MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia’s Foreign Ministry said on Friday that Iran’s latest move to scale back its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal did not pose a threat to the non-proliferation regime, Interfax news agency reported.

Iran said on Thursday it had resumed uranium enrichment at its underground Fordow nuclear plant, stepping further away from its deal with world powers after the United States pulled out of it.
