UN delegates demand Israel to join NPT

Delegates at the UN have discussed the issue of a Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction, urging the Israeli regime to sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).

During a Tuesday meeting at the United Nations headquarters in New York, the delegates discussed the prospects of bringing about a Middle East free of WMDs.

Addressing the meeting, Russian Foreign Ministry Security and Disarmament Department Director Mikhail Ulyanov voiced concern over Israel’s undeclared nuclear arms and said the regime “must be cooperative.”

Iran’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Gholam Hossein Dehqani also called for more strict measures toward Tel Aviv for the success of the UN drive for a WMD-free Mideast.

Israel is widely believed to be the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East, with estimated 200-400 nuclear warheads.

The Israeli regime rejects all regulatory international nuclear agreements, including the NPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear facilities to come under international regulatory inspections.
