The Arab League chief on Monday said US charges that Iran wants to build nuclear weapons had no credibility in the Arab world and demanded that the allegation be supported by proof from the UN nuclear watchdog. Amr Mousa further declared that Arabs want the whole region to be free of nuclear weapons, including the arsenal Israel is believed to possess. "The Middle East does not need a military nuclear program, be it Iranian, Israeli or other," Moussa told a news conference at the World Economic Forum meeting on the Middle East. "Our goal and interest is to have a Middle East free of nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction."
