United States national security adviser John Bolton announced that US President Donald Trump is considering canceling Iran’s nuclear program exemptions, according to Arabian Media.

The decision was made after Iran lifted its stockpile of enriched uranium beyond the limits set in the nuclear deal, as well as Iranian President Hasan Rouhani’s threat to raise the enrichment rate by any percentage Iran wants, Bolton said on Friday.

Bolton stressed that according to the nuclear agreement, Iran had 7 different exceptions to the nuclear program, which fell to 5 exceptions earlier.

The White House national security adviser John Bolton said that the decision of the Iranian authorities to violate the nuclear agreement is an indication of the effectiveness of the “extreme pressure campaign” by the US government.

Bolton stressed that Iran, with increased uranium stockpiles and increased enrichment, showed it had no decisive and strategic decision to abandon nuclear weapons production.

In May, the United States again granted exemptions allowing Britain, China, France and Russia to continue working with Iran in the area of ​​nonproliferation, allowing them to pursue projects aimed at curbing Tehran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon.

It also included exemptions issued by the Government of the installation of nuclear facilities in Arak, Bushehr and Fordo, in order to maintain international control over them.

The United States has said it will begin to prevent Iran from exchanging enriched uranium, which is allowed by the nuclear deal, but has granted some exemptions, including low-grade uranium enrichment and low-grade heavy water production, which Iran has declared has violated its limited stockpiles and intends to raise enrichment.

In a statement on May 8, the Supreme National Security Council, addressing the member states of the nuclear agreement, stressed that Iran would suspend some of its measures in the nuclear agreement since May 8.

The statement said Tehran did not consider itself currently committed to observing restrictions on maintaining the reserves of enriched uranium and heavy water reserves.
