Israel’s nuclear chief tells the International Atomic Energy Agency conference that Iran is “the leading factor” in instability in the Middle East, and that Israel will not accept Tehran obtaining a nuclear weapon.
“The ongoing unrest in the Middle East is a threat to peace and security worldwide, and requires the attention of all member states,” says Brig. Gen. (ret.) Moshe Edri, head of Israel’s Atomic Energy Commission. “One country is the leading factor in the instability of the region.”
In his address to the nuclear watchdog’s general assembly in Vienna, Edri reminds the body that Iran “has continuously failed to provide credible explanations, or clarifications, regarding the nature of these past activities, and continues to deceive the Agency and the international community concerning its clandestine nuclear activities.”
