(INTELLIHUB) — Iranian officials have purposefully breached the framework of the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal after European officials failed to help expunge sanctions imposed by the United States.

From NBC News:

Inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, later confirmed Iran had accumulated more enriched uranium than allowed under the deal.

“We can confirm that IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano has informed the Board of Governors that the Agency verified on 1 July that Iran’s total enriched uranium stockpile exceeded 300 kg of UF6 enriched up to 3.67% U-235 (or the equivalent in different chemical forms),” a spokesperson said.

It’s unknown if President Trump and members of his administration see the maneuver as an act of war.
