Iran to expel UN nuclear inspectors unless sanctions are lifted

Iran will expel United Nations nuclear watchdog inspectors, unless US sanctions are lifted by a Feb 21 deadline set by the hardline-dominated parliament, a lawmaker said on Saturday. ​​​​Parliament passed a law in November that obliges the government to halt inspections of its nuclear sites by the International Atomic Energy Agency and step up uranium enrichment beyond the limit set under Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal if sanctions are not eased.
