Lapid slams Dermer's suggestion that Israel could allow Saudi nuclear program

Opposition leader Yair Lapid slammed Strategic Affairs Minister Ron Dermer in an interview on Friday for suggesting that Israel could allow a Saudi civilian nuclear program.

Lapid on Saturday took to X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, to attack Dermer.

“Minister Dermer's statement that ‘Israel will not oppose a Saudi civilian nuclear program since there are other countries in the Middle East with a nuclear program,’ is factually incorrect and endangers Israel's security. The only country in the Middle East that enriches uranium as part of a nuclear program is Iran.,” he wrote.

“It is possible to reach an agreement that strengthens our national security without Israel signing off to uranium enrichment in the Middle East,” Lapid added.
