Isn’t it strange for an international Conference on Disarmament to invite warmongers refusing to rein in their vampire-like appetite for human blood and destruction of the heritage of humanity?
Of course it is. Thanks to the strong objections of the Islamic Republic of Iran two of the most rapacious runt-size regimes of our neighbourhood, which slavishly serve the interests of the Great Satan (the US) and the little devil (Israel), have been barred from attending the UN-sponsored Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.
Over the past six years the culturally-rich land of Yemen has been turned into a desolate place where the infrastructure has been destroyed and people are facing famine and pandemic because of the state terrorism of the Saudi Wahhabi cult of Riyadh and the Aal-e Nahyan clan of Abu Dhabi.
Yet, despite their ongoing war crimes, Saudi Arabia and the UAE were all set to participate in the said conference in Switzerland as observers, until Tehran’s timely objection closed the door upon them.
Their presence in the conference on disarmament would have made a mockery of the whole proceedings.
According to Iran’s permanent ambassador to the UN office in Geneva, Ismaeil Baqaei Hamaneh, the Islamic Republic had acted to block Riyadh and Abu Dhabi from joining the conference due to its concerns about the forum’s status as the only multilateral international institution in the nuclear disarmament sphere.
He rightly remarked: "As experience shows, Saudi Arabia only abuses the meetings and discussions at the Conference on Disarmament to distract public opinion and pin the blame on others for its own mistakes and crimes in Yemen.”
So far over a hundred-and-twenty thousand men, women, and children have been slaughtered by the joint invasion of Yemen by the regimes in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi which continue to receive large quantities of state-of-the-art military hardware from the US, Britain, France, and Israel, to devastate the impoverished county’s infrastructure and fuel regional insecurity and instability.
Moreover, in sharp contrast to Iran’s peaceful nuclear project that is fully monitored by inspectors from the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), British-created Saudi Arabia, similar to the illegal Zionist entity (also a British creation), has an undeclared weapons-grade nuclear programme.
The site near Riyadh, though not as advanced as Israel’s, has been identified by satellite images as well as intelligence experts, who claim the Saudis are processing uranium and moving toward the development of atomic bombs.
The Saudis, who lack indigenous expertise, have hired nuclear scientists from other countries to carry out this undeclared project, and continue to defy calls to implement the IAEA’s Comprehensive Safeguards Agreements – a system of inspection and verification of the peaceful uses of nuclear materials.
The UAE also has a nuclear project of its own, which is also highly secretive. Both these regimes are protégés of the world’s most dangerously nuclear-armed country, the US, and therefore, similar to the case of Israel, they face no pressures or hurdles in carrying out their dangerous activities.
It is rather unfortunate that Iran, which in accordance with the teachings of Islam, has ruled out the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, including atomic bombs, faces all sorts of pressures and threats from Global Arrogance, whose diabolical policies are the main hurdles in the way of disarmament and peace in the modern world.
