(Worthy News) - Iranian President Hassan Rouani threatened Wednesday to resume enrichment of uranium if the terms of the 2015 nuclear accord, from which the U.S. withdrew this time last year, were not renegotiated within 60 days among the powers that remain signatories to it.

Rouani presented a summons to Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany to “help Iran to reach its benefits in the field of oil and banking,” which have suffered since a recent U.S. imposition of sanctions on Iranian oil exports, promising that “Iran will return to its commitments according to the nuclear deal” if the countries’ response is sufficient to reverse the effects of President Trump’s policies.

In the last year alone since the U.S.’s withdrawal from the nuclear accord, the Iranian rial has plummeted, now trading at 153,000 to $1 compared with 32,000 to $1 a year ago.

The stranglehold on the Iranian economy is not the only form of pressure the U.S. has employed in recent weeks against the Islamic Republic. Just last Sunday, U.S. officials announced a strike carrier group with Air Force support would be deployed to the vicinity of the Strait of Hormuz, a waterway critical to world oil trade that Iran controls and has threatened to close.

The 2015 nuclear accord was negotiated by members of the Obama Administration and Iran, and provided the Islamic republic freedom from economic sanctions in exchange for assurances that it would cease its enrichment of uranium, which process holds the potential for creating a nuclear weapon.
