Iran: Israel's Nuclear Arsenal Endangers Middle East

Ali Asghar Soltanieh, Iran's head delegate to the International Atomic Energy Agency, said, Thursday, that Israel's atomic arsenal endangers the Middle East. Israel has never confirmed or denied that it has nuclear weapons. Responding during on debate on Israel's alleged nuclear capabilities and a call for all nations of the region to join the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, chief Israeli delegate Ehud Azoulay said it was Iran which represented the greatest threat.

United States delegate Robert Wood said that concentrating on Israel would not serve the interest of ridding the region of nuclear weapons but actually achieve the opposite.
