Israel to Egypt: No More Watching Nuclear Facility

ARABIAN DEFENSE -- Israel has asked Egypt to stop its efforts to advance a resolution to subject Israel’s nuclear facilities to international inspection, a motion expected to come up for a vote at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s General Conference in two weeks, senior officials in Jerusalem said.

The Israeli message to Egypt was conveyed during a visit to Cairo three weeks ago by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s special envoy, Isaac Molho, and National Security Adviser Yossi Cohen, the officials said. Molho and Cohen met with Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry and other Egyptian government officials to discuss the matter. Shoukry and his ministry are leading the anti-Israel move in the IAEA as part of a long-time Egyptian policy to lobby internationally against Israel’s nuclear program.
