Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Saturday that his country would continue to enrich uranium under the nuclear deal with world powers, despite America’s move to prevent it from doing so.

The United States moved on Friday to force Iran to halt production of low-enriched uranium and expand its only nuclear power plant, intensifying its campaign to halt Tehran’s ballistic missile program and limit its influence in the region..

“Under the (nuclear agreement), Iran can produce heavy water and this is not a violation of the agreement, so we will continue our enrichment activity,” Larijani was quoted by the semi-official ISNA news agency as saying. Fars News Agency reported a similar report, and heavy water can be used in reactors to produce plutonium, a fuel used in nuclear warheads.

The United States has also lifted sanctions exemption that allowed Iran to avoid 300 kg of low-enriched uranium (LEU) that could be stored, based on the nuclear deal, at its main nuclear facility in Natanz.

Washington said the measure was aimed at forcing Tehran to halt production of low-enriched uranium, a demand Iran has repeatedly rejected and says it is using uranium to generate electricity.
