Iranian links to Delhi blast wouldn't be surprise: US

world Updated: Feb 17, 2012 10:55 IST

Still awaiting for the investigations results into attack on a Israeli diplomatic vehicle in New Delhi early this week, the United States on Thursday said that it would not be surprised if an Iranian link is identified in such an attack.

"We are still awaiting the results of the various investigations that are underway, and we are in contact with all of those governments," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters at her daily news conference.

"But, no definitive conclusions although, as we said yesterday, it wouldn't surprise us," Nuland said responding to a question if the US has found any Iranian link into these attacks, as is being alleged by Israel.

A motorcycle-borne assailant had stuck a bomb on a car in which an Israeli embassy employee was travelling that exploded injuring her and others in New Delhi.

"What I would say is that with regard to this bombing, the incidents in Delhi, incidents in Georgia, while we will await the results of the investigations, these events do come on the heels of other disrupted attacks targeted at Israel and Western interests, including an Iranian-sponsored attack in Baku, Azerbaijan, and a Hezbollah-linked attack in Bangkok, Thailand, before this," she had said early this week.
