European powers express ‘grave concern’ over Iran’s 60% uranium enrichment

European powers express “grave concern” over Iran’s move to boost uranium enrichment to 60 percent in response to what Tehran says was an attack by Israel against its key nuclear facility at Natanz.

Britain, France and Germany say the announcement is “particularly regrettable” at a time when talks have resumed including the United States to revive the 2015 nuclear deal.

“Iran has no credible civilian need for enrichment at this level,” they say.

In possible reference to the attack on the Natanz plant, they say they also reject “all escalatory measures by any actor.”
