UN Arab Group denounces Israeli refusal of NPT.
At the general discussion of the United Nations Disarmament Commission (UNDC), Egyptian Ambassador to the UN, Moataz Ahmadein Khalil, denounced on behalf of the Arab Group the Israeli refusal to accede to the Treaty.
"The Group emphasizes the need to place all nuclear facilities in the Middle East under comprehensive International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards, achieve the universality of the NPT and force Israel to accede to it" he said.
He urged the international community to support the efforts for the success of the upcoming conference on the establishment of a nuclear-weapon-free zone in the Middle East. The conference will be held in Finland.
