Iran will increase its level of uranium enrichment after Sunday (July 7) to whatever levels it needs beyond the 3.67 percent cap set in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday, according to the IRIB news agency.

If the remaining signatories of the nuclear deal with world powers do not fulfill their promises, then the Arak nuclear reactor will return to its previous activities after July 7, Rouhani said.

Iran's reduction of commitments under the nuclear deal is not intended to strike a blow against the deal but to preserve the deal, he said, adding that Iran will remain committed to the nuclear deal as long as the other side stays committed to the nuclear deal.
