Iran threatens to restart nuke enrichment program in matter of days

Iran threatens to restart nuke enrichment program in matter of days

"(But) the foundations of the JCPOA (nuclear deal) have been so strong that during these 15 months of pressure. the structure has remained solid".

"We will not be the first to violate the accord but they should definitely know that they will regret it if they violate it", Mr Rouhani told a conference to mark National Nuclear Technology Day in Tehran.

As President Donald Trump considers whether or not to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal ahead of a May deadline, leaders in Tehran are threatening to restart the country's nuclear enrichment program in just a matter of days, The Washington Free Beacon reported on Monday.

In January, Trump announced he is waiving the U.S. sanctions against Iran for the "last time".

"The people and the government didn't surrender to December's manufactured social crisis, nor will they succumb to an engineered economic and information crisis in April", Hesamodin Ashna, a senior adviser to Rouhani, said in a tweet.

"Maybe in name sanctions have been lifted, but in practice countries that can work with us still see Iran as high risk and transferring money is still a big problem", said Reza, who runs a foreign-exchange business in Tehran and did not want to give his family name because of sensitivities of speaking with foreign media in Iran.

"Iran can even show more extensive progress in other parts of its nuclear activities to go beyond the previous levels", Iran's state-controlled Fars News Agency reported Salehi as warning.




France, Britain and Germany are seeking to persuade their European Union partners to back new sanctions on Iran, mainly on its missile programme, as a way to persuade Trump to stick with the nuclear deal that put curbs on Iran's nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief.

Rouhani said on Monday that Iran's missile capabilities were purely defensive.

Rouhani also said Iran will launch new facilities in the Fordow enrichment establishments in central Iran.

"We will produce any weapons necessary to defend our country in such a volatile region".

Iran's currency hit a new low on Monday on continued concerns over a return of crippling sanctions if Trump carries out his threat.

On Sunday, Iran's currency fell more than six percent against the United States dollar, hitting another record-low, as the exchange rate spiraled downwards driven by fears of the USA withdrawal.
