Israel in no position to level nuclear accusation at Iran: Zarif

Press TV – September 28, 2018

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has lashed out at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his baseless claims against Iran at his UN speech, saying Tel Aviv is in no position to level such accusations against Tehran.

“Netanyahu must explain how Israel, as the only possessor of nuclear weapons in the Middle East region, can put itself in a position to level such brazen accusations against a country whose [nuclear] program has been repeatedly declared peaceful by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA),” Zarif told IRNA on Thursday.

The senior Iranian diplomat’s comments came after the Israeli prime minister once again took the stage at the UN on Thursday to put on another spectacle about Iran’s nuclear program, repeating his threadbare allegation that the country is working to develop nuclear weapons at “secret” sites.

Zarif said Netanyahu’s move is only aimed at deflecting attention from the fact that the Israeli regime is “the biggest threat to the Middle East” given that he stands by a nuclear weapons facility and threatens other states with atomic annihilation, Zarif noted.

“The Tel Aviv regime will never manage to achieve anything by playing such games,” the Iranian foreign minister added.

“We have seen in recent days the extent of the US’ isolation at the UN General Assembly and the Security Council as a result of the policies Netanyahu has imposed on Washington. Now imagine how isolated the Israelis themselves are when they have managed to haul the US into such isolation,” Zarif stated.

Meanwhile, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi strongly dismissed Netanyahu’s UN show as “ridiculous” and a fabricated scenario aimed at making up for the failed US and Israeli smear campaign against Iran at the UN General Assembly.

“The occupying regime [of Israel] must know that in the new era, the world will only laugh out loud at such false, inconsiderate and empty remarks and fake shows,” Qassemi told journalists on Thursday.

He referred to the IAEA as the only body responsible for dealing with nuclear issues, saying that 12 reports issued by the UN atomic watchdog and verified by the global community and all relevant parties have so far confirmed Iran’s commitment to its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

  1. Javad Zarif is 100% correct in his condemnation of Bibi. Nutjobyahu. Bibi is the greatest hypocrite on the planet, and it is SO obvious who the villain is in the Middle East. If the President of the USA had any integrity at all, he would pull Bibi into line, but he won’t because he has NO POWER to do so. Israel owns the USA, and how the American people(the innocent party in all this) put up with the humiliation of it is beyond me.

    Take you country back, America, and restore your dignity.

  3. Zionist “Samson Option” Israel is in no position to speak. Being the only nuclear power in the Middle East and the longest lasting human rights abuser in the world. When Israelis take a Palestinian life they scream, “anti-semitism!” When Israeli college students visit the U.S. every year and deface Jewish Cemeteries and synagogues, they scream,”antisemitism!” They should be banned from speaking in the UN. Make them sign the Nuclear proliferation act, claim their borders, have their lobbying entities sign up as foreign entities, have hearings for humans rights abuses since 1947. They must begin to pay reparations to the Palestinian people indefinitely just like Germany. Also cut all foreign aid to Hertzlstan.
