Tehran may increase Uranium Enrichment : Rouhani

Iran has pulled out of key commitments under the 2015 International Nuclear deal, a year after it was abandoned by the US.

President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran would keep enriched Uranium Stocks in the Country and not sell them Abroad.

He also threatened to resume production of higher enriched Uranium in 60 days.

The accord is aimed at curbing Iran's Nuclear Ambitions in return for sanctions relief, but Iran-US Tensions have risen since Washington quit.

Iran's Economy has since been hit by renewed US Sanctions.

The announcement comes after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made an unscheduled visit to Iraq, and a US Aircraft carrier was deployed to the Gulf Region.

US Officials have reported threats to US Forces and their allies from Iran, but have given few details about the exact nature of the threat.

The Landmark Nuclear deal agreed by Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the US, UK, France, China and Russia - plus Germany was thrown into flux when President Trump announced the US withdrawal one year ago.
