Iran said on Monday it will surpass the uranium stockpile limit set by its nuclear deal with world powers in the next 10 days, but added that Europe still has time to salvage the agreement, which has been on the verge of breakdown since the US withdrawal last year. 
"Today the countdown to pass the 300-kilogram limit of enriched uranium has started and we will pass this limit in 10 days," the spokesperson for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran said, putting the date for crossing the limit on June 27, ISNA reported. 
Behrouz Kamalvandi made the statements during a press conference with journalists at the Arak heavy water facility that was aired live on state television.
