On Tuesday, Khatami slammed Netanyahu's speech as "Israel's provocative actions" and promised that Tehran would take actions in response.
"This is our warning to the regime occupying Jerusalem and its supporters – stop your dangerous behavior. The Iranian response will be surprising and you will regret it," Khatami stressed, as cited by Haaretz.
The comment comes after Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif mocked Netanyahu's remarks on Twitter, saying that Israel's revelations came in the run-up to the Trump administration's planned announcement regarding the Iran nuclear deal on May 12.
Pres. Trump is jumping on a rehash of old allegations already dealt with by the IAEA to “nix” the deal. How convenient. Coordinated timing of alleged intelligence revelations by the boy who cries wolf just days before May 12. But Trump’s impetuousness to celebrate blew the cover. https://t.co/5gxmmZcrF7— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) April 30, 2018
Netanyahu stated on Monday that Tehran had been cheating despite signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by continuing to develop its nuclear weapons for future use. Israel has obtained about 100,000 files allegedly proving that the nuclear program had a military dimension called the "Amad Project," despite Iran being obliged to maintain a strictly peaceful program under the agreement.
Meanwhile, Israel on Tuesday invited teams of experts from Germany, the United Kingdom and France to examine Israel's intelligence on Iran’s nuclear program. A high-ranking Israeli source also told Sputnik that Benjamin Netanyahu had informed Russian President Vladimir Putin about the data and invited a team of experts to assess the documents.
