Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation has said that its nuclear plants were subjected to three attacks last year, noting that this did not affect its uranium production, Rai Al-Youm reported yesterday.

According to the news site, spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation, Behrouz Kamalvandi, said: "Our nuclear plants were subject to three damaging acts last year."

"This pressure and trick cannot undermine our peaceful nuclear programme, and the West recognised this reality.

Iran has been the victim of cyberattacks on its nuclear stations and government institutions. These come as the Islamic Republic begins negotiations to reinstate the 2015 nuclear deal with western powers.
