Nuclear weapons conference could bring Iran and Israel together

Diplomatic Editor of The Guardian, Julian Borger, wrote the following article on the planned 2012 Conference on a WMD-free zone in the Middle East and what it could bring to the region. Mr. Borger quotes Paul Ingram, who said: “When you start a process like this, with clear objectives, it is amazing how it evolves. The process itself builds confidence and improves the atmosphere. Also, ordinary Israelis now recognise that a zone free of nuclear weapons is preferable to a region with two or more weapons states.”

Mr Borger was in attendance at BASIC’s Conference on Non-Proliferation in the Gulf in Qatar, 21-22 March 2012.
