After U.S. Violation of deal, Iran set to start work on nuclear powered vessels




In response to what it calls a U.S. Violation of its landmark 2015 atomic deal with world powers, Iran On Tuesday ordered its scientists to start developing systems for nuclear-powered marine vessels.
The move, if carried out would most likely require Iran to enrich uranium to a fissile purity higher than the maximum level set in the nuclear deal, according to nuclear experts, raising fears of Tehran building an atomic bomb.

U.S. Congress last month voted to extend some sanctions on Tehran that would make it easier to reimpose lifted sanctions under the nuclear pact entered between Iran and Washington if Teran violates it.

Rouhani's announcement marked Tehran's first reaction to the move.

Josh Earnest White House spokesman in a news briefing said "The announcement from the Iranians today does not run counter to the international agreement to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon".
A marine nuclear propulsion program is a "huge project for any nation" and could take decades to realize, he said.

Meanwhile, Iranian president Rouhani termed the technology a "nuclear propeller that could be used in marine transportation, Iran said in 2012 that it was working on its first nuclear-powered sub.” but did not say whether that meant just ships or submarines.
He said any such work on the vessels would be done within the framework of Iran's commitments.

The planning for fuel production of nuclear-powered marine vessels "is in line with the development of a peaceful nuclear program for Iran" he reinstated.
Recently, Iran curbed its nuclear fuel production activities in exchange for relief from economic sanctions, and Rouhani’s words could stoke tensions with Washington, already heightened by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's vow to scrap the deal.

The Iran US Deal In Shambles?


In the deal the country will not be allowed to enrich uranium above 3.67 percent purity level for 15 years, a gauge unlikely enough to run such vessels under the nuclear settlement the country reached with the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China.
