Kuwait Calls On IAEA To Safeguard Israeli Occupation Nuclear Facilities

(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) VIENNA, June 7 (KUNA) -- Kuwait called on Friday on the International Atomic energy Agency (IAEA) to take the necessary steps to urge Israel to immediately join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and subject all its nuclear facilities to the comprehensive safeguards system of the IAEA.
This was stated in a speech delivered by the Third Secretary of Kuwait Permanent Delegation to the United Nations in Vienna, Dr. Sara Al-Ajmi, during the discussions regarding the Israel's nuclear capabilities.
Dr. Sara Al-Ajmi, urged in her speech the IAEA to keep the Israeli occupation's nuclear capabilities under discussion in the policy-making meetings of the agency so that it can effectively and competently fulfill its role in verifying and applying the comprehensive safeguards system.
Dr. Al-Ajmi added that despite the commitment of all Middle Eastern countries to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and the implementation of the comprehensive safeguards agreement, the Israeli occupation continues its obstinacy, refusing to subject all its nuclear facilities to the system of the IAEA.
She also pointed out that Israel continues to reject any initiatives or serious steps in this regard, preventing the agency from applying the system in the Middle East and creating a zone free of nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction.
Kuwait's delegation also addressed the situation in Gaza, stating that while the Board of Governors is holding its meetings this week, Palestine was witnessing a dangerous escalation and developments in events.
Dr. Al-Ajmi mentioned in her speech that nearly eight months have passed since the Israeli occupation forces launched brutal attacks on Palestine, disregarding international laws, covenants, and resolutions, resulting in the deaths of tens of thousands of unarmed civilians, most of whom are women and children.
In her speech, she confirmed Kuwait's principled and firm stance in condemning the unfortunate massacres committed by the Israeli occupation forces against Palestinian camps.
Kuwait once again called on the international community to exert strong pressure to stop this blatant aggression, which violates all international laws and norms, to protect Palestinian, thus, serious efforts must be made to hold the perpetrators of these heinous crimes accountable.
Dr. Al-Ajmi emphasized that the deliberate targeting of refugee tents and the killing of innocents was clear evidence that the Israeli occupation hardly understands the language of peace. (end)
