Iran has halted its controversial nuclear activities in return for a loosening of international sanctions that are due to take effect imminently.
The exchange follows threats from Iran's Revolutionary Guards to avenge the assault on a military parade. Iran-US ties have worsened after President Donald Trump renewed sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear program.
A deadly attack on an Iranian military parade demonstrates the country is internally vulnerable. Analysts say the regime is likely to respond with a tougher line at home and in the wider region.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has dismissed Israeli claims that Tehran has a secret atomic warehouse. Zarif also called on Israel to open its "illegal nuclear weapons" program to international inspectors.
Mourners gathered in the southwestern city of Ahvaz on Monday for the funerals of the victims of Saturday's terrorist attack. Meanwhile, the United States has rejected Iran's accusations of US involvement.
