Israel strongly denies report of South Africa nuclear talks

"The Office of the President regrets "The Guardians" decision to publish such an article without requesting comment from any Israeli officials."

"There exists no basis in reality for the claims published this morning by "The Guardian" that in 1975 Israel negotiated with South Africa the exchange of nuclear weapons. Unfortunately, "The Guardian" elected to write its piece based on the selective interpretation of South African documents and not on concrete facts," states the Office of the President of Israel in response to the report by the British daily.

"Israel has never negotiated the exchange of nuclear weapons with South Africa. There exists no Israeli document or Israeli signature on a document that such negotiations took place."

President Shimon Peres' office added, "The Office of the President regrets "The Guardians" decision to publish such an article without requesting comment from any Israeli officials. The Office of the President intends to send a harsh letter to the editor of "The Guardian" and demands the publication of the true facts.
