Rouhani: Iran Will Enrich Uranium to 'Any Amount We Want'

Iran’s president warned European partners on Wednesday that Tehran will increase its enrichment of uranium to ''any amount that we want'' beginning on Sunday, putting pressure on them to offer a way around intense U.S. sanctions targeting the country, ''The Washington Post'' reports. 

The comments by President Hassan Rouhani come as tensions remain high between Iran and the U.S. over the deal, which President Donald Trump pulled America from over a year ago.

Iran’s nuclear deal currently bars it from enriching uranium above 3.67%, which is enough for nuclear power plants but far below the 90% needed for weapons.

''In any amount that we want, any amount that is required, we will take over 3.67,'' Rouhani said.

''Our advice to Europe and the United States is to go back to logic and to the negotiating table,” Rouhani added. ''Go back to understanding, to respecting the law and resolutions of the U.N. Security Council. Under those conditions, all of us can abide by the nuclear deal.''
