Tehran

Ura­nium enrichment:

The Week - - News | The world at a glance -

Iran an­nounced this week that it had be­gun work on in­creas­ing its ura­nium enrichment ca­pac­ity – within the lim­its agreed un­der the 2015 nuclear deal with world pow­ers – in case that agree­ment col­lapses. The deal was im­per­illed last month when Don­ald Trump an­nounced the US’S with­drawal; Iran’s an­nounce­ment has piled more pres­sure on the Euro­pean gov­ern­ments scram­bling to save it. Is­rael re­acted to the news by call­ing for the deal to be scrapped, and re­it­er­ated that the West should be pre­pared for mil­i­tary ac­tion against Tehran.
