Israel: Nuclear Weapons

Volume 488: debated on Tuesday 24 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on what occasions since January 2008 (a) he and (b) other Ministers in his Department have discussed with their Israeli counterparts Israel's possession of nuclear weapons. (255772)

Ministers have had no discussions, since January 2008, with our Israeli counterparts regarding their possession of nuclear weapons.

We have on a number of occasions called on Israel to accede to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty as a non-nuclear weapon state and also to the Chemical Weapons Convention, and will continue to do so.
