U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton says "all options remain on the table" if Iran exceeds the uranium enrichment limit under the 2015 deal.

Bolton spoke at a press conference after a high-profile trilateral security summit in Jerusalem on Tuesday.

He was responding to a question about whether a military strike was still an option if Iran crosses the 300-kilogram stockpile threshold outlined in the atomic accord. Bolton says it would be "a very serious mistake for Iran to ignore those limits."

Iran says it will possess over 300 kilograms of low-enriched uranium by Thursday, in violation of the deal. Europe separately faces a July 7 deadline imposed by Tehran to offer a better deal or Iran will begin enriching its uranium closer to weapons-grade levels.

Bolton, a longtime Iran hawk, says it "should give up their pursuit of deliverable nuclear weapons."
