Saudi Arabia government lashes out against Iran over nuclear program violation: Report

RIYADH - Saudi Arabia government lashes out against Iran over nuclear program violation.

Saudi Arabia’s Council of Ministers condemned on Tuesday Iran’s violations of international agreements related to its nuclear program, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

The condemnation came in the Council of Ministers session on Tuesday, according to SPA.

In November, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced Iran will resume uranium enrichment at its Fordow plant. Rouhani added Tehran will start injecting uranium gas into 1,044 centrifuges, which was considered the latest step away from the 2015 nuclear deal.

Last week the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the United Nations’ nuclear watchdog, said it had detected uranium particles at an undeclared site in Iran in its latest report on the country’s nuclear program.

Saudi Arabia has previously called on Iran to fully cooperate with the Internat-ional Atomic Energy Agency.

This came in a speech delivered in November by Prince Abdullah bin Khalid bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi Ambassador to the Republic of Austria and the Kingdom’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and international organizations in Vienna.
