France, Germany, Britain and the European Union have said they are "extremely concerned" by Iran's decision to restart nuclear activities at one of its key sites. In a joint statement on Monday, they expressed concern that Iran is restarting uranium enrichment activities at the Fordow facility. It was confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in its report.

They said that Iran's action was "inconsistent" with the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPoA, under which Tehran had agreed to curb some of its nuclear activities- notably uranium enrichment- in return for a lifting of economic sanctions. But the Iran said it no longer feels bound by the JCPoA after the US unilaterally pulled out of the accord last year.

The IAEA report also confirmed that Iran has ramped up uranium enrichment, with its stockpile now reaching the equivalent of 551 kilogrammes, as opposed to the 300-kilogramme limit laid down in the JCPoA.
