Uranium particles were detected at an undeclared site in Iran.

The Saudi cabinet on Tuesday condemned what it called Iran's 'deception' over its nuclear programme, after Tehran's decision to re-start atomic activities at one of its key sites.

A cabinet session chaired by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, expressed its "denunciation of Iran's continued deception and delays in providing the required information on its nuclear programme to the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency)", according to the official Saudi Press Agency.

The IAEA, the UN's nuclear watchdog, said in a report on Monday that uranium particles were detected at an undeclared site in Iran.

The report also confirmed that Iran has ramped up uranium enrichment, in breach of a landmark 2015 deal with international powers.
