Israel atomic chief says Iran is working on nuclear bomb

September 20, 2011 19:02

Iran is directly involved in activities related to the design and testing of nuclear weapons, head of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission (IAEC) Dr. Shaul Chorev warned on Tuesday in a speech at the General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.

Chorev addressed the meeting ahead of a vote expected later this week on a resolution submitted by Arab states to single out Israel for condemnation over its nuclear activities. The IAEC and the Foreign Ministry have spent the past few months recruiting states to vote down the resolution titled “Israeli Nuclear Capabilities.”
