Israel continues to maintain its long-standing policy of nuclear opacity. It neither officially confirms nor denies that it possesses nuclear weapons.1 Like India and Pakistan, Israel has never been a party to the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (Non-Proliferation Treaty, NPT).2 In recent years Israel has come under mounting international diplomatic pressure to renounce its widely suspected nuclear weapon arsenal, accede to the NPT as a non-nuclear weapon state and place all of its nuclear facilities under International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) comprehensive safeguards.3
