Tehran (IP)- Iran's foreign ministry spokesman says E3 and US should stop pretending to be asleep on Israel's nuclear weapons.

Iran PressIran News: "The Israeli regime, as the world's number one JCPOA hater, happens to be NPT-denier and the only nuke-possessor of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. We know this. The world knows this," tweeted Saeed Khatibzadeh.

"Time for E3/US to stop pretending to be asleep on Israel's nuclear weapons," the tweet reads.

"They can pursue diplomacy—or pursue the opposite. We're ready for both," the tweet ends.

Although Israel has maintained its nuclear-ambiguous policy since its founding, military and industry officials predict the Jewish state has at least 90 nuclear warheads in its arsenal. Israel never signed the 1968 Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT).

Israel is one of the owners of nuclear weapons in the Middle East region; the regime has never announced to have such weapons, it has never rejected the issue either.
