However the performance of the Chinese companies left much to be desired. So many cases of mismanagement, lack of meeting milestones, schedule slippage........blah blah......it was endless. It's fair to say Iran had an unpleasant experience with China. Flagship projects like Azadegan, Yadavaran and many S.Pars phases remained in limbo. The Chinese didn't cut the mustard. Iran also accused China of dumping its goods as payment in Iran which Iran didn't require. Suffice to say Iran is very cautious of China now.
Now coming back to this topic, I wonder what Iran seeks to gain by withdrawing from the JCPOA at this juncture? It's a busted ass deal already. However by totally rescinding it would alienate the EU also. Enriching Uranium is not going to solve Iran's trade drama nor would the sanctions go away either.

Just posturing and bluffing by both sides. Enriching Uranium won't cut the economic mustard for Iran. This is just huff n puff. However, Iran can up the ante considerably by deploying its forces near the Golan. Now that will absolutely get their attention, guaranteed! but we all know such maneuvers and war gaming require big money and a military commitment with very clear eyed goals. This might very well be Iran's next step to pressure the US to rescind the sanctions drama.
One thing is very clear here, if Iran can't export its oil, then Iran will move 'physically' closer to Israel, as that is something Iran can do and start the obvious and automatic harassment of the IDF. I bet the IRGC has been instructed to act if the economic situation of Iran deteriorates.
