Iran Accelerates Production of Enriched Uranium as Tensions Rise

A senior Iranian official called Donald Trump a "crazy President" whose threats against Tehran weren't going to work, adding that if the US President wanted to talk, he'll not only have to show some respect, but come up with a consistent message.

"Never threaten the United States again", warned the U.S. president.

Iran has increased production of low-enriched uranium at a time of tensions with the United States over Iran's nuclear deal with western powers.

The rocket fell in the Green Zone which houses government buildings and embassies and caused no casualties, the latest in a series of regional attacks the United States believes may have been inspired by Iran. There were no claims of responsibility.

Trump tweeted: "If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran".

Foreign minister of Islamic republic of Iran Javed Zarif while taking to his Twitter handle said that Trump hopes to achieve what Alexander the great and others could not.

But Mr Trump's tweet marked a shift in tone after recent attempts by him to downplay the possibility of a military conflict with Iran.

The announcement came days after mysterious sabotage attacks against several tankers in highly sensitive Gulf waters and drone attacks on a crude pipeline by Iran-aligned Yemen rebels, which Riyadh claimed were carried out on Iranian orders.

Since Trump withdrew America a year ago from the pact, the USA has re-imposed previous sanctions and come up with new ones, as well as warning other nations they would be subject to sanctions as well if they import Iranian oil. Since then, Washington has steadily stepped up its rhetoric and reimposed sanctions.

"Just received a briefing from National Security Advisor Bolton about escalating tensions with Iran", Graham tweeted.

"If we walked away from the JCPOA with the United States provocative acts, then, in addition to the U.S., the UN and world would also impose sanctions on us", he said, using an acronym for the official name of the deal. That shrunken ability to deal with the outside world and decreasing government revenues are Iran's two main concerns at the moment, he said. But he probably would settle for long-term containment of Iran through his "maximum pressure" campaign, accepting that the Iranian regime would likely be able to sustain itself though skirting sanctions.

Iraq's populist Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr said in a statement on Monday that any political party that would involve Iraq in a U.S. -Iran war "would be the enemy of the Iraqi people".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced two weeks ago he was pulling out of part of the nuclear deal and would restart some uranium enrichment if there were no economic benefits by early July.

On Sunday, the U.S. Navy announced it would begin security patrols in global waters along with members of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
