Uranium stockpile growing, Iran says

Iran opens new centrifuge rotor factory: nuclear chief

France, Germany, and the United Kingdom offered Iran a package of "economic guarantees" this month to keep them in the deal, but Iran judged their offer "insufficient" and demanded more.

Salehi said Iran was building the factory during negotiations that led to the 2015 nuclear agreement, but it was not operational.

Salehi also told state TV on Wednesday the effort to acquire uranium has resulted in a stockpile of as much as 950 tonnes.

In its report, he said, the Foreign Ministry also referred to the 11 report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on Iran's full compliance with its nuclear pledges and its continued nuclear activities within the country's strategic and long-term nuclear program.

The agreement, negotiated between Iran and world powers, placed strict limits on Tehran's nuclear program in return for elimination of economic sanctions.

Trump's decision was sharply opposed by Iran and the deal's other signatories - Britain, France, Germany, Russia, and China. Iran's filing asks the ICJ to order the United States to provisionally lift its sanctions ahead of more detailed arguments.

Speaking in response to a question on the impact of U.S. -Iran tensions over India, the Minister said that the Iranian nuclear issue should be resolved peacefully and that India's ties with Tehran are not dependent on a third country.

Zarif addressed world diplomats and Iranian businessmen at a lavish Tehran hotel on Monday night, in a meeting designed as a show of continued mutual support in the face of the U.S. move.

Four days of hearings into an earlier complaint lodged by Iran in October 2016 against the U.S. for freezing around $2 billion of its assets overseas are due to start on October 8 when the United States will argue the court has no authority to hear the case.

This lawsuit follows the US' decision in May to remove itself from the Iran nuclear deal and reimpose sanctions against Tehran. It is unclear whether Iran's latest case will be taken up by the judges in The Hague. Although the ICJ, based in The Hague, is the highest United Nations court and its decisions are binding, it has no power to enforce them, and countries, including the USA, have occasionally ignored its rulings.

India's Minister of State for External Affairs V K Singh made the remark in Lok Sabha, the lower house of India's bicameral parliament, while replying to a question on whether India will continue its economic relations with Iran in terms of both oil imports and investment in Chabahar port in the wake of the USA sanctions against the Persian Gulf country.

Shultz said the European Union was ready to trade with Iran, operate commercial transit routes to the country and pursue further cooperation with Tehran despite the United States moves.
