Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf vowed on Sunday a timely response to the sabotage act conducted in Natanz nuclear facility.
“The enemy tried to undermine Iran’s position in [Vienna] talks but the achievement of %60 enrichment proved to the other side that such acts will become a unique opportunity for taking bigger steps for the progress of nuclear technology rather than being a threat to it,” he said, addressing the Parliament’s open session.
“Response to the terrorist attack against Natanz is certain and will be carried out in an appropriate time,” he highlighted, as quoted by Mehr news agency.
Qalibaf hailed the country’s technical know-how to produce uranium enriched to 60% fissile purity, saying the interval between making a decision and putting it into action in the nuclear industry has been minimized, Tasnim news agency reported.
In an act of sabotage last week, a section of the electricity distribution network at Shahid Ahmadi Roshan facility in Natanz was damaged with no pollution or casualties.
Tehran termed the act as ‘nuclear terrorism’ and responded with starting of %60 uranium enrichment. Intelligence forces have also identified the perpetrator of the sabotage.
