The Iranian foreign minister has accused Israel of making a “very bad gamble” following an attack on Iran’s Natanz nuclear site, which he said would only make negotiations over Tehran’s return to a 2015 nuclear deal more difficult.
“Israel played a very bad gamble if it thought that the attack will weaken Iran’s hand in the nuclear talks,” Javad Zarif said at a news conference in the Iranian capital. “On the contrary, it will strengthen our position.”
