On 07 July 2004 Muhammad el-Baradei, the head of the United Nations' atomic energy watchdog, met with Israeli energy officials to discuss ways of ridding the Middle East of nuclear weapons. He said he was ready to discuss Israel's concerns about Iran's nuclear ambitions. El-Baradei had said he wanted Israel to begin a dialogue to rid the Middle East of nuclear weapons, but will not force it to publicly reveal whether it has nuclear weapons. Israel's so-called "ambiguity policy" is to neither admit nor deny whether it has nuclear arms.
