MaximsNewsNetwork: 23 October 2009 - UNTV - United Nations: Israel's Minister of Regional Cooperation and Development Silvan Shalom says that the Goldstone Report should stay in Geneva and not go to the Security Council because the report is, "so unfair and so biased that it should remain there in the hands of Iran, Cuba and Saudi Arabia."
Israels Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom met with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today at the United Nations following meetings this week at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) between Iran and world powers to curb Iran's ability to build a nuclear weapon. Shalom told reporters he discussed Irans nuclear issues and arms deals with Hamas and Hezbollah with the Secretary-General.
He said that it was very well known that the Iranians continued to send shipments of weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon in violation of Security Council resolution 1701 and that Iran was trying to cover their real intentions. On humanitarian aid to Gaza being blocked by the Israelis, Shalom said that all products were going in on a daily basis and that Hamas was distributing those products among its own people and selling it in the black market.
Commenting on the Goldstone report, Shalom said it should stay at the Human Rights Council in Geneva and that it didnt need to come to the Security Council. Its not the way to deal with that issue, he said, that issue is so unfair, so biased that it should remain there in the hands of Iran, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia.
