TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's state television reported that the country will no longer abide by any of the limits of its 2015 nuclear deal.

The announcement came Sunday night after another Iranian official said it would consider taking even-harsher steps over the U.S. killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani on Friday in Baghdad. State TV cited a statement by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's administration saying the country will not observe limitations on its enrichment, the amount of stockpiled enriched uranium as well as research and development in its nuclear activities.

It did not elaborate on what levels it would immediately reach in its program.

The International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations watchdog observing Iran's program, could not be immediately reach for comment.

I'm not getting why the USA is even so interested in IRAN. Why spending trillions of dollars in Middle East endless wars. Like the US, Iran can have its own nuclear weapons. I'm not supporting nuclear wars but Trump should think about his own country first. Thousands of people including women and children are homeless, starving here, sleeping on roads. I support Mr. Trump on starting different concept of e-learning for students, at but this is not much, we already have enough oil, and other resources for AMERICA! Why not live and let other countries live peacefully.

AP is spewing fear-mongering propaganda straight from the Pentagon. Tehran has NOT abandoned the Nuclear Arms Agreement and is in fact asking other participants to reaffirm it.
