WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday the United States had decided to end sanctions exemption associated with Iran’s Fordow nuclear plant.
He said Washington was closely monitoring the current protests in Iran and was deeply concerned about reports of deaths.
“The correct amount of uranium enriched to the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism is zero,” Pompeo told a news briefing on Fordow’s site, where the UN nuclear watchdog said Tehran was enriching uranium. “There is no legitimate reason for Iran to resume enrichment at that secret site.” Previously”.
The exemption would expire on December 15, he said.
