Text : Zarif said in an excerpt of an interview set to air Sunday on CBS s Face the Nation that Netanyahu s latest attempt at the United Nations General Assembly, in which he put on show pictures of an alleged Iranian nuclear weapons storage site, was meant to conceal the regime s own nuclear arsenal. "He s just trying to find a smokescreen ... Nonsense, said Zarif of Netanyahu s accusations. The top Iranian diplomat said that Netanyahu had repeatedly been proven wrong in his claims about Iran s nuclear program as shown by recurrent probes of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). He s been wrong about the previous [allegations] and he s wrong about this one, said Zarif, adding, The previous allegations that Netanyahu made have been investigated by the IAEA and have been rejected. Zarif had earlier dismissed Netanyahu s claims about Iran s secret nuclear sites, saying in a tweet on Thursday that the Israeli regime was the only entity in the world that had always refused to disclose facts about its nuclear weapons. 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, said the Iranian foreign minister in a tweet on Thursday. The IAEA has issued 12 reports on Iran s compliance with terms of an international agreement on the country s nuclear program which was signed in July 2015 between Tehran and six world powers.
