Iran announces partial withdrawal from nuke deal

Prime News, International and National, Tehran, May 9:- Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani in a televised address on Wednesday has announced that it will partially withdraw from some of the commitments made under the 2015 International Nuclear Deal.

The announcement came after the US unilaterally decided last year to pull out of this commitment completely. The United States has also announced to cancel waivers to countries, including India, who has been purchasing oil from Iran.

Iranian state media says the country will stop curbing its stocks of enriched uranium and the heavy water needed by certain types of the reactor to ensure that nuclear fission can take place.  Iran said the action was being taken because the European Union and others did not have the power to resist US pressure.
