Security sources on Tuesday reportedly told AFP that Iran's nuclear program has cost Tehran $170 billion.

The majority of the estimated expenses were the result of crippling economic sanctions placed by the West on the Islamic Republic, the sources told AFP. According to the report, the sources told AFP that $40 billion of the $170 billion had been "invested over the past 20 years in the construction and operation of nuclear infrastructure".

The sources added that Iran has "lost $130 billion because of sanctions put in place since 2012".
