The Israeli foreign minister on Wednesday warned that Iranian leaders pose the biggest threat to international values as they “speak proudly” of their wish to destroy Israel and pursue weapons to achieve that objective.

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni told the U.N. General Assembly that the international community must stand up against Iran, which she claimed is pursuing the weapons to destroy Israel and threaten the entire world.

“There is no greater challenge to our values than that posed by the leaders of Iran,” Livni said. “They deny and mock the Holocaust. They speak proudly and openly of their desire to wipe Israel off the map.”
