Challenging Washington again, Iran decides to raise level of uranium enrichment

Ali Akbar Velayati, adviser to the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution for International Affairs, said Iran would raise uranium enrichment more than allowed in the nuclear agreement, as of next Sunday.

Velayati stressed on Friday that raising the level of enrichment would be "commensurate with Iran's needs to resume its peaceful nuclear activities."

Iranian President Hassan Rowhani said Tehran would cut further its nuclear commitments on Jan. 7 and begin enriching uranium as much as it needed.

Rowhani stressed that Iran will not only enrich uranium at the level of 3.67% after July seventh, but will raise the level of enrichment starting from the seventh of this month.
