The Israeli foreign minister has said that Israel does not intend to bomb Iran.

Avigdor Lieberman was speaking on Wednesday at the end of a three-day visit to Russia.

He said Tehran's nuclear program is the world's problem, not just Israel's. And Lieberman added that its Arab neighbors should be even more concerned about the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran than Israel is.

Avigdor Lieberman, Israeli Foreign Minister, said, "We do not intend to bomb Iran, and nobody will solve their problems with our hands. We don't need that. Israel is a strong country, we can protect ourselves. But the world should understand that Iran's entrance into the nuclear club would prompt a whole arms race, a crazy race of unconventional weaponry across the Mideast that is a threat to the entire world order."
