On Tuesday, the IAEA chief Yukiya Amano on his return from Tehran announced in Vienna that a deal has been reached between IAEA and the Islamic Republic under which IAEA inspectors will be allowed to visit the so-called ‘disputed sites’.
The announcement shocked Israel and its western backers who are scheduled to meet with Iranian officials in Baghdad tomorrow. It seems Yukiya Amano, who was put in that position by the United States to act as its agent against Iran’s nuclear program, has failed his sponsor.
On Monday, a fuming Netanyahu urged the P5+1 group lead by EU’s Baroness Catherine Ashton not to make any concessions to Iran on its nuclear program.
“Iran threatens Israel, peace and the entire world. Against this malicious intention, the world’s leading countries must show determination, not weakness,” ranted Netanyahu.
I bet the Jewish bigot doesn’t believe that anyone know Israel has not only ‘wiped off 5,000-year-old Palestine’ but also have terrorized, threatened and invaded all its neighboring countries.
What worries Israel and its western-backers, is that a compromise between P5+1 and Iran will put an end to their excuse to demonize the Islamic Republic and its leaders.
The P5+1 hope the talks will result in an agreement by the Islamic Republic to stop enriching uranium to a higher level that could be turned quickly into the fissile core of nuclear arms.
Several Iranian lawmakers have threatened that any progress at Baghdad meeting depends on the removal of all western sanctions against Iranian banks and oil industry.
In order to kill any Zionist propaganda lies – Iraqi foreign minister Hoshyar Zebari told reporters that no direct meeting between Iranian and American official has been arranged on the sidelines of Baghdad meeting on Wednesday.
Tehran’s chief negotiator Saeed Jalili is due to head the Iranian side, and EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton will lead the delegations of the world powers.
Mohandas Gandhi, a blogger, had this to say about Yukiya Amano.
“Former IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei almost single-handedly established the program’s credibility by refusing to capitulate to the Bush administration’s assertion that Iraq maintained and/or was creating nuclear weapons. The IAEA is now headed by a new gentleman named Yukiya Amano. His appointment to his position was heavily backed by the United States. Furthermore, a 2010 Wikileaks cable revealed that in a meeting with Glyn Davies, the U.S. IAEA rep, Yukiya Amano “reminded [the] Ambassador on several occasions that he would need to make concessions to the G-77 [the developing nations], which correctly required him to be fair-minded and independent, but that he was solidly in the U.S. court on every key strategic decision, from high-level personnel appointments to the handling of Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program.” The IAEA no longer maintains the credibility that ElBaradei built“.
