It is against Israel’s interests to join a global anti-nuclear arms treaty and the UN atomic watchdog is overstepping its mandate in demanding it to do so, its nuclear chief said on Tuesday.
Arab states have tabled a resolution at the International Atomic Energy Agency annual conference in Vienna for Israel to fore swear nuclear weapons and sign up to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
“Israel is not the only member state … that has exercised its sovereign right not to accede to the NPT due to its national security considerations,” Israel’s Atomic Energy Commission chief Shaul Chorev said.
“Yet Israel is the only state that has been singled out, and is called upon to take a decision which is against its best national interests,” he told the conference.
“Indeed, the advancement of states’ accessions to international treaties does not fall within the mandate of the (IAEA),” he said.
