SULAIMANI – The Kremlin said on Monday that Iran had so far faithfully stuck to internationally-agreed curbs on uranium enrichment and that Moscow was unaware of any statement suggesting that Tehran intended to stop doing so.

Iran said earlier on Monday it would breach curbs on its stock of low-enriched uranium in 10 days - a move likely to strain already high tensions with Washington - but it added European countries still had time to save a nuclear deal.

“I haven’t seen this statement,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
