The International Association of Democratic Lawyers is deeply concerned about the threats against Iran by Israel , the United States, and the United Kingdom.

Since its founding in 1946, and again in its conference of Paris in 2010, IADL has always supported the total elimination of nuclear weapons.

Regarding that the most recent report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), IADL expresses concerns about possible military extension of Iranian nuclear reasearch, but as there is no proof that production of weapons is imminent , IADL expresses that:

(1) The threats by Israel, the United States, and the United Kingdom are unacceptable, and are dangerous not only for all the region but for the whole of humanity.
(2) Article 2.4 of UN Charter forbids not only use of force but also the threat of force in international relations, and that the right of defense settled by the Charter does not include preemptive strikes.
(3) While Israel, is quick to denounce the possible possession of nuclear weapons by others, it illegally has had nuclear weapons for many years ; and
(4) The danger to world peace caused by nuclear weapons is so great as to require that global eradication of all nuclear weapons, and to immediately declare the Middle East, a nuclear free zone and a zone free of all weapons of mass destruction, as required by UN Security Council resolution 687.
