Lieberman: Nuclear-Armed Iran a ‘Global Threat’

March 15, 2012  

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman on Thursday warned that a nuclear-armed Iran would “destabalize the region” and constitute a “global threat.”

Lieberman’s remarks came during a meeting with South Korean Foreign Minister Kim Sung-hwan in Seoul.

He also reportedly discussed parallels between Pyongyang and Tehran, noting Israel and South Korea both face threats from neighboring dictatorships.

Earlier this week, it was reported that North Korea may have allowed Iran to detonate a test nuclear weapon in its facilities.

During his Seoul visit, Lieberman called on the world to learn the lessons of North Korea.

“In both cases these nations conducted a sophisticated fraud designed to buy time in order to obtain weapons of mass destruction,” Lieberman said.

Many have also accused Pyongyang of ‘nuclear extortion’ in using its nuclear weapons program as a lever to obtain nutritional assistance for its deeply impoverished population.

Lieberman also said that the international community must act collectively against the new “Axis of Evil,” including Iran, North Korea and Syria.

He will next travel to Beijiing, where Iran is expected to be at the top of his agenda.
