An attack on Iranian nuclear facilities would be an "international crime," Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akbar Saleh was quoted as saying Tuesday.

In an interview with IRNA, Saleh said that the impact of such a strike would be global. "This is stipulated in the resolutions passed by the IAEA and the UN Security Council as well as in the resolution adopted at the close of the NPT Review Conference," he stressed.

Salehi's comments came after former US envoy to the UN John Bolton told Fox News Business that if Israel wants to prevent Iran from acquiring a working nuclear plant, a military strike must be launched against the Bushehr nuclear power facility within the next eight days.
