During a conference call with reporters on Monday, when asked by a reporter about Iranian nuclear research and development, the White House said Iran could continue its “current enrichment R&D practices.”

“It—I mean, their commitment is to continue their current enrichment R&D practices, and those are the practices that are laid out in the November Director General’s report,” said one of two senior administration officials on the press briefing, the Washington Free Beacon reported. “This—that’s been documented, and that’s what they were—that’s what they will continue to do,” the White House official added.

Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani boasted that world powers surrendered to Iran’s will in the agreement.

“Our relationship w/ the world is based on Iranian nation’s interests. In #Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation’s will,” Rouhani tweeted Tuesday.
