Nuclear weapons, whose existence is acknowledged by Israeli ministers, should be investigated, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday, APA reports.

Speaking at an emergency joint Arab-Islamic summit in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, Erdogan said, “The issue of nuclear weapons, the existence of which was admitted by Israeli ministers, should be investigated. If there are nuclear bombs smuggled out of the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency, they must be revealed."

Regarding the cease-fire calls and permanent peace in the region, Erdogan said: “We are ready to make the necessary efforts, including as a guarantor, to preserve the peace that will be established.”

The oil-rich kingdom is hosting a joint summit of the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Representatives of the Islamic world gathered to exchange ideas about concrete steps to be taken regarding the recent developments.
