Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The crisis that began after the assassination of General Qassam Soleimani, which had strained relations between Iran and the United States, began to expand globally. The Iranian administration announced it was withdrawing from the nuclear deal signed with Western countries in 2015.
The Iranian government has suspended all commitments to the nuclear deal, a written statement from the Iranian government said; following tensions that began after the United States killed Qassam Soleimani, commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's Quds Force, in Iraq. The statement also said that Iran will no longer abide by any commitments related to uranium enrichment, storage, research and development, and that the country will implement its nuclear program according to its technical needs.
The Iranian government will continue to work with the International Atomic Energy Agency, the statement said, adding that the Tehran administration is ready to return to the deal if sanctions are lifted and benefits are secured.
Iran's nuclear work was put under control by an agreement signed between Iran and Western countries in 2015. After Donald Trump took office, the United States of America unilaterally withdrew from the agreement and continued to impose sanctions on Iran.
