Iran warns Israel's nuclear arsenals, real threat to global peace

The Development and Proliferation of
Nuclear Weapons

Today eight countries are possessing nuclear weapons. The five nuclear weapons states United States, Russia (former Soviet Union), United Kingdom, France and China, are the only countries allowed to have nuclear weapons according to the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) from 1970. All members of the United Nations except Israel, India and Pakistan have signed the NPT.

TEHRAN (ISNA) - Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Mohammad Ali Hosseini warned Israel's nuclear arsenals are real threats to global peace and security.

Speaking at the third meeting of Preparatory Committee of 2010 Review Conference of Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Hosseini said Israel's disagreement with international demands for joining the treaty is the major obstacle against establishment of a Middle East free of nuclear arms.

Certain countries are triggering nuclear arm race through keeping their nuclear arsenals, transferring nuclear technology and material for nuclear weapons to non-members of NPT instead of taking concrete measures to help nuclear disarmament, he said.

The Iranian official added the US continuous nuclear cooperation with Israel violates its declared position on NPT. The US needs to end any kind of nuclear cooperation with Israel and call it to join NPT and annihilate its nuclear arsenals.

The fact that nuclear countries are not committed to nuclear disarmament has made non-unclear countries disappointed, he added.

He then continued Iran is a peace-seeking country and will ignore efforts for reaching to a global peace and a world free of nuclear arms.
