Iran to ditch further nuclear weapon commitments in retaliation for new US sanctions

Iran will abandon more nuclear deal commitments on 7 July, the country’s Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Ali Shamkhani, said on Tuesday, according to the Fars news agency.

He said that European signatories to the nuclear deal had not done enough to save it.

The 2015 deal requires Iran to curb its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of sanctions.
