“Israel’s atomic weapons are the true threat to Middle East peace, the Iranian and Syrian envoys alleged to the United Nations as they called on the Jewish state to support a regional nuclear-free zone. ‘Nuclear weapons in the hands of this regime pose the most serious threat to the security of all states in the Middle East,’ the Iranian envoy told the General Assembly’s First Committee during a discussion Tuesday on global nuclear disarmament. … Israel had not signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), he noted, and hampers the establishment of a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East. Nor has Israel allowed the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect any of its nuclear weapons facilities, he charged.” (10/13/21)
