Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif Friday refuted claims from Israel that Tehran was ‘harbouring’ a secret atomic warehouse, PTI reported.

“No arts & craft show will ever obfuscate that Israel is only regime in our region with a *secret* and *undeclared* nuclear weapons program,” Zarif said in a tweet.

He called on Israel saying it was “time to fess up and open its illegal nuclear weapons” programme to international inspectors.

Earlier, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday in a speech to the UN General Assembly had held up a map and a photograph of an outwardly “innocent looking compound” which he said was a secret atomic warehouse in Tehran and urged the UN atomic agency to inspect.

“Today, I’m disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran, a secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and materiel from Iran’s secret nuclear weapons programme,” he had said.
