U.S. urges Arab states to drop Israel nuclear treaty demand

Gag me with a chainsaw! U.S. urges Arab states to drop Israel nuclear treaty demand 13 Sep 2010 The U.S. envoy to the UN atomic watchdog urged Arab states on Monday to withdraw a resolution calling on Israel to sign an anti-nuclear arms treaty, warning it would send a negative signal to Middle East peace talks. Arab countries, backed by Iran, are seeking to build on a victory at an assembly meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency last year when they narrowly won support for a non-binding resolution calling on Israel to join the Non-Proliferation treaty.
