US President Donald Trump Iran threatened after the country announced its intention to violate a key condition ( uranium enrichment) of the international nuclear agreement. Iran should be more cautious, Trump said Sunday in front of journalists in the state of New Jersey.

The country is doing a lot of “bad things,” he added, affirming that the country would never own nuclear weapons.

The leadership in Tehran had previously announced that it would gradually increase uranium enrichment to 5 to 20 percent as needed. 90 percent highly enriched uranium can be used for nuclear weapons.

This was agreed between the United Nations, Russia, China, France, Great Britain, Germany and Iran in 2015 nuclear deal should prevent Tehran from building a nuclear bomb.

The Iranian nuclear program was severely restricted and monitored, in return economic sanctions were lifted against the country.

The United States stepped out of the agreement in 2018 unilaterally. Trump also imposed sanctions on the country threatening any economic disadvantage that Iranian oil purchases. He wants to drastically reduce the income of the Islamic Republic and make Tehran politically compliant.

Iran is disappointed with its economic hopes linked to the agreement after the announcement of uranium enrichment. Two months ago, Tehran had therefore announced that it would step out of the deal.
