Tehran (ISNA) – The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali-Akbar Slahehi called the Sunday attack on Nataz nuclear facility a "sabotage', saying, it wasn't an accident and security systems entered into the issue.

Referring to the connections between the Sunday attack and the attack on centrifuge assembly center on 5th July 2020, Ali Akbar Salehi said, "No, these two attacks are different".

He continued, "The enemy reports that they can delayed Iran nuclear activities for 9 months but I tell you that just in coming days, a significant part of the sabotage committed by the enemy will be compensated".

Referring to the 5th July attack, Salehi said, "The attack in which they destroyed the modern centrifuge assembly hall was heinous but we revive significant part of that, also we are instructing several advanced halls in the mountain, too".

He noted that the security systems have found out about the roots of the accident and they will inform the public about it; but they've found clues on that.

However, he said, "Some of the machines are out of circuit following the yesterday attack and some other has to inspect or replace".

Answering to a question that does Vienna negotiation has to stop, Salehi said, "Everything has to take in its place".

Salehi went on by saying about establishment of a pediatric nuclear medicine center in the pediatric ward of Imam Khomeini Hospital in early May, "It is the first time that such a center is established in Iran and it was done with the help and support of the Atomic Energy Organization".
