Israel Rebuffs Russia

TEL AVIV, Israel -- Israeli Defense Minister Yitzhak Mordechai dismissed on Tuesday Russian claims that it stopped supplying Iran with technology to produce nonconventional arms and long-range missiles.

"There is no doubt that Russia is supporting Iran now to produce nonconventional weapons and ballistic missiles," Mordechai told U.S. rabbis in Tel Aviv.

"It is necessary to cooperate with all Western countries so countries like Iran will not continue with their projects that will lead to a change for the whole world," Mordechai said.
