Iran:The Explosion in the Natanz Facility was Caused by Sabotage Operations
Behrouz Kalamundi, the spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Organization, said today, that the explosion at the Natanz facility was caused by sabotage operations.
In an interview with the Iranian channel Al-Alam, Kamalondi said, “Two new salons have been prepared in two different areas to complete the work in Natanz.”
While Tehran had previously threatened with a severe response, if it turned out that the explosion was caused by an attack.
The Iranian official emphasized that his country had never said that it would not allow the International Atomic Energy Organization to inspect its facilities, but this matter would take a place when it will stop making allegations.
This comes at a time when Tehran is expecting the visit of the Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, this week.
Kalmundi stressed that “the questions and allegations of the international agency must include serious principles and documents, and be based on clear foundations, not espionage allegations.”
The Natanz facility fire occurred last month, causing big losses with no human casualties, according to a spokesman for the National Nuclear Energy Organization of Iran.
Natanz, located 250 km south of the capital, Tehran, is the largest uranium enrichment facility in Iran.
