Iran has declared that it will no longer abide by any of the restrictions imposed by the 2015 nuclear deal.
In a statement, it said it would no longer observe limitations on its capacity for enrichment, the level of enrichment, the stock of enriched material, or research and development.
The announcement followed a meeting of the Iranian cabinet in Tehran.
Tensions have been high over the killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani by the US in Baghdad.
Reports from Baghdad say the US embassy compound there was targeted in an attack on Sunday evening.
