Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called on the international community to mount pressure on Israel “to promptly accede to the NPT and destroy its nuclear arsenal”.

“The international community must compel Israel—which has aggression in its very DNA—to promptly accede to the NPT and destroy its nuclear arsenal. And given its six decades of deception and clandestine development of nuclear weapons, it must be compelled to submit to the most intrusive inspection regime that law-abiding members of the NPT observe,” Zarif said in a video message this week while addressing the head of the United Nations General Assembly.
