UAE calls for UN-led effort to clear WMD

posted on 19/11/2005: 656 views


The UAE has called for the launch of UN-led international fair, sound practical initiative to clear the Middle East region from the weapons of mass destruction. 'The international community, spearheaded by the UN, are demanded to launch a balanced, just initiative to rid the region of WMD,' said General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister.



'The initiative should be applied by all countries without bias and double standards, Sheikh Mohammed said in an interview with the 'Dira'a Al Watan' magazine of the UAE Armed Forces on the eve of the opening of the 9th edition of Dubai Air Show on November 20. Sheikh Mohammed warned that these weapons if exploded could destroy everything made by man in the world.



'WMD pose a real danger not only to their possessors but also to the surrounding region and the whole world at large...... they are a source of worry to peace and stability and it is better for states acquiring them to take the lead in getting rid of them to protect humanity,' he said.
