Iranian Government Set to Review Nuclear Policy Amid Rising Tensions with Israel

A high-ranking official from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced that Iran is contemplating a revision of its nuclear doctrine in light of recent threats from Israel.

This statement was made public by Ahmad Haghtalab, a Revolutionary Guards commander responsible for nuclear security, during an interview with the semi-official Tasnim news agency.

The tension between the two countries escalated following an attack on April 13, where Iran targeted Israel with missiles and drones. This attack, according to Tehran, was a retaliation for an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Iranian embassy compound in Damascus on April 1, which reportedly resulted in the death of seven officers from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force.

Israel has been clear about its stance, warning of retaliation against Iran’s nuclear sites, prompting Tehran to reconsider its previously stated peaceful nuclear ambitions. The international community, including the G7 nations, has voiced strong opposition to Iran’s actions, underlining their commitment to Israel’s security. The G7, an important global economic forum, includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the European Union.

Amidst these rising tensions, the Nigerian government has called for calm and urged both nations to pursue peaceful resolutions. A statement from Mrs. Francisca Omayuli, a spokesperson for the Nigerian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, emphasized the global commitment to the peaceful resolution of conflicts and the promotion of worldwide peace and security.
