EU calls on Iran to stop any steps against nuclear deal

The European Union is “extremely concerned” about Iran’s announcement on enriching uranium above internationally-approved levels and calls on Tehran to “stop and reverse” any action that goes against the world powers’ nuclear deal with the Islamic republic.

A Kremlin spokesman says that Russia is concerned about growing tensions between Tehran and the U.S. over Iran’s unraveling nuclear deal with world powers.

Dmitry Peskov, Russia’s presidential press secretary, said that Russia is concerned by Iran’s announcement it is raising its uranium enrichment levels, furthering its breach of the 2015 nuclear deal.

Peskov said that the Kremlin had warned that President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the U.S. from the deal would entail negative consequences to global security. He called on all parties to use diplomacy to overcome the crisis.

Iran has given the remaining signatories to the deal — which include the U.S. and Russia — 60 days to find a way around crippling U.S. sanctions, or it says it will take further steps away from the deal.
