Iranian regime caught seeking nuclear weapons technology in Sweden


As the Biden administration tries to temporarily restrict Tehran from building an atomic bomb, a damning new Swedish intelligence report accuses the Islamic Republic of Iran of illegal attempts to secure nuclear weapons technology in the Scandinavian nation by 2021.

The Swedish document questions the effectiveness of the controversial Iran nuclear deal, which will reward the clerical regime with up to $275 billion in economic benefits during the first year of an agreement and as much as $1 trillion by 2030, according to one estimate.

The formal name for the intelligence report – the Swedish Security Yearbook – revealed, “Iran also carries out industrial espionage, such as primarily targeting the Swedish high-tech industry and Swedish products that could be used in a nuclear weapons program.”

The 80-page intelligence report summarizing national security threats to Sweden notes, “Iranian intelligence officers act under diplomatic cover in Sweden, among other things.”

In response to a TBEN News Digital press question, a spokesperson for the Swedish Security Service said: “The Swedish Security Service considers Iran to be one of the three countries that pose the greatest security threat to Sweden and Swedish interests. The other two are Russia and China.”

When asked about the nature of Iran’s efforts to secure illegal nuclear weapons technology, the spokesman said, “As a national security agency, much of our information comes from classified intelligence. We cannot go into more detail than stated in the Yearbook.”

Iranian-Swedish human rights activist Laleh Bazargan told TBEN News Digital: “Iran’s Islamic regime is not a normal government” and the regime “is built on the foundation of killing dissidents, hostage-taking, bombings, terrorist attacks and creating chaos. “

Bazargan added: “This regime is a bully that sits on lucrative oil and gas resources, and that is why the free world has negotiated and accepted its crude actions. Enough is enough. Europe and the US need to understand that this regime is a danger to the world security and must be crushed the same way Hitler was crushed.”

Bazargan testified in a Stockholm court against former Iranian regime official Hamid Nouri, who was convicted in July of war crimes in connection with the 1988 massacre of political prisoners in Iran.

The Trump administration has sanctioned Iran’s current president, Ebrahim Raisi, for his role in the 1988 mass execution of 5,000 Iranian prisoners. The theocratic state executed Bazargan’s brother, Bijan, in waves of murders in 1988 to exterminate dissidents. rowing.

The Swedish intelligence reports added new evidence to claims that the Iranian regime is working on a nuclear weapons program. The Swedish government released the report in March and TBEN News Digital translated sections about Iran’s covert attempts to obtain illegal nuclear technology and its surveillance in the northern European country.


President Trump has said the Iran deal fails to stop Tehran from building a nuclear weapons device and has simply pumped billions into Iran’s terror-sponsoring system. As a result, Trump withdrew from the deal in 2018. Biden believes a US return to the deal will help curb Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions.

The US State Department has identified the Iranian regime as the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism.

In June, TBEN News Digital first reported on a German intelligence report, stating that Iran was stepping up its efforts to obtain technology for its nuclear weapons program.

According to the German report, “German domestic intelligence services were able to identify a significant increase in indications of Iran’s proliferation-related procurement attempts for its nuclear program.”

The German intelligence report from the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution defines proliferation as “acquiring know-how and products for the development and production of weapons of mass destruction and delivery technologies.”
