Iran pulling out of nuclear deal commitment after U.S. strike that killed Soleimani

Iran said Sunday that it was ending its commitment to limit enrichment of uranium as part of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, more fallout from the U.S. strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in May 2018, renewing tensions between the two countries that reached new heights after Friday’s air strike.

Iran’s state television reported Sunday that it will no longer abide by the limits of the deal, which restricted nuclear development in exchange for the easing of crippling economic sanctions.

The agreement placed limits on Tehran’s uranium enrichment, the amount of stockpiled enriched uranium as well as research and development in its nuclear activities.

America’s European allies have attempted to salvage the deal despite Trump’s decision to withdraw and reimpose sanctions, but Iran has gradually reduced its commitments and now leaves the deal in tatters.

The country’s foreign ministry said earlier Sunday that recent events meant it would take an even bigger step away from the deal than initially planned.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif confirmed the news on Twitter, stating that there “will no longer be any restriction on number of centrifuges.”

“This step is within JCPOA & all 5 steps are reversible upon EFFECTIVE implementation of reciprocal obligations,” Zarif said.

The foreign minister added that the country will still cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

  1. The Project for a New American Century or PNAC for short, is a neoconservative, war monger think-tank, that was very strong in the late 1990’s, in America.
    It’s members are the people who planned the run up to the illegal Iraq war, under George W Bush. They were members of George W Bush’s cabinet and, administration. They prosecuted the war in Iraq, the way they said they would, years before they did foolow through with their invasion in 2003
    The PNAC neoconservatives included Wolfowitz, Rumsfield, Cheney, Abrams, and Bolton. Pompeo is one of them.
    The PNAC members said 20 years ago, that they were going to attack Iran. They said they would go in and, use tactical nuclear weapons, to get rid of Iran’s reactors in 2004. The United State’s Military, has a first strike nuclear policy.
    The PNAC group, said they would do whatever it takes to vanquish Iran, on the battlefield. It is not a laughing matter or, one could take with a grain of salt. They are deadly serious.

    The Neoconservatives and the Military industrial complex, did exactly what they said they would do in Iraq, in 2003. They illegally invaded iraq and destroyed it. They used a large amount, of depleted uranium munition, there. They devastated the country.
    The american military has Iran surrounded by military bases and, with troops. Donald Trump has little say, in the prosecution of their goals, when the neoconservatives and their main backers, decide to follow through with attacking Iran.
    Every person in america saw what George W Bush’s, puppet masters did in Iraq. Everyone lived through the lies, manipulations, chaos and fear they generated in America, to push their agenda. We lived through the terror alerts, the dysfunctional government the media barage and, all the rest.
    They followed through with their invasions. The rest is history.
    The War-Mongers, have just sent a few thousand troops to Kuwait again, as the did in the run up to the Iraq invasion.
