The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reported that Iran had increased the number of centrifuge cascades enriching uranium to 60 per cent from one to two. Iran’s diplomatic spokesperson maintained that “Iran’s remedial reduction of its JCPOA commitments has been done according to mechanisms within the 2015 nuclear deal”, adding: “Iran will move forward with its peaceful nuclear program merely based on its needs and the decisions made by its leadership and within its Safeguards commitments, unless the U.S. and other JCPOA parties return to the full and unconditional implementation of the JCPOA”.
