ORAL QUESTION for Question Time at the part-session in September I 2008 pursuant to Rule 109 of the Rules of Procedure by Athanasios Pafilis to the Council

 Subject: Threats of attack on Iran
 Answer 

Recently Israel has been adopting an increasingly bellicose stance towards Iran in response to its nuclear programme, stepping up its threats to launch a military offensive. This has been made abundantly clear in recent statements issued by the Defence Minister Ehud Barak that Israel is prepared to move against Iran, pointing out that Israel has in the past repeatedly demonstrated its willingness to take unhesitating action. From 28 May to 12 June 2008 the threats were backed up by the ‘Glorious Spartan’ air force manoeuvres on Greek territory organised jointly by Greece and Israel simulating a hypothetical Israeli attack on a nuclear plant in Iran. These developments confirm that aggressive imperialist tactics by Israel pose a constant threat to peace in the area and to the peoples affected.

Does the Council condemn these threats of aggression and the organisation of training exercises in preparation for an Israeli military offensive on Iran, which would have incalculable consequences for the peoples concerned and for peace in that region and throughout the world?
