Zarif digs on Israeli nuclear warheads

Iranian Prime Minister, Javad Zarif, has posted a tweet addressed to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI): “There are at least 80 nuclear warheads stationed in the Middle East. None are in Iran; rather, they're at the fingertips of a warmonger who howls incessantly about fabricated Iranian “ambitions”.
