Israel crossed nuclear red line long ago - Iran's Vahidi

Iran’s Defense Minister, Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi, says Israel crossed the red line with regard to its nuclear program long ago by possessing dozens of nuclear weapons, Press TV reports.

“If having a nuclear bomb is crossing the red line, the Zionist regime [of Israel], which has dozens of nuclear warheads and various kinds of weapons of mass destruction, crossed the red line years ago and should be dealt with,” Vahidi said on Saturday.

“Is an occupier and aggressive regime like the Zionist regime [of Israel] which possesses nuclear weapons and threatens to launch military attacks more dangerous, or Iran which has no nuclear weapons, and stresses the need for nuclear disarmament?”

“If American and other Western authorities truly seek to avert threats against the region and the world, they must mount pressure on the dangerous regime of Israel through cutting ties with the regime and imposing sanctions on it until all its weapons of mass destruction are destroyed,” Vahidi added.
