Saudi Arabia underscored on Monday the importance of finding mechanisms to tighten control on military nuclear sites in Iran and enhance inspections.
This demand was made by Ambassador Nabil al-Ashri, acting chargé d'affaires at the Saudi embassy in Austria, while addressing a meeting of the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency at the United Nations office in Vienna.
Director General of IAEA Yukiya Amano chaired the meeting, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

A-Ashri said inspections must cover nuclear sites that Iran is likely to use to carry out undeclared nuclear activities and target the security of the region.
The ambassador also refuted the allegations made by the Iranian ambassador against the Kingdom during the meeting.
“The Kingdom will continue its efforts to counter and combat terrorism in the region, which Iran has generously supported through terrorist militias,” Al-Ashri said while exuding the Kingdom’s confidence over the ability and efficiency of the IAEA and its inspectors to carry out the verification and monitoring of Iran’s declared and undeclared nuclear military programs.
