Tehran: Israel’s nuclear espionage claims ‘laughably absurd’

July 20, 2018 - 21:36

TEHRAN – Alireza Miryousefi, spokesman at Iran’s mission to the United Nations, has dismissed as “absurd” Israel’s claims that agents with the regime’s Mossad spy agency had stolen secret documents on Iran’s nuclear program from a site in southern Tehran, ISNA reported on Thursday.

“Iran has always been clear that production of weapons of mass destruction is against the country’s national values,” Miryousefi said after the New York Times reported details of Mossad’s purported operation.

“The idea that Iran would abandon such sensitive information in some random warehouse in Tehran is laughably absurd,” he added.
