Iran thwarts Mossad nuclear sabotage bid: Iranian media
Iranian media reports that Tehran thwarted an attempt by a Mossad officer to reach the IR6 centrifuges at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plan
An Israeli Mossad officer made an attempt to reach the IR6 centrifuges at the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, Iranian media reported Monday.
"The Mossad recruited one of the neighbors of the plant's workers, and he was trained and given technical preparation," local media said, revealing that "Tel Aviv" wanted to carry out its plan before Nowruz.
Iranian media also highlighted that the intelligence apparatus of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps arrested the members of the Mossad network.
Iranian state TV noted that the Israeli occupation has long been looking to sabotage the Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plant, as it is the most significant reactor in the Islamic Republic, but so far, all their attempts have been unsuccessful.
Vienna talks on hold temporarily: Iran FM
Tehran is looking for a good, reliable, and sustainable nuclear agreement through the Vienna talks, Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said Monday. "The Iranian red lanes are not a waste of time," he added.
During a phone call with his Omani counterpart Sayyid Badr Albusaidi, Amir-Abdollahian said Iran was "very serious about reaching a good, reliable, and sustainable nuclear agreement."
"The chief Iranian negotiator is continuing to work hard to reach a good, strong, and sustainable agreement in Vienna," the top Iranian diplomat said, noting that resolving and separating the remaining issues, which are part of Iran's red lines, had to do with Washington, "And they are not a waste of time."
Amir-Abdollahian also clarified that the Vienna talks were merely on hold, not on a permanent hiatus, revealing that the break happened with coordination with the coordinator of the European Union.
The Omani foreign minister said he hoped the parties to the talks in the Austrian capital strike a deal.
A few days ago, EU Foreign Policy Chief Josep Borrell announced the suspension of the Vienna nuclear talks, while Iranian sources reported that there were still "two or three issues" that still needed to be resolved.
