Israeli ambassadors and consuls in North America are due to head to Washington Wednesday for a conference on the Iranian nuclear issue. The day-long conference, arranged by Foreign Ministry Director-General Aharon Abramovich, will focus on US, UN and Canadian efforts to stop the controversial program. The conference will be attended by Israeli Ambassador to the US Sallai Meridor, Ambassador to the UN Danny Gillerman, Ambassador to Canada Alan Baker, the Foreign Ministry's deputy director-general for political affairs Yossi Gal and nine consulate generals from Toronto and from across the US. The envoys and consuls will give assessments on their activities concerning the Iranian nuclear threat and will hold consultations regarding their future efforts in stopping Iran's nuclear activity. During the last two years, the Foreign Ministry, US congressman and governors have taken several diplomatic steps in their efforts to stave off the Iranian threat. California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recently announced that he was cutting his state's commercial ties with Iran. In September, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved a far-reaching law banning the US from making nuclear deals with countries that cooperate with Iran, aiming to prevent any breaches to the UN sanctions.
