Iran outlines partial withdrawal from 2015 nuclear deal

Iran to announce partial withdrawal from nuclear deal — Reports

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani is reportedly set to announce ways the Islamic Republic will react to continued US pressure after President Donald Trump pulled America from Tehran's nuclear deal with world powers.

In this photo released by the official website of the office of the Iranian Presidency, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani speaks in a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Iran, May 8, 2019.

Unless European signatories of the agreement deliver on their promise to protect the Iranian economy from unilateral sanctions reimposed by the U.S. over the last 12 months, Iran would take further action, President Hassan Rouhani said in a televised address.

The United Nations' nuclear watchdog says Iran has continued to comply with the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, which saw it limit its enrichment of uranium in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.

Mr Rouhani said Tehran will give 60 days for signatories to return to negotiating financial and oil deals.

Iran will reportedly soon announce reciprocal measures in the face of the Donald Trump administration's revoking of sanctions waivers allowing nuclear cooperation with Iran.

"Iran's future actions will be fully within the [nuclear deal] from which the Islamic Republic will not withdraw", Zarif said, according to state media.

Here's where Iran's nuclear program and the unravelling accord now stand.

He made the comments in a live address on Wednesday, the anniversary of President Donald Trump pulling America out of the accord.

Tensions between Tehran and Washington has flared up in recent months, following US decisions to designate Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) a "foreign terrorist organization" and to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

So far, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna has confirmed in a series of reports that Iran has upheld its side of the bargain by significantly reducing its nuclear activities.

China said the agreement should be implemented and called on all sides to avoid an escalation of tensions. No significant US forces have so far withdrawn from Syria. But last week it said it would now end the waivers to reduce Iran's crude exports to zero.

President Hassan Rouhani is also set to send a letter to the five countries´ heads of state in order to "clearly emphasise how much Iran has commanded patience regarding the JCPOA", IRNA reported.

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".

European Union officials were privately informed of the extent of Iran's response at a meeting on Tuesday.

However, Rouhani warned of a "strong reaction" if European leaders instead seek to impose more sanctions on Iran via the U.N. Security Council.

Iran also mothballed many already-built centrifuges as part of the deal.

Iran's state-run Press TV earlier said: "The deployment seems to be a "regularly scheduled" one by the U.S. Navy, and Bolton has just tried to talk it up".
