Agreement with Europe unlikely, Iran to announce 3rd step on JCPOA: Rouhani

Press TV – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the country and Europe are unlikely to reach an agreement on ways to save a 2015 multilateral nuclear accord, and that Tehran will go ahead with its plan to announce the third step in scaling back its commitments under the accord.

“It is unlikely that we will reach a result with Europe today or tomorrow. We will announce Iran’s third step, which is highly important in nature and will accelerate the activities of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI),” Rouhani was quoted as saying by his deputy chief of staff for communications and information, Parviz Esmaeili, on Wednesday.
