TEHRAN, July 10 (Xinhua) — Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Friday warned that there will be consequences if it is proven that foreign elements were involved in the recent “blast” at Natanz nuclear facility, Press TV reported.
“Security bodies are investigating all the details of the incident (in Natanz), and it is still too early to talk about and make any judgment regarding the main cause and reason for the blast,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi was quoted as saying.
“If they conclude that foreign elements have been involved … there will be consequences,” said Mousavi.
On July 2, Iran said an “incident” affected a shed under construction at the Natanz complex, but it caused no casualties and failed to stop enrichment work at the facility.
On Friday, Mousavi pointed to some media reports attributing the “explosion” to Israel, saying that such reports are aimed at “portraying Israel as powerful.”
Iran’s Supreme National Security Council has announced that the country’s experts have determined the main cause of a recent “incident” at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, and they will announce it at “an appropriate time.”
Natanz is a Fuel Enrichment Plant covering 100,000 square meters. It is located in Natanz, the capital city of Natanz County in Iran’s central Isfahan Province. Enditem
