Arab FMs demands Israeli nuclear facilities be inspected
font size    

Arab foreign ministers, gathering here Saturday to prepare for an upcoming Arab summit, demanded that Israeli nuclear facilities should be inspected.

Sudanese Foreign Minister Lam Akol made the remarks, while addressing the opening session of the ministerial meeting after assuming the chairmanship of the Ministerial Council.

He told the session that the Jewish state should sign the international treaties banning nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.

"The international society should exert pressures on Israel for this purpose," Lam Akol said.

"We must make the Middle East to be a region free of nuclear weapons, and we call on the international society to refrain from observing double standard in treating the issue of nuclear weapons and all other weapons of mass destruction," urged the Sudanese official.

Announcing his council's condemnation for all forms of terrorism, Lam Akol underlined that the terrorism had constituted a dangerous threat for the security and stability of the region and had caused damage to the economic and social development as well as civilians' life.

"Besides our condemnation for the terrorism, we must affirm the necessity to distinguish the terrorism from the legal right of resisting the occupation," he added.

The Sudanese official, meanwhile, reiterated his government's commitment to find a comprehensive and just settlement to the crisis in the country's western Darfur region.

Praising other Arab states for their support of Sudan's position rejecting the deployment of international forces in Darfur, Lam Akol suggested that Arab forces could be sent to Darfur in order to thwart any attempt of deploying international forces in the restive area.

He called on Arab countries to provide necessary material assistance for the 7800-strong African forces monitoring the implementation of a 2004 ceasefire accord in Darfur.
