US President Donald Trump threatened Iran on Wednesday its threats might “come back to bite” after Tehran declared to pass the utmost uranium enhancement level approved by a landmark 2015 nuclear accord.
“Iran has simply issued a New Warning. Rouhani states that they may Enrich Uranium to ‘any quantity we wish’ if there isn’t a new Nuclear Deal,” Trump tweeted, pointing to Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.
“Watch out with the threats, Iran. They’ll come again to bite you like no one has been bitten before!”
Iran is performing on its May 8 threat to suspend elements of the settlement in response to Trump’s reimposition of crippling penalties after withdrawing from it in May final year.
Rouhani mentioned on Wednesday’s decision to pass the enrichment limit was in response to failure by different parties to the deal to maintain up their guarantees and provide Iran relief from sanctions by the United States.
The Iranian chief stated as required by the 2015 accord Tehran eliminated the core of the reactor and stuffed it with cement in January 2016.
“Which means the situation that you just say is harmful and may produce plutonium,” he mentioned, referring to a key element of a nuclear weapon.
Rouhani saved the door open to negotiations, however, saying Iran would once more reduce its stockpile of enhanced Uranium under the 300kg limit set by the nuclear pact if signatories Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China honored their commitments.
