3:03 am
europe were to deliver the promised sanctions relief dorsetshire bari has more from . another step back from the 2015 nuclear deal but a step forward for iran's nuclear program the latest phase of iran reducing its commitments further to the agreement with 6 world powers is its most serious and technical one yet. more we started lifting limitations on our research and development imposed by the deal it will include development of more rapid and advanced centrifuges we have the capacity to enrich uranium beyond 20 percent but we don't have any plans to do so for the time being this is where the more advanced centrifuges have already been installed as a friday than a tense nuclear facility is now capable of enriching uranium at a much faster speed since the united states withdrew from nuclear pact in 2018 and imposed a series of harsh sanctions iran has been reducing its commitments to the deal
3:04 am
president has and rouhani announced this latest phase on wednesday but said all these changes were reversible when and if the european countries who signed up to the deal up held their end of the agreement that would include protecting iran's oil exports from u.s. sanctions. what you are saying is that they can go back to that but they really don't want to and one parent trying to do is to get some more leverage and these are the. 3 models of the u.s. assume that this negotiation and the stark support to create with my current models a way to honor partners lead to somewhere the acting chief of the united nations nuclear watchdog well head to teheran on sunday for talks with the reigning foreign minister mohammad javad zarif iran has given britain france and germany and the other 60 days to see if they can do anything to salvage this deal and the head of iran's atomic energy organization has told al-jazeera that after the next phase
