Iranian Intelligence Minister:
Iranian Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi said German and French intelligence services cooperated with Iran's arch foes in the assassination of the country's nuclear scientists.
Addressing a congregation of worshippers on Tehran University campus on Friday, Moslehi said that other intelligence services in the region - including the Israeli Mossad - also took part in the campaign targeting the scientists to set back its nuclear program. 

"In these two networks (involved in the assassinations) we saw connections with the information services in Germany, France, Britain, Israel, the United States and regional intelligence agencies," Moslehi said. 

"The recently dismantled networks of assassination and bombing were in coordination with main services," Moslehi said. "France, Germany, Israel's Mossad, CIA , MI6 and all regional services served each other," he added. 

Moslehi said that the architects of the scientists' assassinations had been identified and arrested, adding that his ministry has a close watch on all the enemies' trends and wings and are prepared to confront them. 

He added that the ministry has gained many successes both inside and outside the country. 

Last week, Iran announced that its intelligence forces had identified and arrested all terrorist elements behind the assassination of the country's nuclear scientists. 

"All the elements involved in the assassination of the country's nuclear scientists have been identified and arrested," the Intelligence Ministry announced in a statement. 

A number of countries, whose territories and facilities had been misused by the Mossad-backed terrorist teams have revealed the relevant information to Tehran, the statement added. 

According to the statement, Iran's Intelligence Ministry had detected some Mossad bases within the territories of one of Iran's Western neighbors, which provided training and logistic support for the terrorist networks. 

Last month, Moslehi had announced that the country's security forces have arrested at least 20 terrorists behind the assassination of Iran's nuclear scientists. 

Moslehi stated that the arrests were made following the identification of two terrorist groups and through multiple sting operations across the country. 

Western spy agencies have assassinated several Iranian scientists in the last three years. 

In the fifth attack of its kind in two years, terrorists killed a 32-year-old Iranian scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, and his driver on January 11. 

The blast took place on the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Iranian university professor and nuclear scientist, Massoud Ali Mohammadi, who was also assassinated in a terrorist bomb attack in Tehran in January 2010. 

The assassination method used in the bombing was similar to the 2010 terrorist bomb attacks against the then university professor, Fereidoun Abbassi Davani - who is now the head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization - and his colleague Majid Shahriari. While Abbasi Davani survived the attack, Shahriari was martyred. 

Another Iranian scientist, Dariush Rezaeinejad, was also assassinated through the same method on 23 July 2011.
