Britain professed on Tehran “to avoid any further steps away ” from the remarkable deal, and the UN said Iran must stick to its commitments under the bestow.
Foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif told the semi-official media, “Iran has crossed the 300-kilogram limit based on its plan”, declared in May. But he also said that the move could be reversed.
