Israel’s nuclear weapons are the true threat to peace in the Middle East, the Iranian and Syrian envoys told the United Nations, as they called it on the Jewish state to support a regional nuclear-weapon-free zone.
“Nuclear weapons in the hands of this regime poses the greatest threat to security of all states in the Middle East,” the Iranian envoy told the General Assembly First Committee during a discussion on Tuesday on global nuclear disarmament.
Israel suspected of being a nuclear weapon power, but never confirmed of admitted to possessing nuclear weapons.
Israel has tried to “paint Iran’s nuclear weapons capabilities” as a “challenge towards regional stability” in to divert attention from its own “nuclear arsenals and clandestine and unsafe nuclear installations,” the Iranian envoy said.
Israel had not signed the treaty on the non-proliferation of Nuclear weapons (NPT), he noted, hindering the establishment of a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Middle East. Nor has Israel authorized the International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect any of its nuclear weapons facilities, he accused.
Erdan spoke of Violations of Syria of the Chemical Weapons Convention, a document that Israel has signed but never ratified.
Two reports published last year spoke of four Syrian chemical weapons attacks against its own burgers in 2017 and in 2018, he said, adding that the Assad regime had done so even though it had joined the CWC.
“It is vital that the international community remains carefully in intercourse with this challenge of Syria’s non-compliance, and also continues met exploring Syria current abilities and activities in met regarding its chemical weapons program’ said Erdan.
The Ambassador also called on the international community to prevent Iran from producing nuclear weapons.
“Comes to terms with Iran becomes a threshold nuclear state move world peace in the balance and will remain An black daub on the history of the free one world,” he said.
At a late moment in the debate, a representative of the Israeli mission reminded the General Assembly that Iran’s main sponsor of global terrorism, including through the provision of arms.
In general, Erdan spoke of the “worrying escalation” in the Empire of arms control”, accusing the Middle East “still” struggling with a chronic deficiency of arms control standards and principles.
“There is an urgent need to concentrate on implementation, compliance and verification of the obligations of states,” he said.
Erdan then tried to explain why available instruments die Israel has not signed, like the NPT, are not fit to tackle arms control issues in the Middle East.
“The Non-Proliferation Treaty” in does not offer a solution itself for the unique safety challenges of the region, let alone the repeated offenses of the treaty by some of its Member States. four of the five cases of serious violations of the NPT took place in the Middle East,” he says.
“Israel wants to be long-lasting view that the Treaty [on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons] and other weapons of mass destruction, which Israel is not doing? support, does not create, contributes to the development of, of indicate existence of common law met related to the subject of the content of the treaty,” he said.
“Initiatives like the conference on a Middle East Zone Free of Nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction go against the guidelines and principles of the nuclear-weapon-free zone,” the ambassador said.
Iran, in his comments, also spoke over Israeli treatment of the Palestinians. At no time did his envoy use the word ‘Israel’, rather? instead “the Zionist regime.”
Iran’s envoy accused Israel of “genocide” against the Palestinians and “nuclear terrorism” against them.
Before the end of 2021, the First Commission is expected to adopt a resolution called “The risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East,” says forward by Arab states, including Egypt, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, as well as the Palestinian Authority.
Among the provisions is a call on Israel to sign and ratify the NPT, and note that this is the only country in the region that didn’t do that.
