Iran Renews Call for Nuke-Free World

Addressing the UN Disarmament Commission on Wednesday, Khazaei said that indiscriminate implementation of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is the only way to free the world from nuclear weapons.

“The only way forward to eliminate threats posed by nuclear weapons is to completely destroy them. Iran believes that the best way for ensuring nuclear non-proliferation is to fully implement the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty without bias, particularly in the sensitive Middle East region,” Press TV quoted him as saying.

He said nuclear disarmament is among the top priorities of the comity of nations and resolutions approved by the UN General Assembly.

The envoy condemned certain countries for possessing nuclear weapons and “for not upholding their legal commitments for destroying the banned weapons.”

He said establishing sustainable world security will be possible only through logical approaches and avoiding the use of force.

Khazaei also accused Israel of threatening the regional and international peace and security as a recognized wielder of nuclear warheads.

“Due to the Zionist regime of [Israel's] refusal to join the NPT and its formidable sites not being subject to the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), efforts to create a region free of nuclear weapons had not been successful,” Khazaei stated.

"The Middle East is a region where the nuclear program of one regime that is not a member of NPT -- Israel -- seriously threatens regional and international peace and security," he added.

The Iranian official emphasized the Islamic Republic still insists on its proposal that the Middle East should be declared a region free of nuclear weapons.

He also underlined Iran's determination to make use of its rights for peaceful nuclear activities and rejected US-led allegations that the country's nuclear program may pursue purposes other than civilian objectives.

“Such baseless claims are often made by countries that have a historic precedence in non-adherence to their commitments to nuclear disarmament. Some countries try to block access of other countries to peaceful nuclear technology under a variety of pretexts. The NPT clearly acknowledges the rights of all members to peaceful nuclear programs,” Khazaei said.
