Israel says Arab governments stalling vision of nuclear-free Middle East

Israel on Friday accused its Arab neighbors of delaying talks aimed at making the Middle East a region free of nuclear weapons.

In an official statement issued by the Israeli delegation currently observing the Review Conference of Non-Proliferation Treaty in New York, Jerusalem expressed disappointment over what it says is its neighbor’s hesitancy in engaging in direct negotiations.

"If a serious regional effort has not emerged in the Middle East during the last five years, it is not because of Israel," read the statement.
