Peres: Iran also has a human bomb

During press conference in Germany, vice premier slams world's tolerance toward Tehran, fails to express enthusiasm over ideas raised regarding new peace initiative

Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Wednesday morning during a press conference in Berlin that "Iran constitutes a danger due to two bombs, one nuclear and the other human – Ahmadinejad."


According to Peres, Iran's strength is a consequence of the international weakness.


"If the countries of the international community countries would have acted, we could have cancelled the Iranian danger. The great fear is that the Iranian nuclear capabilities would be used for terror. All world leaders should unite in order to stop Iran," he said.


Referring to the proposal that France will enrich the Iranian uranium, the vice premier said: "This is a cover up, this is not a solution."


"The Security Council set a deadline for an answer from the Iranians. The Iranians failed to meet it, but the negotiations continue. If you don’t say what you want, it's okay, but if you say what you want and it is not met, this weakens your power," Peres added.


The Israeli minister refrained from answering the German reporters' questions on the Israeli nukes and on the international call to demilitarize the entire Middle East of mass destruction weapons.


"We are letting others say what they think we have," he said without elaborating.


'We already have Road Map'  

Referring to the Lebanese issue and the involvement of the German navy in attempts to smuggle weapons through the sea, Peres told reporters: "The German ships can help in thwarting smuggling. Whoever wants to smuggle weapons is free to do so, but whoever wants to prevent it finds it much more difficult – and for that we thank Germany."


Addressing the Palestinian issue, Peres told reporters that he rejects the international call for the establishment of a convention which will find solutions for the conflict.


"There is already one international plan called the Road Map. There is no need for other frameworks. The question is not what which framework will bring about the solution, but rather what the final product is," he said.
