Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani declared on Thursday that Iran will break one condition of the deal by returning to a higher level of uranium enrichment, and will give Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany just 60 days to deliver on their promise to protect Iran's oil and banking sectors from US sanctions. The EU still believes the deal is salvageable.

The same day as Rouhani’s announcement, US President Donald Trump said he is open to discussions with Iran’s leadership.
