Iran rejects Israel’s secret nuclear site claims
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif refuted claims made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Tehran has developed a secret nuclear site.
"No arts & craft show will ever obfuscate that Israel is only regime in our region with a 'secret' and 'undeclared' nuclear weapons program - including an 'actual atomic arsenal. Time for Israel to fess up and open its illegal nuclear weapons program to international inspectors," Zarif wrote on Twitter in response to Netanyahu’s claims.
"Iran has another secret facility in Tehran, a secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material from Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program,” Netanyahu had said in a speech to the UN General Assembly in New York.
He called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to investigate the site, saying Iran has already taken 33 pounds (15 kilograms) of nuclear material and spread it throughout Tehran to hide it, Anadolu Agency reported.
On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had claimed Iran has a second weapons facility for its nuclear weapons program.
