Iran's uranium enrichment higher than before JCPOA - Rouhani

Iran is enriching uranium in its nuclear plant Fordow at a higher pace compared to the period before signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iranian President Hassan Rouhani asserted on Thursday.

"We are enriching more uranium before the deal was reached. Pressure has increased on Iran but we continue to progress. We have no limits on the nuclear file, and we are increasing enrichment every day," Rouhani said in his televised speech.

On January 5, Tehran decided to completely scale back from its nuclear commitments following the assassination of Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani. Foreign ministers of the European Union triggered a dispute mechanism on JCPOA, condemning Iran for "choosing to further reduce compliance" with the nuclear deal.
