Iran to boost uranium enrichment if nuclear deal fails


Iran says it has begun work on increasing its uranium enrichment capacity, in case its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers collapses.

The head of Iran’s atomic agency told reporters it was developing infrastructure to build advanced centrifuges at the Natanz facility. The agency says it is officially notifying the United Nations’ nuclear agency about the move in a letter.

President Donald Trump withdrew the US from the deal with Iran last month.
