Japan warns Israel against attacking Iran

submit to reddit

Israel's Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak (L) meets with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda at the latter's official residence in Tokyo on February 15, 2012.

Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda has warned Israel against the ramifications of launching a military strike on Iran over Tehran’s nuclear program.

Noda told visiting Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak in a meeting an attack on Iran would be ”extremely dangerous” and would ”escalate” the crisis in the region.

Earlier this month, Barak claimed that if the Western sanctions against Iran fail to stop its nuclear program, military action against the country must be placed on its agenda.

The United States, Israel and their European allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program and have used this pretext to push for international and unilateral sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

Washington and Tel Aviv have also repeatedly threatened Iran with a military option in a bid to force the Islamic Republic to halt its peaceful nuclear program, which has been closely monitored by inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Iran has rejected the Western publicity that its nuclear program may be diverted to military objectives while insisting that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, it is entitled to pursue nuclear technology for its numerous civilian uses and benefits.

Such war threats and rhetoric have been slammed by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei as well as other senior officials and armed forces commanders, who have persistently rejected the US-Israeli psywar campaign against Iran and declared the country’s total readiness in deterring and confronting any attacks on its assets and interests.

      vee, you sound like a radical Muslim, so in my opinion you are not American, you are the enemy of the state of the USA. People like you should be monitored by the FBI and sent back to your stone age country where you came from. If you are a born American, I still think you are a radical Muslim so you are again an internal enemy.

    The Iranians are one of the few Mid-east peoples that actually want liberation from their Islamic Dictators, and the world is against them.

    Yoshihiko Noda told visiting Israeli Ehud Barak an attack on Iran would be ”extremely dangerous” and would ”escalate” the crisis in the region. Its a common sense warning with a legitimate purpose so that nobody has to die in a stupid war. Japan ain’t gonna start it, China ain’t gonna start it, Russia ain’t gonna start it. Would you?
