The US administration on Sunday, intends to renew sanctions against Iran’s nuclear facility at Fordow.
“The United States will cancel the exception from sanctions for this facility on 15 December 2019,” – said earlier the US state Secretary Michael Pompeo reporters in Washington.
Pompeo explained that the decision in Washington accepted due to the fact that Tehran recently announced the resumption of uranium enrichment at Fordow.
“The right level of enriching uranium for the world’s largest country-sponsor of terrorism – zero,” said U.S. Secretary of state.
Iranian experts at the beginning of November brought the level of uranium enrichment at the facility in Fordow to 4.5%.
The decision for Ford was the fourth step of Iran’s nuclear obligations. Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said that the fourth phase of reduction of obligations of Iran can be canceled, as in the previous three, if the remaining members of SVPD “fulfill its obligations”.
In the framework of nuclear deal with Iran Fordow should be redeveloped by the Russian side in the center for the production of medical isotopes. Last week, fuel company of Rosatom – JSC “TVEL” has declared that stops work at the site.
For the resumption of these works will need to stop and dismantle the cascades, which is uranium enrichment, and to make a thorough cleaning of the premises and equipment, stated in the message of the company.
