Zarif: Time for Israel to open its nuclear arsenal to inspectors

Tehran, Iran's foreign minister urged the Zionist regime of Israel to admit to and open its 'undeclared' nuclear arsenal to UN inspectors.

'No arts and 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*,' said Mohammad-Javad Zarif in a tweet on Friday with a reference to the allegations made by the Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu at the United Nations General Assembly.

Netanyahu accused Iran of having a 'secret warehouse' of nuclear material. He also scolded the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for neglecting the alleged warehouse.

The IAEA has repeatedly confirmed Iran's commitment to its obligations under the nuclear deal, with its latest report having been released on August 30.

'Time for Israel to fess up and open its illegal nuclear weapons program to international inspectors,' the Iranian foreign minister added in his tweet.

Although not having confirmed, Israel is widely believed to have a mass of nuclear weapons.

The regime has refused to join non-proliferation treaty (NPT) despite pressure from the international community.
