Iran’s Arak heavy water nuclear reactor will resume its previous activities from July 7 if the other signatories under the 2015 Nuclear deal fail to uphold their part, the country’s President Hassan Rouhani said on July 3.

“But from July 7 onward with the Arak reactor, if you don’t operate [according to] the programme and timeframe of all the commitments you’ve given us, we will return the Arak reactor to its previous condition,” Rouhani said. “Meaning the condition that you say is dangerous and can produce plutonium.”

“We will return to that unless you take action regarding all your commitments regarding Arak.”

The president also revealed that Iran’s enrichment level would no longer be 3.67% and would be increased.
