WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States expects Iran to reduce its stockpile of low enriched uranium to the levels required under a deal with major powers by a June 30 deadline, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday.

“If they don’t, that’ll be a problem,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters at her daily briefing, saying the Iranians had always gotten to the prescribed levels under interim nuclear deals. “We expect that they will.”
