Iran announced that it would start enriching uranium above the 3.67 per cent level set by the JCPOA. Foreign Minister Javad Zarif declared that “today, Iran is taking its second round of remedial steps under Paragraph 36 of the JCPOA. We reserve the right to continue to exercise legal remedies within JCPOA to protect our interests in the face of U.S. economic terrorism. All such steps are reversible only through E3 compliance”. An EU spokesperson responded to the news saying that “we are extremely concerned at Iran’s announcement… we strongly urge Iran to stop and reverse all activities inconsistent with its commitments”.
