The U.S. State Department's spokesperson, Morgan Ortagus, stated that “we continue to call on the Iranian regime not to obtain a nuclear weapon, to abide by their commitments to the international community. And I think it’s unfortunate that they’ve made this announcement today…. Iran, as evident by their announcement today but also their pattern of behavior over the past few years, is keen on expanding – or seems to be keen on expanding their nuclear program, and it now wants to exceed these nuclear limits in advance of these so-called sunset clauses”. She added that “Our maximum pressure campaign continues, and it will continue to be what we pursue”.
