Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad 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.
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.— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) September 27, 2018
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, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed during his address at the UN General Assembly that Israel 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 tonnes of material.
In April, Netanyahu claimed that Israel had captured the so-called Atomic Archive of Iran, allegedly proving that Tehran preserved its nuclear weapons program. The allegations have repeatedly denied by the Iranian authorities.
