IRAN-ISRAEL: The UN Must Avoid Nuclear War

IRAN-ISRAEL: The UN Must Avoid Nuclear War

By SOP newswire2

 

There is only one solution to the increasingly dangerous Iran-Israel conflict and that is for the UN Security Council to pass a binding resolution for both belligerent states ISRAEL and IRAN to be declared NUCLEAR WEAPONS FREE ZONES.

With the sanction of an immediate trade embargo should any nuclear weapons within these zones not be declared and decommissioned under the authority of the IAEA, (the official inspectorate of the United Nations).

Israel must be prepared to be a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. (Iran is already a signatory). Unless the UNSC is prepared to take such action, and the US is prepared NOT to use its veto in the interests of world peace and nuclear non-proliferation, then we must be prepared for a nuclear war in the Middle East that will almost certainly escalate to become global and involve all of Europe and Asia. The Security Council must act.

The window for action is now decreasing, week by week.
