Iran Has No Nuclear Option

Iran Has No Nuclear Option

On Monday, Iran revealed that it had breached the limit set on its stockpile of low-enriched uranium, allowing it to exceed the 300 kilograms agreed under the deal.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Wednesday Iran plans to increase its level of uranium enrichment beyond a limit set under a 2015 nuclear deal, and do so on Sunday or later until it reaches the levels the country deems necessary. Trump has misread Iran, the speaker of the country's parliament Ali Larijani said Tuesday, in comments carried by the state news agency. "We put aside this commitment and will increase enrichment as we please".

The move, she said, was aimed at increasing pressure on European powers, China and Russian Federation to compensate Iran for the impact of US sanctions reimposed by Trump after he renounced the deal. "He announced that Iran would swell its nuclear stockpile "in any amount that we want, any amount that is required, we will take over 3.67", Rouhani told a cabinet meeting in Tehran, referring the 3.67% enrichment figure specified in the deal".

The head of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards said on Wednesday the enemy - an allusion to Washington - was anxious about the prospect of war and was focused instead on an economic conflict, according to the semi-official Fars news agency. On Wednesday, Iran marked the shootdown by the U.S. Navy of an Iranian passenger jet in 1988, a mistake that killed 290 people and shows the danger of miscalculation in the current crisis.


The NPT seeks "to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament....

We regret this decision by Iran, which calls into question an essential instrument of nuclear non-proliferation", the foreign ministers said.

As we have shown in political, worldwide and field areas, Iran is an important actor in global level and we won't let any side to talk with Iranian nation except with a respectful language.

300 kg of uranium enriched to 3.67% is enough to be used in power stations, but not enough to develop a nuclear weapon.


Iran's breaching its uranium stockpile limit, and threat to enrich to weapons-grade levels, now risk alienating its last few partners in the world. Washington also blames Iran for attacks on ships in the Gulf, which Tehran denies. Trump is not Obama, and the last thing Iran would want is a direct military confrontation with the U.S. It aimed to extend the time Tehran would need to produce a nuclear bomb, if it chose to, from roughly two months to a year.

Iran has sought to pressure the remaining signatories - China, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Russian Federation - to save the deal.

Since then the United States has ratcheted up sanctions, which Tehran says means it can not get any of the economic benefits from curbing its nuclear program that are outlined in the deal.
