Syrian General Director of Atomic Energy: Israel’s nuclear capabilities threatening region
The general director of atomic energy in Syria, Ibrahim Othman asserted that the unprecedented dangerous escalation in the Middle East confirms the expansionist and aggressive orientations of the Israeli policy against the Palestinians in the occupied territories, the Syrian Arab News Agency reported Wednesday.
In his speech Tuesday before the 46th conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which is currently being held in Vienna, Othman stressed Syria’s position, which “calls for the realization of a just and comprehensive peace based on the withdrawal of the Israeli forces from all the occupied Arab territories”.
Othman further cautioned against the international community’s ignorance regarding Israeli nuclear capabilities, which threaten the region, adding that this ignorance has encouraged Israel to threaten its Arab neighbors with utilizing nuclear arms. (Albawaba.com)
