UAE warns against the danger of allowing Israel to maintain its nuclear arsenal

New York - The UAE has warned against the danger of allowing Israel to maintain its nuclear arsenal at a time when peace and stability in the region are at a stake. "Despite incessant efforts by Arab countries, including the UAE, to make the Middle Eastern region a nuclear-free area, global peace and stability are a stake as a result of the Israeli intransigence to maintain its nuclear arsenal+, said Hend Abdul Aziz Nasser Al Owais, member of the UAE delegation to the UN.”

The UAE also urged the international community to back two proposals being put forward by the Arab bloc at the UN to address the danger of continued Israeli possession of weapons of mass destruction. One of the proposals is create a nuke-free zone . The other being a commitment by UN member states to halt all forms of assistance related to Israeli nuclear programme as provided for in the relevant UN resolutions.

The UAE also expressed concern over the exemption of Israel from signing the non-proliferation treaty as well as from subjecting its nuclear installations to UN inspections.

"The failure of the international community to establish a nuke-free zone in the Middle East stems from the very policy of double standards that is being practiced,” said Hend, adding that this failure has emboldened Israel to further develop its nuclear programme. Other countries also sought to revive their nuclear aspirations on the basis of security deterrence, she said.

"The international community must fulfil its obligations with respect to bringing about peace and stability in the Middle East by forcing Israel to dismantle its nukes and open up its installations for inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency,” said Hend. She pointed out that all countries must bring pressure to bear on Israeli to respect the international will and sign the non-proliferation treaty or else face imposition of sanctions, particularly economic sanctions.

UN member states, particularly nuclear powers should also cease their technical , financial, scientific and nuclear-related assistance to Israel, she said. "Such measures will restore confidence in the region and promote peace and stability. It will also help in the efforts to stop such weapons from falling into the hands of terrorist groups,” said Hend in remarks during the discussions of the General Assembly Committee on nuclear weapons.
