According to Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Tehran's backtracking on the agreement was due to external pressure.
Iran insists the announcements will not amount to a complete withdrawal from the agreement, and may include a two-month deadline for the European Union to implement its obligations before further Iranian steps are taken.
Parliament speaker Ali Larijani, a former chief nuclear negotiator, said May 4, "According to the JCPOA, Iran can produce heavy water - and according to the agreement, it would not be in violation".
In a statement on Sunday night, Bolton said the move was meant to "send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attacks on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force". Worldwide businesses rushed to do deals with Iran, most notably the billion-dollar sales by Airbus and Boeing Co. The movement, first reported by CNN, was among a range of recent indications that Iran might be considering or preparing to attack USA forces in the region, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss sensitive intelligence.
The 2015 deal saw sanctions on Iran lifted in exchange for limits on its nuclear program.
The announcement from Tehran comes just hours after the White House said it would send a carrier strike group and bombers to the Middle East to counter new "troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" coming from Iran.
Also reacting to the announcement, China called on all parties to uphold the Iranian nuclear pact. "However, Iran will respond decisively and immediately to any irresponsible act, such as referring the issue to the UN Security Council or the imposition of more sanctions". That halted the promised worldwide business deals and dealt a heavy blow to Iran's already anemic economy.
"If the counterparts do undertake any new measures Iran will return to the previous situation" before it cut its commitments, it reported, without elaborating on which commitments Iran would step back from.

A USA official said on Tuesday that the Trump administration's decision was based in part on intelligence indications that Iran had moved short-range ballistic missiles by boat off its shores. This includes the establishment of a special payments system to help worldwide companies who want to continue trading with Iran to bypass sanctions.
On Friday, the U.S. acted to force Iran to stop producing low-enriched uranium and expanding its only nuclear power plant. Weapons-grade uranium needs to be enriched to around 90pc.
However, once a country enriches uranium to around 20 per cent, scientists say the time needed to reach 90 per cent is halved. That's compared to the 10,000kg of higher-enriched uranium it once had.
But Iranian newspapers have reported the country could revive some of the nuclear activities it halted under the agreement.
The weeks leading up to the anniversary of Trump's withdrawal from the agreement have seen a sharp tightening of USA sanctions and an increase in tensions on other fronts.
The discussions remain focused toward making substantial progress on important structural issues and rebalancing the U.S. The negotiating period was prolonged in March after officials from both sides said trade talks reached a breakthrough.
