Israel threatening world security

In-depth Report:

Iran’s ambassador to the IAEA has said that Israel’s nuclear capabilities are a potential threat to both international and regional security.

Ali Asghar Soltaniyeh told Press TV that over 100 countries in the general conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency have condemned Israel for not cooperating with the IAEA.

The Zionist regime has refused to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and it is believed that the regime has about 200 nuclear warheads capable of being mounted on long-range missiles and a stockpile of chemical and biological weapons.

“Although the US has always vetoes the UN Security Council’s resolutions against Israel, it could not do so in the IAEA’s general conference,” he added.

Commenting on Iran’s cooperation with IAEA, Soltaniyeh noted that Iran has always been open to IAEA inspections.

Asked whether Iran has benefited from remaining within the NPT framework, he responded that Iran has been deprived from benefiting from the NPT because of the unfair treatment of the West.

He also noted that Iran has not withdrawn from the NPT and this makes clear the country is not pursuing nuclear capabilities for anything other than civil purposes.
