VIENNA: Saudi Arabia has urged the international community and atomic energy experts to step up efforts to curb Iran’s nuclear program.

During a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s board of governors, the Kingdom stressed that all necessary measures must be taken to stop Tehran from developing nuclear-related military technologies.

The permanent representative of the Kingdom to international organizations in Vienna, Yehya Sharahili, called on inspectors to probe deeper into Iran’s nuclear activities and expose sites capable of being used to carry out secret programs.

Addressing delegates at the meeting, Sharahili said: “The international community cannot disregard Iran’s true intentions because of its aggressiveness and its tendency toward expansion and hegemony by military means.”
