Iranian DM calls for regional nuclear disarmament
Iran's Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar said on Monday that nuclear disarmament is the best option for promotion of security and sustainable peace in the region. He made the remark at a meeting with the Ministry of Defense officials in charge of foreign relations affairs, while referring to Israel's crimes in Qana.
According to IRNA, the minister said that the Zionist all-out air, marine and ground war not only targets Lebanon's Hizbullah as well as the Palestinian and Lebanese people's resistance, but it is a war against international peace and security.
He said that lack of practical unity in the world of Islam in facing the aggression against Islamic states is one of the main causes for such crimes on part of Islam's enemies. "Consensus, understanding, practical measures and common approach of the Islamic states to such bitter events will be effective in preventing them," he added.
The Iranian minister said that the heads of Zionist regime should stand trial as war criminals and be punished. "The war criminals of the Zionist regime should expect facing a destiny worse than that of Hitler and Saddam," he added.
Underlining that the resistance of Lebanese and Palestinian people against the Zionist regime and the US has made their strategic goals fail, he said, "The courageous people of Lebanon and Palestine as well as Hizbullah's resistance once more showed that reliance on any type of weapons, even nuclear, gets them nowhere in confronting the will of free and independent nations."
