Cyber attacks will only increase Iran’s resolve to pursue its nuclear work, Ali Asghar Soltanieh, the country’s envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency, said according to the Asia Times.

Attacks by the Stuxnet or Flame viruses and the assassination of Iranian atomic scientists will boost Iran’s “determination to pursue its nuclear rights,” Soltanieh told the Hong-Kong based newspaper when asked about reports that President Barack Obama had authorized attacks on his country’s computer systems.

Soltanieh also said Iran will only consider ratifying the so-called Additional Protocol, which includes more intrusive inspections of its nuclear facilities, if its dossier is pulled from the UN Security Council.

Reports that Iran has cleansed its Parchin military complex to destroy evidence of nuclear weaponization, are “baseless noise based on lousy intelligence,” Soltanieh said according to the report dated yesterday.
