Israel’s Nukes Threaten Region

Iran’s deputy ambassador to the United Nations warned of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East as an outcome of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and its refusal to join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
Addressing a meeting of the United Nations Disarmament Commission in New York on Tuesday, Gholamhossein Dehqani highlighted Tehran’s commitment to establishing a nuclear weapon-free zone in the Middle East.
The envoy described the Tel Aviv regime as the main source of concern about proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the region.
According to the UN website, Dehqani said there was no promising indication that nuclear-weapon states were contemplating the total elimination of their arsenals, as evidenced by the huge budgets and programs devoted to their modernization in the United States and the United Kingdom.
“The United States was in obvious non-compliance with its nuclear disarmament commitments,” he said, adding that all nuclear-weapon states must comply with their legal obligations under the NPT and their unequivocal commitment to accomplish the total elimination of their nuclear weapons.
