Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd on Tuesday called on Israel to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, reported Army Radio.

Rudd said he recognizes Israel's security situation, but thinks all countries need to be signatories to the treaty, Rudd said at a news conference in Egypt before meeting with his counterpart, Avigdor Lieberman in Israel.

In response to Rudd's comments, Lieberman said that what matters is not whether countries have joined the treaty, but rather whether they have a responsible government. He noted that Iran is also signed on the treaty but it "cheats every day."
