The US authorities consider it necessary for Tehran to cease its nuclear escalations and return to consultations on implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, according to the statement by US Department of State Spokesperson Ned Price.
The US has seen the report by the International Atomic Energy Agency, he noted. Reuters said earlier that the report suggests specialists in Iran had produced 200 g of uranium metal enriched up to 20%. "Iran has no credible need to produce uranium metal, which has direct relevance to nuclear weapons development," Price said. "Iran should cease its nuclear escalations and return to negotiations toward full implementation" of the nuclear agreement, TASS quoted him as saying.
