The United States on Wednesday accused Iran of ‘nuclear threats’ and vowed not to comply after the regime said it would continue uranium enrichment at its Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant (FFEP), an Iranian underground uranium enrichment facility located 20 miles (32 km) northeast of the Iranian city of Qom.

“Iran has no solid reason to enhance its uranium enrichment program at Fordow’s facilities or any other plant, other than to attempt a nuclear threat that would only worsen political and economic sanctions on it”, a US State Department spokesman said.

“We will continue to impose maximum restrictions on the regime until it stops this unstable behavior”, he said.

President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would continue the process of enrichment at a plant near the holy city of Qom that was suspended under the 2015 nuclear agreement with the US and five other world powers.

This is Iran’s latest move to benefit significantly from the US-led deal, when President Donald Trump imposed strict sanctions aimed at undermining Tehran’s regional role.

The State Department says it will await confirmation from the UN’s nuclear observer, the International Atomic Energy Agency, which has increased its scrutiny under the 2015 agreement.
