Britain deeply concerned at Iran's plan for faster uranium enrichment

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain said on Thursday it was concerned and disappointed by Iran’s plan to take another step away from a 2015 nuclear deal by starting to develop centrifuges to speed up uranium enrichment.

“Iran’s plan to suspend limits on nuclear research and development is deeply concerning,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.

“This third step away from its commitments under the nuclear deal is particularly disappointing at a time when we and our European and international partners are working hard to de-escalate tensions with Iran.”
