Iran to take 3rd step veering away from nuclear deal

TEHRAN, Iran warned on Monday world powers that it would not offer any further “deadlines” to save the 2015 nuclear deal by September.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi told reporters that the last chance for saving the pact will pass after a 60-day deadline.

Tehran’s third step in reducing commitments under the nuclear deal will be stronger, he added.

Mousavi said Iran is still open to negotiations with its European partners and expressed hope they would “take steps forward” toward implementing their commitments.

On Sunday, Iran offered a new grace period of 60 days for the Europeans before it starts a new phase of reducing its commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
