The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved a resolution Monday calling on Israel to quickly open its nuclear program for inspection and backing a high-level conference to ban nuclear weapons from the Middle East which was just canceled.
All the Arab nations and Iran had planned to attend the conference in mid-December in Helsinki, Finland, but the United States announced on Nov. 23 that it wouldn't take place, citing political turmoil in the region and Iran's defiant stance on nonproliferation. Iran and some Arab nations countered that the real reason for the cancellation was Israel's refusal to attend.
The resolution was approved by a vote of 176 - 4 with 6 absentees . The resolution demands Israel to join the NPT without Further delay . They demanded Israel to open up all its nuclear facilities to be inspected by IAEA. Those who voted against the resolution were : Israel, USA, Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau .
Israel neither Accepts nor denies that it has >200 Nuclear Bombs . It has repeatedly denied to join the NPT . On the other hand , it speaks infront of UN general Assembly using cartoon Bombs to tell the world that Iran , a member of NPT , is developing Nuclear Bombs and is the greatest threat to ME.
