The UN General Assembly’s First Committee has endorsed an Iran-sponsored resolution on nuclear disarmament despite attempts by the US and the Israeli regime to stop the bid.

The committee, which focuses on disarmament and international security issues, approved the resolution with 107 votes on October 31, despite strong opposition and negative campaigning by the US, the Tel Aviv regime as well as some European governments, IRNA reported.

The resolution calls for the implementation of pledges made at the three most recent Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty review conferences.

It also reiterates the urgency for a nuclear-free Middle East and demands that the Israeli regime must sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).

Israel, widely believed to be the sole possessor of a nuclear arsenal in the Middle East with over 200 undeclared nuclear warheads, pursues the policy of “deliberate ambiguity” for its nuclear program.

Tel Aviv has so far rejected all global demands to join the NPT and does not allow the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors to inspect and monitor its controversial nuclear program.

The Israeli regime has never denied or confirmed the existence of its nuclear arsenal as part of its long-held ‘nuclear ambiguity’ policy. Despite international objections to such dubious policy, the UN and its nuclear regulatory agencies have never taken serious steps to censure or impose sanctions on the defiant regime.

Tehran has also proposed a draft resolution on missiles, which is to be discussed in the committee’s next session.

    How could any nation accept ANY offer or proposal from an Islamic state? Considering that deceit and lying are a ‘virtue’ in Islam and their intent is subjugation of the entire planet… If Israel and the FREE nuclear nations don’t tell Iran to ‘pound sand’ they are blind fools. There are two houses in Islam…One is WAR, the other is preparing for more more WAR. PEACE define in Islamic terms is Total Subjugation Of the World… There is No Peace in Islam until they have accomplished this goal.

    You schmuck. Your idea is peace through warfare! Same as the US. Iran has not attacked a nation in over 300 years. US has been bombing wildly since it learnt how. Forget you partisan ideology and think about what you say.

    Israel is the rogue nation that thinks it’s above international law and unlike Iran, refuses to sign up to the NPT and who won’t allow UN weapons inspectors into the country and then there’s Mossad who goes around assasinating whoever it pleases. Such an unruly & indocile nation. The hypocrisy of western leaders who defend Israel and then condemn Iran is borderline insanity. But then what do you expect from pathological liars.
