Prince Turki Al-Faisal, Chairman of King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies, is warning if the Middle East does not become a nuclear weapon-free zone, a nuclear arms race is inevitable and could possibly include Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and even Turkey.

 

The Prince said in an interview Wednesday that the zone is a better way of dealing with Iran’s nuclear enrichment program.


He said the five permanent UN Security Council members should guarantee a nuclear security umbrella for Mideast countries that join a nuclear-free zone and impose military sanctions against countries seen to be developing such weapons.

That could put Israel under sanctions if it doesn’t come clean on its suspected arsenal.
