Iran: We Can Produce Enriched Uranium in Two Days if US Pulls Out of Nuclear Deal

Iran: We Can Produce Enriched Uranium in Two Days if US Pulls Out of Nuclear Deal

"Iran's defence power is not a threat to any country, and its enhancement is a function of the security needs", Shamkani was quoted by Tasnim as saying.

The meeting Monday drew protests from a number of university students in front of the foreign ministry in Tehran. This complicates France's ability to advocate for sanctions on Iran, but it is important for France to remember that the majority of the Iranian economy is controlled by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, a paramilitary force that answers only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and so any additional investments are likely funding terrorism and human rights violations.

Iran seeks the progress and prosperity of all regional countries, Rouhani said, stressing Iran's economic, political and military power was for deterrence not attacking other countries. He added that Le Drian should adopt a less critical approach towards Iran if France hopes to strengthen relations between the two countries. No wonder the Doomsday Clock is at its most risky since 1953.

Former Trump adviser Sam Nunberg implies president 'may have done something wrong'

"The condition for negotiating Iran's missiles is the destruction of the nuclear weapons and long-range missiles of the United States and Europe", Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri said on Saturday, as cited by state media. "Therefore, no one should be concerned about Iran's weapons, missiles or strengthening of its defense might", Rouhani stressed. He added that Iran's missiles "are defensive and are not created to carry weapons of mass destruction, since we don't have any".

The deal was struck between Iran and six world powers - the United States, Britain, Russia, France, China and Germany - and confines Iran's nuclear activity to the laboratory.

"We do not know in which language and tone we say that we do not want to negotiate the missile program and defense capabilities", Hosseini said in response to the French insistence.

John Cena Added To WWE Championship Match At Fastlane
What this means for The Undertaker is anyone's guess, considering the Deadman hasn't looked to great in his recent performances. In regards to Mysterio being Cena's opponent at WrestleMania 34 , Johnson stated "we can not confirm that match is correct".

Iran has insisted all parties must first adhere to the current agreement before it would consider talking about other issues outside of the nuclear pact.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian was in Iran as part of a European drive to salvage the nuclear deal with Iran that President Donald Trump is threatening to scuttle and the Islamic Republic has said it may be forced to abandon.
