Castro Warns of “War with global Consequences” if Iran Attacked

Former Cuban President Fidel Castro warned against an Israeli attack on Iran, saying it would lead to a “bloody war with incalculable global consequences”.
In a commentary titled “Genocidal Cynicism” and published in Cuban state-run newspapers, Castro wrote that, given the Islamic Republic’s capability, population, and size, any such act of aggression would be ensued by graver repercussions than Tel Aviv’s past attacks against Iraq and Syria, AFP reported on Monday.
Castro warned that the latest report by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Iran’s nuclear program would “bring the world to the edge of a nuclear war.”
Last week the UN atomic watchdog released a report claiming through that the Islamic Republic has been developing nuclear weapons. Iran firmly denied these accusations, saying the report was baseless and didn’t present any new thing.
Iran confirms its program is for peaceful ends only insisting that is its right under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) while Israel, which is believed to be the sole nuclear power in the Middle East with more than 200 nuclear heads, is not a signatory for this treaty.
