Obama: Nuclear Iran is a threat to the Gulf2012-09-26 13:15
If Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it would be a great threat to the security of Israel and the Gulf countries. This was declared by the U.S. President Barack Obama said at the meeting of the UN General Assembly, the RIA Novosti reported.gt-en-newsitem-inside
"It will threaten to destroy Israel, to endanger the safety of the Gulf countries and the stability of the world economy. This risk of starting an arms race in the region and undermining of the NPT (Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons)", Barack Obama said from the podium of the General Assembly.
"That's why a coalition of a number of countries calls on the Iranian government to account. And thus the United States will do whatever it takes to prevent the appearance of nuclear weapons in Iran", Obama added.
In late August this year, the U.S. President Barack Obama stated the possible use of chemical weapons by Syrian authorities would become "red line", after which Washington would directly interfere in the Syrian crisis.
"A red line for us is [if] we see a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around, or being utilised. That would change my calculus", American president said. "There would be enormous consequences if we start seeing movement on the chemical weapons front or the use of chemical weapons", he added.
As noted by Barack Obama, President Assad has not yet realized that he had lost legitimacy and must leave. According to him, international community has sent a clear signal that instead of pulling his country into the civil war, he should move in the direction of political transformation. But now the prospect of soft developments seems highly unlikely, he added.
