Kayhan Newspaper in its “Special News Column” on Thursday (November 13) said that the Zionist regime is shedding crocodile tears for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). The following is the translation of the report:
The Zionist regime’s deputy foreign minister has said that Iran is a big threat which can target Israel with its long-range missiles.
Israel’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Tzachi Hanegbi, has told Die Welt, a German daily newspaper, Tehran can target Israel with its long-range missiles. The gravest threat is that the fundamentalist Iranian regime acts illogically.
He also claimed that if the West accepts uranium enrichment by Iran, other countries will press for the same thing and this translates into the end of the NPT.
Hanegbi’s remarks came as the illegitimate Israeli regime, which is in possession of several nuclear warheads, is dragging its feet over signing up to the NPT, something which would call for monitoring the Israeli nuclear program.
A conference focusing on the proposed Middle East free of nuclear weapons was slated to be held in Helsinki, Finland last year to pile pressures on Tel Aviv and supervise the regime’s atomic activities, but it was put off thanks to US pressures.
Under the NPT, members of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are entitled to uranium enrichment.
