VIENNA — The head of the UN’s International Atomic Energy Agency is
asking for international input on an Arab-led push to have Israel join
the Nonproliferation Treaty, in a move that adds to pressure on Jerusalem to disclose its unacknowledged nuclear arsenal.
Israel, in turn, is suggesting the push is misdirected and the IAEA
should focus instead on giving teeth to the nuclear treaty to prevent
signatories like Iran from acquiring such weapons.RELATED:UNSC powers back nuke-free MEIsrael's response follows publication of a letter Wednesday from IAEA
chief Yukiya Amano. Amano asked foreign ministers of the IAEA's 151
member states to share views on how to implement a resolution demanding
that Israel "accede to the" Nonproliferation Treaty and throw its
nuclear facilities open to IAEA oversight.

signatories – like Iraq – have tried in the past to gain nuclear
Iran, also a treaty member, is "now doing the same," said the official,
who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Israel has never acknowledged or denied having nuclear weapons but is
widely believed to possess them.
to an active role on nuclear-free Middle East
Egypt has proposed that a Nonproliferation Treaty conference now meeting
at UN headquarters in New York back a plan calling for the start of
negotiations next year on a Mideast free of nuclear arms. The proposal
may become a major debating point in the monthlong session.
The US has cautiously supported the idea while saying that implementing
it must wait for progress in the Middle East peace process. Israel also
says a comprehensive Middle East peace settlement must come first.
