Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has dismissed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks, in which he claimed that the Islamic Republic has “secret atomic warehouse”.
Zarif has slammed Netanyahu’s claims, calling them “an arts and crafts show.”
“Israel is only regime in our region with a secret and undeclared nuclear weapons program — including an *actual atomic arsenal*,” he wrote on Twitter.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has also commented on the allegations.
“The world will only laugh loudly at this type of false, meaningless and unnecessary speech,” he said.
On Thursday, Netanyahu claimed during his address at the UN General Assembly that Tel Aviv had discovered Iran’s second secret atomic warehouse used to store nuclear-related material. According to him, Iranian officials were cleaning up the warehouse, which contained up to 300 tons of material.
