TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Friday its experts would continue nuclear development activities, despite sanctions imposed earlier this week on their fellow scientists by the United States.State TV cited a statement from the country’s nuclear department saying the U.S. decision to impose sanctions on two Iranian nuclear scientists indicate continuation of a “hostile” attitude. It said the sanctions would make them “determined to continue their nonstop efforts more than before.”

The statement said the sanctions violate international law.On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo imposed sanctions on two officials with Iran’s atomic energy organization, Majid Agha’i and Amjad Sazgar, who are involved in the development and production of centrifuges used to enrich uranium.

Pompeo also said he would revoke all but one of the sanctions waivers covering civil nuclear cooperation. The waivers had allowed Russian, European and Chinese companies to continue to work on Iran’s civilian nuclear facilities without drawing American penalties.

Waivers that permitted work at the Arak heavy water plant and the Tehran Research Reactor had been in place until now. A waiver for work at the Bushehr nuclear power station will be the only one extended.Since the U.S. withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear deal with world powers in 2018, Iran has gradually taken steps away from the accord and started injecting uranium gas into more than a thousand centrifuges. Iran says the steps could be reversed if Europe offers a way for it to avoid U.S. sanctions choking off its crude oil sales abroad.

Iran is also enriching uranium up to 4.5% in violation of the accord’s limit of 3.67%. Enriched uranium at the 3.67% level is enough for peaceful pursuits but is far below weapons-grade levels of 90%.At the 4.5% level, it is enough to help power Iran’s Bushehr reactor, the country’s only nuclear power plant. Prior to the nuclear deal, Iran had reached up to 20%.

Every country has the right of knowledge, and nuclear development is one, is not a privilege for a few Gee, big shock. Almost like the mullahs running Iran have the singular purpose to develop NuclearWeapons in order to bring about the end of the world. Twelvers Imamiyyah Nuke them now!!! Just keep a eye on

It'll slow it down though to give us more time then Obama gave us in the 'Iran Deal'. Careful, both Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu are in desperate need of a war! Impossible. Obama was involved. Despite is a curious choice of words. Let me think about that one. Nuclear deterrence is the only think that will protect them from a US invasion.

Hard-line former Tehran mayor named Iran parliament speaker Iran 's parliament elects a hard-line former mayor of Tehran as the legislative body's new speaker. Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf was one of the challengers to President Hassan Rouhani in Iran 's 2017 presidential election. Threatening them with war led to the people using their limited power to choose more extreme politicians. The assassination of Soulemani was dangerous and will have lasting consequences making peace between the US, Iran, Israel, and other countries even further away. Since there are no free + fair elections, Iran has no parliament . It's a travestie. As for Mohammad Bagher Qalibaf , he is a man of Supreme Leader Khamenei
