Iran Mission calls on EU to strongly condemn Natanz attack

TEHRAN, Apr. 13 (MNA) – Embassy of Iran to Belgium and Iran Mission in European Union called on the EU to strongly condemn the attack as a threat to international peace and security.

In a tweet on Monday,  Iran Mission in European Union wrote, "The int'l community should not take the recent attack on #Natanz lightly."

"The EU is requested to strongly condemn this attack as a threat to int'l peace and security and as a deliberate act of terrorism against Iran’s internationally monitored civilian nuclear facilities," it added.

The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said on Sunday that an incident took place in a part of the electricity distribution network of Shahid Ahmadi Roshan facility in Natanz.

In his reaction to the incident that occurred in Natanz Nuclear Site,  Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Chief Ali-Akbar Salehi said that Iran reserves the rights to act against perpetrators of the Natanz incident.

Natanz is a uranium enrichment center located in the city of the same name in Iran’s central province of Isfahan.

It is among the sites being monitored by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) under a 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
