Iran has indicated it is prepared to restart its nuclear weapons program on an “industrial scale” if the agreement it entered in 2015 with the United States and other world powers falls through.

In a statement released on Friday by Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, Iran said its representatives would embark on a round of diplomacy with the countries that have not pulled out of the agreement — Great Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China — to see if it can be saved.
In lieu of such assurances, the statement said the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization “has been tasked with taking all necessary steps in preparation for Iran to pursue industrial-scale enrichment without restrictions.”
