Trump: Iran 'better be careful' with its JCPOA statements

U.S. President Donald Trump has issued a warning to Iran after the country moved to increase uranium enrichment beyond the purity threshold reached in a landmark nuclear deal Washington pulled out of last year.

"Because you enrich for one reason and I won't tell you what the reason is. But it's no good they better be careful," Trump said before boarding Air Force One in New Jersey.

"Iran is doing a lot of bad things. The way they want it they would have automatic rights to have nuclear weapons. Iran will never have a nuclear weapon," CNN cited the U.S. leader as saying.

Iran announced on July 7 that it has begun enriching uranium past 3.67%, but did not say what level it would enrich to.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote on Twitter that Iran’s latest expansion of its nuclear program will lead to further isolation and sanctions.
