(Washington) The United States said, on Monday, that it was not involved in what Iran described as sabotage of the Natanz uranium enrichment plant.
“The United States has not intervened in any way,” White House spokeswoman Jane Psaki told reporters.
She added, “We have nothing to add to speculation about the causes or consequences” of this alleged attack.
On Monday, Tehran accused Israel of sabotaging the nuclear center, pledging revenge, and ramping up nuclear activities, while making diplomatic efforts to bring the Iran nuclear deal back on track.
The White House spokeswoman said indirect discussions on the matter should not be affected.
What we’re focusing on, of course, is the diplomatic channel. “We have not received any information indicating that participation in the discussions held on Wednesday has changed,” she said.
The European Union and Russia, who are participating in these diplomatic efforts, expressed their hope that the matter would not turn into nothing because of the Natanz “incident”.
More than 24 hours after the incident, the circumstances of the attack, its modus operandi, and the extent of the damage caused remain unclear.
