Russia: US decision on Fordow plant violates intl law

The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned on Tuesday the Trump administration's decision to end sanctions waivers for Iran's Fordow nuclear plant.

"Such a decision is another example of a blatant violation of international obligations by the United States and its irresponsible treatment of the agreements and decisions of the UN Security Council," it said in a statement.

On Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that "the right amount of uranium enrichment for the world's largest state sponsor of terror is zero" after he announced the decision to terminate sanctions waivers. "There is no legitimate reason for Iran to resume enrichment at this previously clandestine site. Iran should reverse its activity there immediately," he added.
