"Some negotiations have been held on mutual cooperation and building small nuclear power plants in Iran by China," Iranian MP Mojtaba Zonnou said Sunday, Fars news agency reported. Zonnou is the chairman of the Nuclear Committee in the Iranian Parliament.
"The Chinese welcomed the proposal and it was decided that the issue be pursued at other [higher] levels," the lawmaker noted.
In January, Trump listed several ultimatums for Iran to meet in order to keep the United States in the deal his predecessor Barack Obama and other world leaders negotiated and agreed to.
The deal must be reauthorized by the US president every three months. In January, Trump said the next reauthorization would be his last of the deal in its current form.
