Mikdad: Time has come for international efforts to eliminate the Israeli arsenal of WMD
Damascus, SANA-Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister Fayssal Mikdad said the only danger which poses a threat to the region is the Zionist entity, affirming that there is no justification to have doubt about this, except the Israeli acts, its allies in Europe and its tools in the region which circulate that there are other dangers.
“After reaching a framework deal between Iran and p5+1 in Switzerland on the Iranian nuclear file which guarantees Tehran’s rights in using nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, it is natural to welcome such a deal because it will lead to easing tensions in the region,” Mikdad said in an article published on Lebanese al-Binaa newspaper on Saturday.
He added that all have become confirmed that the only side responsible for violating the principles of nuclear non-proliferation is Israel and the western countries which offered their capabilities to build Israel’s arsenal of chemical and nuclear weapon.
Mikdad went on to say that the cooperation showed by Syria and Iran in meeting the international community’s interests whether in relation to eliminating chemical weapons in Syria or to Iran’s coordination in the nuclear file confirms, once again, the true intentions of both countries which consider the use of such weapons an immoral matter that contradicts their religious values.
“Time has come for the international efforts to eliminate the Israeli arsenal of weapons of mass destruction,” Mikdad said, adding that what encourages Israel to boost its weapon programs is the stance of some Arab regimes who connive with this entity.
