NUCLEAR: Israel Cannot Confront Iran's Nuclear Weapons Program Alone
The international community should pressure Iran to stop its uranium enrichment program and block the Islamic government’s access to atomic weapons technology, Israel’s former deputy defense minister Efraim Sneh says in an interview in Rome with Radio Farda. While the Islamic government’s nuclear policy directly challenges Israel’s security, Israel believes that it is the duty of the world community to pressure Iran to end its nuclear weapons program and abandon its uranium enrichment program, former Israeli deputy defense Minister Efraim Sneh tells Radio Farda’s Rome correspondent Ahmad Ra’afat.
News reports about preparation for a possible Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities are baseless, he says. “There have been some discussions about this, but there is no such plan in our agenda.”
The Islamic government’s nuclear program is not just Israel’s problem, he adds. “It endangers peace and stability in the Persian Gulf, the entire Arab world, Europe and the US. One country alone cannot uproot such a far-reaching problem; it needs a broad cooperation.”
“Citing possible Israeli attack, the Islamic government tries to justify its pressure on the Iranian people. The intended audience for the Islamic republic authorities’ accusations about Israel’s intentions is only to scare the Iranian people and justify the regime’s pressure.”
