Iran Halts Some Commitments Under 2015 Nuclear Deal

Washington Times

Iran has officially stopped some commitments under a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers following an order from its national security council, Al Jazeera reported.

Under the nuclear deal, Tehran was allowed to produce low-enriched uranium with a 300kg limit, and produce heavy water with a stock capped around 130 tonnes. 

An official in the country's atomic energy body told ISNA that Iran has no limit from now for the production of enriched uranium and heavy water.

In a speech broadcast on national television on May 8, Rouhani said Iran wanted to negotiate new terms with remaining partners in the deal, but acknowledged the situation was dire.

"We felt that the nuclear deal needs a surgery and the painkiller pills of the last year have been ineffective," Rouhani said. "This surgery is for saving the deal, not destroying it."
