Israel’s PM calls for ‘force’ if Iran acquires nuclear weapons


Published on: 09/23/2022 – 07:42 Yaïr Lapid, the Israeli Prime Minister, tried on Thursday to convince the international community gathered at the UN to use “force” in the event of the acquisition of the weapon nuclear by Iran. The Jewish state has been trying for months to prevent the renewal of the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program of 2015. Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid on Thursday (September 22nd) urged the international community gathered for the General Assembly of the UN to use “force” if Iran develops nuclear weapons. He reiterated his support for the creation of a “peaceful” Palestinian state. Israel has been carrying out an intense diplomatic offensive in recent months to try to convince the United States and the main European powers (United Kingdom, France, Germany) not to not renew the 2015 Iran Nuclear Program Agreement (JCPOA) from which the Trump administration had withdrawn. For the past ten days, various officials have suggested that the agreement may not be renewed until at least mid-November, a deadline that the Israeli Prime Minister is trying to use to push Westerners to impose a tougher approach in their negotiations.”The only way to prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons is to put a credible military threat on the table. And then, and only then, will it be possible to negotiate a longer and more solid agreement with them,” Yair Lapid said from the rostrum of the General Assembly. “It must be clear to Iran that if it goes ahead with its nuclear program, the world will not react with words, but will use force”, added Yaïr Lapid. Number one enemyIsrael, which considers Iran as its number one enemy, also accuses Tehran of financing the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas, two armed movements based on the borders of the Jewish state. Despite the “obstacles”, an “agreement with the Palestinians, based on two states for two peoples, is the right thing to do to ensure the security and the economy of Israel, and to offer a future to our children”, added Yaïr Lapid, in full campaign for the legislative elections of the 1st November.” Even today, a large majority of Israelis support this vision of a two-state solution and I am one of them. We have only one condition: that a future Palestinian state be peaceful,” added Yair Lapid, whose speech at the UN, which had leaked to Israel, was already criticized by his political opponents. Joe Biden, welcomed Yair Lapid’s support for the two-state solution, calling it a “courageous” decision.

Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations have stalled since 2014. And the strategy Lapid’s current government is trying to support the Palestinian economy without embarking on a new peace process with 87-year-old Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, who is due to speak in the General Assembly on Friday. .With AFP
