Israel is under pressure from the UN to open up to the world the nuclear arsenal it denies even exists. In an overwhelming vote, the General Assembly approved a resolution urging the country to allow inspections of its atomic facilities.
The United Nations General Assembly is pressing Israel to reveal its nuclear arsenal. Israel has lashed out against the overwhelming approval of the resolution, which calls for international inspectors to be allowed to examine its atomic programme. Its foreign minister said the vote was meaningless. The country also rejected a UN-backed conference on a nuke-free Middle East. Israel denies it has nuclear weapons - but refuses to provide proof that it doesn't. RT's Paula Slier tried to lift the veil surrounding Israel's atomic programme.
