Trump would regret abandoning nuclear deal, warns Iran

"It's natural that our enemies and opponents, especially the Americans, after the nuclear deal was agreed and after Trump took office, have made great efforts to try and present Iran's economy as turbulent and try to discourage anyone from working with Iran", Jahangiri said.

Reuters notes that "Iran has warned that it would ramp up its nuclear program if the JCPOA collapses, to achieve a more advanced level than before the deal".

The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, Ali Akbar Salehi, said that domestic experts have managed to renovate Tehran Research Reactor (TRR), a 5 megawatt-thermal pool-type light water research reactor.

"We will produce any weapons necessary to defend our country in such a volatile region", Rouhani said.

Adelle Nazarian is a politics and national security reporter for Breitbart News. Bolton has argued for years against keeping the deal and has called on President Trump to fulfill his campaign promise of ending it.

"If the deal breaks, they will surely regret it".

Trump said in January that "disastrous flaws" in the agreement had to be fixed or Iran would face a US exit. Trump has effectively set that as a deadline for European powers to fix what he called "the bad flaws" of the deal. This is a last chance. Should the USA back out of the deal, sanctions that were lifted as part of the agreement would be reinstated.

Azari-Jahromi said the attack mainly affected Europe, India and the United States, state television reported. "No one should doubt my word".

In 2017, Iranian atomic official Behrouz Kamalvandi said that Iran's nuclear programme could "soar" if they wanted it to, which would probably invite the revamp of the Arak heavy water facility. "I will also follow through on this pledge".

Our powers, even our military power is not for aggression against any country. His threats reveal what many deal skeptics have long argued: "unless the JCPOA is fixed, Iran has pathways to dozens of nuclear-tipped missiles capable of striking United States forces, USA allies, and eventually the U.S. homeland". "Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to work with us will be siding with the Iranian regime's nuclear ambitions, and against the people of Iran and the peaceful nations of the world", he continued.
