Iran is pressing ahead with plans to further draw down its commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal.
According to Iran's state-run Tasnim News Agency, local media representatives have been invited to heavy water nuclear facilities in Arak on Monday to hear the second step Iran could take to scale back its commitments as well as to increase its stocks of enriched uranium.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced last month that Tehran was halting its compliance to the pact that the U.S. withdrew from last year.
Iran also urged the EU to protect its economy from U.S. sanctions within 60 days of deadline.
