US Rejects Nuclear Disarmament Document Over Israel Concerns

Monday, May 25, 2015 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News)-- The United States on Friday blocked a global document aimed at ridding the world of nuclear weapons, saying Egypt and other states tried to "cynically manipulate" the process by setting a deadline for Israel and its neighbors to meet within months on a Middle East zone free of such weapons, the Associated Press reported.

The now-failed final document of a landmark treaty review conference had called on the U.N. secretary-general to convene the Middle East conference no later than March 2016, regardless of whether Israel and its neighbors agree on an agenda.

Israel is not a party to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has never publicly declared what is widely considered to be an extensive nuclear weapons program. A conference might force Israel to acknowledge it. --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://news.yahoo.com/us-rejects-nuclear-disarmament-document-over-israel-concerns-235333683.html" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
