Tehran - Iran: Israel Should Dismantle Its Nukes
Tehran - Iran on Monday rejected the idea of US defensive umbrella to protect Washington’s regional allies against a nuclear Iran.
Foreign ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi told reporters Monday that “there is no need” for a US defensive umbrella, just for Washington to tell Israel to “dismantle its own 200 nuclear warheads.”
Last week US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Iran would not be able to intimidate and dominate the region if the US “extends a defense umbrella” over the Middle East.
Israel does not acknowledge possessing nuclear weapons, but is widely believed to have at least 200 warheads.
