If the international community allows Iran to achieve nuclear status, it will immediately trigger a proliferation race in the Middle East, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday.

Speaking in an interview with the Washinton Post, Barak said "A nuclear Iran will be the end of the nonproliferation regime: Saudi Arabia will turn nuclear immediately, Turkey within several years, and probably the new Egypt will start moving to do it. Not to mention the potential of weapons-grade material leaking into the hands of terrorist groups from Iran."
