons. Iran has strongly denied that it has any intention of building nuclear weapons.
