Saudi Arabia: Iran must stop sowing tension in the region

Ambassador Abdullah bin Yahya Al-Mouallimi, the Permanent Representative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to the UN, called on Iran to cease fostering tension in the area, expressing his country’s worry about the Iranian authorities’ conflicting actions.
He emphasized that his country and the countries in the region have been working for more than 40 years to make the Middle East a region free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction and that this is their starting point in supporting international efforts to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon.
In a speech given during the Second Middle East Conference on the Establishment of a Zone Free of Nuclear Weapons and Other Weapons of Mass Destruction, Saudi Arabia emphasized the need of establishing a zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.
It was held under the chairmanship of the Permanent Delegation of the State of Kuwait to the UN on Monday, and he expressed the Kingdom’s deep concern about Tehran’s behavior, which contradicts what it says about its nuclear activities being peaceful, and called on it to engage in serious nuclear negotiations.
He also stated that Saudi Arabia was and continues to be in the vanguard of nations supporting the construction of nuclear-weapon-free zones across the world, particularly in the Middle East, which is riven by conflict and instability.
In addition, he added that establishing nuclear-weapon-free zones, especially in the Middle East, is one of the most important steps toward achieving the UN Charter’s goals and objectives.
In view of Israel’s persistent reluctance to sign the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, he highlighted that the inability to attain universality of the Treaty represented a barrier that cannot be neglected.
Saudi Arabia’s Permanent Representative to the UN also emphasized that creating a Middle East region free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction is no longer a choice, but rather a necessity, because achieving security, stability, and comprehensive coexistence in our region will be impossible without the elimination of all weapons of mass destruction.
