Saboteurs have tried to damage Iran's uranium enrichment plants by bombing power lines to the sites, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Fereydoun Abbasi said Monday in Vienna, DPA reported.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) might be involved in the incidents, Abbasi noted.
His comments at the IAEA's annual general conference came amid efforts by the nuclear agency to start investigating alleged nuclear weapons projects in Iran. Also Monday, the European Union announced plans to resume nuclear talks with Iran.
"Terrorists and saboteurs might have intruded in the agency and might be making decisions covertly," Abbasi said.
On August 17, electric power lines supplying the fortified Fordow enrichment site near Qom were cut with the use of explosives, he said, adding that power outages lead to damages of uranium centrifuges.
