RIYADH - The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) on Sunday urged Iran to ensure the safety of its nuclear plants after an earthquake hit Iran's Bushehr city last week, state-run Saudi Press Agency reported.

Top officials and experts from all GCC member countries held an urgent meeting here in Riyadh to discuss the repercussions of the recent earthquake in Iran, which is close to its Bushehr nuclear plant and left at least 37 people dead, the report said.

In a statement following the meeting, the GCC officials urged Iran to ensure the safety of its nuclear establishments and called on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to inspect the nuclear plants in Bushehr to examine possible radiation leaks after the earthquake.
