On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the international agreement and announced the return of nuclear sanctions, in violation of Washington's commitments under the JCPOA(Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).

Trump's move has drawn widespread domestic and international condemnation.

Iran announced on May 8, 2019, one year after the US unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal and after proving the ineffectiveness of European solutions proposed to compensate for the economic consequences of the US withdrawal from the JCPOA, that it suspended part of its obligations under Articles 26 and 36 of the agreement.

Reducing Iran's final commitments in five steps, included raising its uranium enrichment rate from 3.67 percent, increasing its enriched uranium reserves, suspending all R&D commitments, resuming uranium enrichment, reprocessing at Fordow nuclear facilities, and lifting the limit on the number of centrifuges, which all have been implemented.
