“We will not return to previous levels if our counterparts leave the [nuclear deal], but will instead reach even more advanced levels,” Atomic Energy Organization spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi was quoted as saying by state broadcaster IRIB on September 5.

“We are at a considerably more advanced status than when we signed the deal. The country is moving ahead in nuclear activities at a favorable pace,” he said, reported RFERL.

U.S. President Trump has left the door open to further talks on the situation.

“It’s possible. Anything is possible,” Trump said. “We’ll see what happens with Iran. Whether they want to talk or not, that’s up to them, not up to me.”

Trump claimed that “Iran is a much different place than when I took over the presidency,” describing the country as currently “in turmoil…When I took office, it was just a question of how long until they took over the entire Middle East. Now they are just worrying about their own survival as a country,” wrote RFERL.
