This comes as the new US Secretary of State Antony Blinken warned that Iran could be weeks away from building a nuclear weapon.
Mr Blinken issued the stark warning in his first televised interview since he assumed his duties under the Biden Administration.
Speaking to NBC News’ Andrea Mitchell, Mr Blinken said Iran could become a nuclear power within months, if not weeks.
He said: “It is a problem that could get more acute because if Iran continues to lift some of the restrains imposed by the agreement, that could get down to a matter weeks.”
In another escalation of the situation, top Israeli officials have insisted that “direct action” against Iran’s nuclear facilities was on the table.
One minister, who is a close ally of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, says that Israel may have to strike Iran by itself, if the US refuses to act.
Tzachi Hanegbi said in the future there “may be no choice” other than an Israeli strike to prevent a nuclear-armed Islamic Republic.
President Biden has vowed to rejoin the 2015 nuclear treaty struck by Barack Obama if Tehran stops violating its terms.
Earlier this week, Iran successfully launched its first ever space rocket powered by a solid-fuel engine.
The rocket, a Zolijanah SLV, can achieve a height of 310 miles and carry a payload of 485 pounds, according to reports.
Israel has already waged a bombing campaign against Iranian targets in Syria in recent years.
