Nuclear deal

On Wednesday, Iran announced that there were officially no commitments during the 201

5 nuclear power agreement following an order from its National Security Council, the ISNA news agency reported.

Last week, Iran announced China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom of its decision to abolish some commitments under the nuclear agreement, one year after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the agreements and resumed sanctions.

Underneath the nuclear technology, Tehran produced low-enriched uranium with a 300kg limit, producing heavy water with a stock of about 130 tonnes.

Tehran could send excess quantities out of the country for storage or sale.

An official in the country's atomic energy body told ISNA that Iran has no limit to now for the production of enriched uranium and heavy water.

Iran's first move does not seem to have violated the nuclear agreement yet. But Iran has warned that, unless world powers protect their finances from US sanctions within 60 days, it would begin to enrich the uranium at a higher level.

In a broadcast on national television on May 8, Ryhani said that Iran wanted to negotiate new terms for remaining partners in the agreement, but admitted that the situation was dire.

"We felt that the nuclear contract needs an operation and in the past year painkillers have been ineffective," Rouhani said. "This operation is to save the deal, not destroy it."

The European Union and the Foreign Ministers of Germany, France and the UK said they were still bound to the deal but would not accept the ultimatum from Tehran. The deal also attracts the purity that Iran can enrich uranium by 3.67 percent, well below 90 percent of gun quality. It is also well below the 20% level that Iran enriched uranium before the agreement.

"Orchestrating Conflict"

On Tuesday, Iranian officials accused "hardliners" of the United States and elsewhere of trying to orchestrate an event that would block tensions with Tehran.

The incident happened 140 km south of the Hormuz route, through which about one-third of all oil traded over the sea passes.
