Iran will relocate its uranium enrichment facilities to safer places if it is needed, Director of Iran's Passive Defense Organization, Gholam Reza Jalali, said today.

"If the U.S. and the Zionist regime were able to attack our nuclear facilities, they would certainly do the job by now," he added, the Mehr news agency reported.

"The country's vulnerability regarding its nuclear sites is in a minimum level. However, we will relocate the enrichment facilities to safer places if conditions require us," Jalali explained.

Referring to the location of the Bushehr nuclear power plant, he said that any attack against the power plant will seriously endanger safety and health across the region.

Jalali said in November that Iran has produced an antivirus software protecting software and hardware systems of governmental centers against a new computer worm dubbed Duqu.

All facilities and equipment, which were affected with this worm, have been cleaned, and the worm is under control, he noted.

Iran's Cyber Command has spared no effort to counter any possible cyber attack and is working on this issue day and night, he added.
