Iran said on Sunday it will further scale back its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, raising its uranium enrichment level beyond the cap set in the agreement. 
Behrouz Kamalvandi, the spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said technical preparations for the new level of enrichment have been completed and enrichment over 3.67% will begin "within a few hours", ISNA reported. 
He made the remarks during a joint press conference with Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi and Government Spokesman Ali Rabiei. 
The announcement comes at a time of sharply increased US-Iran tensions, a year after Washington quit the pact and reimposed sanctions that had been lifted under the accord in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear work.
