Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said in an interview with the Russian agency (Sputnik) published today, Friday, that the development of its nuclear capabilities by Iran “is a cause for concern for the countries of the Middle East”.

“People should understand that if Iran gets nuclear weapons, the nuclear arms race will start in Middle East “, added the minister in an interview during his visit to Moscow.

“There will be what can be called a manifestation of the gradual deterioration of the situation in the region if Iran acquires nuclear weapons,” he said, stressing the need to ensure that this never happens.
