Iran has broken the terms of its 2015 nuclear deal and must immediately stop and reverse its activities, news agency Reuters reported quoting a spokesman for Britain's Foreign Office said on Sunday.

Iran on Sunday said it will begin enriching uranium beyond a 3.67 per cent cap set by a landmark nuclear deal. 

Iran has also threatened to abandon more nuclear commitments in '60 days'.

"Iran has broken the terms of the JCPoA," the Foreign Office spokesman said, refering to the deal's formal name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

"While the UK remains fully committed to the deal, Iran must immediately stop and reverse all activities inconsistent with its obligations. We are coordinating with other JCPoA participants regarding the next steps under the terms of the deal, including a Joint Commission."
