Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman stated that Israel hails US Near East initiative on achievement of peace. Reconciliation in to years concerns not only Israel, but conflicts with Syria and Lebanon, Israeli daily Jerusalem Post reports.

Addressing a meeting of Knesset commission on foreign policy and security, Liberman said the international community's negative attitude towards Israel's actions remains to be major problem for Tel-Aviv.

Liberman said that Tehran is attentively observing the U.S. and European Union attitude towards South Korea's nuclear program. He was commenting on Iranian nuclear problem.

"If the world super powers are unable to stop nuclear program of the poorest and isolated nation of the world, then Iran is out of the question in this respect," the minister clarified.

He said Iran's achievement of attaching nuclear potential will inevitably lead to nuclear arms race in the Near East, because the regional leaders like Saudi Arabia and Egypt will never tolerate their insecurity before Tehran.
