Things got heated at the UN General Assembly Thursday when Iran strongly denied hiding a warehouse full of nuclear materials.

The Iranian delegation accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of lying after he disclosed the location of alleged atomic sites outside Tehran.

Netanyahu claimed he was forced to act, because the international body tasked with monitoring Iran has refused to act on the information.

“Today, I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran,” he proclaimed. “A secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material from Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program.”

The Israeli prime minister took Iran’s denial in stride, accusing officials of spreading nuclear material across Tehran to hide the evidence.
