NAM slams nuclear meeting cancellation, urges Israel to join NPT

Press TV – December 1, 2012

fathi20121201082104310The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) has criticized the cancellation of a conference on banning nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

In a statement issued on Friday, NAM strongly condemned the opposition of the US, Russia, Britain and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to the conference that was originally scheduled to be held in Finland’s capital, Helsinki, in December, upon an agreement reached during the 2010 NPT Review Conference.

The movement emphasized that the conference should be held before the end of 2012, voicing the NAM member states’ full support for the establishment of a Middle East region free of nuclear weapons.

It also urged the Israeli regime, the only non-signatory to the NPT in the Middle East, to destroy its nuclear weapons, place its nuclear facilities under the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) supervision and carry out all its atomic activities in accordance with international non-proliferation regulations.

On November 23, the US announced that the Helsinki conference cannot be convened at this point due to the special conditions in the Middle East.

The major event has reportedly been cancelled on US worries that its long-time ally in the region, the Israeli regime, would come under fire as the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

Israel is widely known to possess between 200 and 400 nuclear warheads.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Ambassador to the United Nations Mohammad Khazaei called on Friday for joint efforts to pursue the idea of creating a Middle East region free of weapons of mass destruction.

He said that the nuclear weapons of Israel, which has a dark background in state terrorism and resorting to aggression, threat and bullying against other countries, are a real threat to regional and international peace.

“It is necessary that the international community swiftly and firmly counter this threat,” the Iranian envoy pointed out.

The Israeli regime rejects all the regulatory international nuclear agreements – the NPT in particular – and refuses to allow its nuclear facilities to come under international regulatory inspections.

  1. Israel has NEVER been an ally of the United States. It has continuously interfered in the internal affairs of the United States. It was involved in the assassinations of the President John F. Kennedy and later his brother, then US Senator Robert F. Kennedy. Israel attacked with intent to sink the USS Liberty as a pretext to get the US to drop two hydrogen bombs on Egypt in 1967.

    Fast forward to 9/11 and you have clear evidence that Mossad agents, along with US-Israeli citizens, planned and executed the psychological warfare attack on the American mind, to get allow the George W. Bush regime to launch its wars of aggression in Iraq, Afghanistan, and now Syria, with Iran the next prime target of Zionist imperial ambition for the greater glory of Eretz Israel.:

    Israel is the enemy of humanity. It wants no friends, just willful co-conspirators and victims. The pretense of religion is just that. No one could believe in God and do what they do, gleefully!

    Israel is no friend, it is a Trojan Horse, stable, herd that needs to conquered, disarmed, and removed from Palestine completely. And BTW, I do not want them in the United States, especially any member if the IDF or West Bank. Obama is Zionist asset, his estrangement from Netanyahu is more theater than fact as I see it. If that was not true, then he should have been arrested when in the US as a war criminal and key conspirator in 9/11. The enlightened world knows this, but lack the courage of their convictions, which goes beyond apathy; into being an accessory after the fact! And I do on the radio, in coffee houses, and so should everyone with a venue, not merely raise the question, but answer it too!

    BTW, Wayne Madsen did a piece on ‘Medical Assassination’ was excellent and I thank you for it, very much.:
