Iranian FM: Israel’s N. arsenals threatening global peace

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned nations about the dangerous threat posed by Israel’s nuclear arsenals to global peace and security.

Speaking to reporters in New York on Monday, Zarif stated that we must not allow those who have slaughtered the Palestinian nation over the past 60 years, and their atomic weapons pose a threat to the region and the world, to blackmail the international community in the name of disarmament and human rights.

He added that the international community should not allow Netanyahu to continue his lies and allegations about Iran’s nuclear energy program at the UN, noting that Israel must not get a chance to insult the world public intelligence and carry out its inhumane policies.

The Israeli regime has been saying for the past 22 years that Iran would produce a nuclear bomb in six months, Zarif said, emphasizing that Iran will not allow warmongering groups to use trumped-up charges to pursue their heinous objectives.

Israel is believed to be the sole possessor of nuclear arms in the Middle-East with over 200 ready-to-launch warheads in its stockpile.

Iran, an Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)-signatory, has also called for the removal of all weapons of mass destruction from across the globe.
