According to the Israeli media, the crash was the result of a cyber attack by the Israeli secret service Mossad. The Iranian nuclear program would have been severely damaged. The Israeli government has not confirmed or denied the allegations.
Rohani said the decision was in response to Israel’s “wickedness.” The country is ready to sabotage negotiations on a new nuclear deal.
He also said that the centrifuges damaged in the Natance attack would be replaced by more modern ones. This may speed up the enrichment process.
Iran In its 2015 nuclear deal with France, Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States, Russia and China, it was agreed that Iran could enrich uranium only for scientific and economic purposes. A concentration of 3.67 percent was sufficient for that. In response, sanctions against Iran will be lifted.
In 2018, the United States withdrew support for the deal. According to then-President Trump, the deal actually helped Iran continue to develop nuclear weapons. Iran also withdrew from the deal last year.
Negotiations are underway at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna to renew the agreement. President Biden is in favor of this, and Israel is against it.
