Arab League Secretary General Nabil Elaraby has called on the international community to pressure the Israeli regime into declaring its nuclear weapons.

"It's time for the international community... to stop its policy of double standards and to undertake its responsibilities by pressuring Israel to join the non-proliferation agreement (NPT)," Elaraby said in a statement released on Wednesday.

All of Israel’s nuclear facilities must be placed under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), he added.

Israel is widely believed to be the sole possessor of a nuclear arsenal in the Middle East and has so far blatantly violated the international rules regarding nuclear non-proliferation.

In December 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution urging the Tel Aviv regime to join the NPT and put its nuclear facilities under the safeguards of the IAEA.

The Tel Aviv regime reportedly maintains between 200 and 400 atomic warheads.
