Iran's uranium stockpile 'passes limit' set by 2015 nuclear deal
Iran's enriched uranium stockpile has passed the 300kg limit prescribed by the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, according to media reports.
The semi-official Fars agency attributed its Monday report to an unnamed source, who said UN inspectors had recently weighed Iran's stockpile of low-enriched uranium.
Iran, led by president Hassan Rouhani, has vowed to begin enriching its stockpile of uranium to higher levels later this month if world powers fail to negotiate new terms for the nuclear accord following the US decision to withdraw from the agreement and restore crippling sanctions.
European countries have repeatedly urged Iran to abide by the deal.
The unravelling of the landmark nuclear agreement comes amid heightened tensions in the Persian Gulf, where Iranian forces shot down a US drone last month.
