Japan urges Iran to return to its commitment under nuclear deal
Japan is expressing serious concern over Iran’s decision to increase uranium enrichment above the limit set by the 2015 nuclear agreement, urging Tehran to return to its earlier commitment.
Japan's Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura said that Tokyo is"seriously concerned and closely watching" the development on the nuclear deal and increased tension in the Middle East.
He urged Iran to "immediately return to its commitment under the agreement and avoid any further steps that would undermine the nuclear agreement," the AP reported.
Iran’s decision Sunday comes a year after the U.S. unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear deal and has since imposed sanctions on Iran’s oil exports, escalating the tension.
