VIENNA — Egypt has accused Israel of "chutzpah" — blatant shamelessness — in unusually harsh comments at a 151-nation meeting on the issue of a nuclear-free Mideast.

The Egyptians issued the statement Wednesday after Israel accused Egypt of unfairly singling out the Jewish state while ignoring its own commitments to the IAEA.

Egypt in turn characterized the Israel comments as "demonstrating the full meaning of the world chutzpah" — a Hebrew world for blatant shamelessness.

The conference votes this week on an Arab-sponsored resolution urging Israel to open its nuclear activities to inspection.
