Israel: Iran targeting more then Israel

Sept. 22, 2004 at 3:49 PM   |   Comments

UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Israeli Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom in New York Wednesday warned Iran possessed missiles that could blanket Europe.

"For many years the world believed that this threat from Iran could be launched only toward Israel," Shalom told reporters after meeting U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. "The Iranians are developing missiles with a range that will include Paris, London, Berlin and the southern part of Russia."

Shalom's comments came four days after the International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N.'s nuclear watchdog, adopted a resolution calling on Iran

to halt all activities related to uranium enrichment.

The Israeli government has asked the IAEA to bring the non-compliance of Iran before the U.N. Security Council and to impose sanctions if Iran continues to keep its activities secret.

Shalom also said the redeployment of 3,000 Syrian soldiers from Lebanon was only cosmetic.

"We believe that the time has come to end the occupation of Lebanon," he said. "Lebanon should be free."
