Iran scraps 'some commitments' to nuclear deal

Iran to announce partial withdrawal from nuclear deal — Reports

Iran will claim its announcement, likely to be relayed through a live TV address by Rouhani, falls within sections 26 and 36 of the JCPOA, the deal signed in 2015, which allows Iran to take steps if one party withdraws from the agreement.

According to Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Tehran's backtracking on the agreement was due to external pressure.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an unannounced visit to Iran's neighbor Iraq on Tuesday to discuss the safety of Americans there, and explain US security concerns amid rising Iranian activity.

Rouhani said those signatories - France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China - had been informed in advance of Tehran's move.

The White House announced Sunday evening in a statement that the US was sending the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the "Central Command region" to send a "clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime".

Axios reports that senior Israeli officials said Israel supplied intelligence to the White House on an alleged Iranian plot to attack USA interests in the Persian Gulf. The EU vowed to work on keeping legitimate trade with Iran, together with third countries interested in supporting the JCPOA, including through the special goal payment vehicle "INSTEX", which the EU set up earlier this year to keep trade payments-including oil trade-with Iran open.

Iran's nuclear program actually began with the help of the United States.

However, Rouhani warned of a "strong reaction" if European leaders instead sought to impose more sanctions on Iran via the U.N. Security Council. Rouhani said Iran wanted to negotiate new terms with the remaining partners in the deal, but acknowledged that the situation was dire. Israel never claimed responsibility for the attacks, though Israeli officials have boasted in the past about the reach of the country's intelligence services. "We will continue to fight those who would kill us".

The U.S. last week stopped issuing waivers for countries importing Iranian crude oil, a crucial source of cash for Iran's government.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran does not at the current stage consider itself committed to observing restrictions regarding storing enriched uranium stocks and heavy water stocks", the council said. The aim of the latter is to keep Iran's stockpile of enriched uranium under the 300-kilogram limit set out in the nuclear accord. He added, "We will continue enrichment whether you want to purchase it or not", referring to the arrangement in which Iran exports low-enriched uranium in exchange for natural uranium. However, once a country enriches uranium to around 20%, scientists say the time needed to reach 90% is halved. That's compared to the 22,046 pounds of higher-enriched uranium it once had. Iran has previously enriched to 20%.

Iran has the technical ability to build and operate advanced versions called the IR-2M, IR-4 and IR-6 at a facility in Natanz, but is barred from doing so under the nuclear deal.

The weeks leading up to the anniversary of Trump's withdrawal from the agreement have seen a sharp tightening of US sanctions and an increase in tensions on other fronts.
