News: Nuclear Program
The United States will not waver from its course of maximum pressure against the Iranian regime, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said Monday, as tensions rise and the U.S.-brokered nuclear deal between the regime and world powers unravels.
Vice President Pence vowed that the U.S. "will never allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon."
The Iranian regime on Monday began enriching uranium beyond the 3.67% purity limit set by its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, according to the United Nations nuclear watchdog.
“Director General Yukiya Amano has informed the IAEA Board of Governors that Agency inspectors on 8 July verified that Iran is enriching uranium above 3.67% U-235,” an International Atomic Energy Agency spokesman said, referring to the fissile uranium-235 isotope.
Britain warned Iran's regime on Sunday to "immediately stop and reverse all activities" violating the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.
The British Foreign Office issued its warning after Tehran's announcement on Sunday that it would break the 3.67% uranium enrichment limit set in the pact.
