Israel is denying allegations that it deployed a computer virus to spy on the Iranian nuclear negotiations in Vienna, Austria, Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely said.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, cyber security experts reported finding a computer virus in the networks of three hotels in Austria that are linked to the Iran nuclear negotiations.

“There is no basis to all the international reports on Israel’s involvement in the affair,” Hotovely stated in a Thursday interview on Israel’s IDF Radio.

The Stuxnet virus was used by Israel and the United States to attack the Iranian nuclear program in 2007.

Hotovely argued that Israel’s priority regarding the Iran nuclear talks is to prevent “a bad agreement.”

Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan denounced the accusations of espionage as “utter nonsense” when the report was released on Wednesday.

"We [Israel] already have sufficient methods to find out what is going on in the talks… without having to resort to hacking,” Ben-Dahan said.

The deadline for the Iranian nuclear talks is set for the end of June 2015. The Israeli government has been among the staunchest critics of the potential international agreement to set parameters on Iran’s nuclear program.
