The waivers are one of the last remaining components of the 2015 nuclear deal the Trump administration withdrew from past year.

"Iran is exploiting the civil-nuclear waivers from the Obama-Iran deal, which the Trump administration has continued to issue, to build up their nuclear program and buy time until the nuclear deal expires, leaving them with a full-blown unlimited civilian nuclear program".

The pact requires Iran to restrain its enrichment program in exchange for the removal of most worldwide sanctions, and it called for Fordow to be converted into a nuclear, physics and technology center.

Pompeo said the waivers will end on December 15.

The catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), entangles the worldwide community with Iran's nuclear program through a range of cooperative nuclear projects.

The United States has cancelled a sanctions waiver to allow research at Iran's Fordow nuclear facility, announced U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday.

Why should the waivers be revoked?

Critics of Trump have said that the waivers proved the administration saw the benefits of the deal, which sharply expanded access for global inspectors.

Fars news agency, which is close to Iran's Revolutionary Guards, said was unclear when the internet restrictions would be lifted, citing an informed government source.

"The right amount of uranium enrichment for the world's largest state sponsor of terror is zero.There is no legitimate reason for Iran to resume enrichment at this previously clandestine site", Pompeo said at a press briefing about the Fordow site, where the United Nations atomic watchdog says the country has been enriching uranium.

Piling pressure as protests hit Iran, the move is meant to discourage work led by Russia's state-owned nuclear company Rosatom at the once-secret site, which was supposed to be transformed into a civilian research center under the 2015 agreement. The Arak JCPOA project was supposed to redesign the reactor to make it less unsafe.

Frustration has grown over a sharp devaluation of Iran's rial currency as well as spikes in the prices of bread, rice and other staples since Washington began to apply "maximum pressure" on Iran to make tougher nuclear and security concessions.

Despite its withdrawal, the Trump administration has granted sanctions waivers that allowed foreign firms to do work in Iran that advanced non-proliferation.
