The Guardian Council in Iran passed legislation that allows the suspension of UN inspections of nuclear sites and the raising of the level of uranium enrichment.

The legislation requires the government to resume uranium enrichment to 20% – a rate much higher than the 3.67% agreed upon under the 2015 nuclear deal – if sanctions on Iran are not eased within two months.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expressed his opposition to this legislation.

This development comes after the assassination of the prominent Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh in a mysterious attack on a road outside the capital, Tehran, on Friday.
