Israel scored a diplomatic victory on Friday after a group of Arab nations withdrew a resolution they had considered submitted at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) aimed at condemning Israel’s nuclear activities.

Israel and the United States had spent the past few months working behind the scenes to torpedo the submission of the resolution called “Israel’s nuclear capabilities”. Last year, it was brought to a vote and lost, possibly one of the reasons why the Arab nations ultimately decided not to raise the resolution this year.

During the vote on Friday, Israel voted against a resolution calling on all states in the Middle East to sign the Non Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which Israel is not a signatory to despite having a nuclear capability, according to foreign reports.
