Russia declares that Israel should sign NPT

MOSCOW. March 2 (Interfax) – Russia wants Israel to join the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in order to create a nuclear-free zone in the Middle East, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

“This will only become possible when all countries in the region, including Israel, become NPT signatories and have their nuclear activities controlled by the International Atomic Energy Agency,” Lavrov said in an interview with a Syrian news agency posted on the Russian Foreign Ministry’s website on Friday.
