Jeez…..it is that time of the year……the UN meetings where everyone gets to act out.
For years Israel would go to the annual UN meeting and bring their chart about the nukes that Iran were developing…..the same year after year……that is until 2018….apparently they have a new plan.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran on Thursday of keeping a “secret atomic warehouse” just outside its capital, despite the 2015 deal with world powers that was meant to keep it from obtaining nuclear weapons. Hours later, Iran dismissed the allegation. Holding up a poster-board map of an area near Tehran as he spoke at the United Nations General Assembly, Netanyahu told world leaders that Iranian officials have been keeping up to 300 tons of nuclear equipment and material in a walled, unremarkable-looking property near a rug-cleaning operation, the AP reports.
“You have to ask yourself a question: Why did Iran keep a secret atomic archive and a secret atomic warehouse?” Netanyahu asked. “What Iran hides, Israel will find.” Netanyahu didn’t specify what the material and equipment was, and it was not immediately clear whether it was a violation of the nuclear deal. The International Atomic Energy Agency, which has been monitoring Iran’s compliance with the agreement, had no immediate comment. In a tweet, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif derided the Israeli presentation as an “arts and craft show” by a country that he said needed to come clean about its own nuclear program. He said there was nothing to the Israeli allegation.
Every year their was a new prediction of when Iran would acquire those nukes….it ranged from months to 5 years just depending on the audience they were addressing.
Israel has been lying about Iran for 30 years and now they have helped the Neocons running game in the White House get the action against Iran they have been trying to achieve….
Of course Israel has not appreciated any form of nuke deal short of the total destruction of the state of Iran….but the major powers are trying hard to save the nuke deal……
In a statement after a meeting of Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and Iran, the group said they were determined to develop payment mechanisms to continue trade with Iran despite skepticism by many diplomats that this will be possible.
“Mindful of the urgency and the need for tangible results, the participants welcomed practical proposals to maintain and develop payment channels notably the initiative to establish a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) to facilitate payments related to Iran’s exports, including oil,” the group said in a joint statement issued after the statement.
Our Dear Leader wishes to cut a deal with Iran on the nuke thingy……
The United States is seeking to negotiate a treaty with Iran to include Tehran’s ballistic missile programme and regional activity, the US special envoy for Iran said on Wednesday, ahead of UN meetings in New York next week.
Iran has rejected US attempts to hold high-level talks since President Donald Trump tore up a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers earlier this year.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo listed a dozen demands in May that he said could make up a new agreement, although envoy Brian Hook’s reference to a treaty, which would have to be approved by the US Senate, appears to be a new focus.
The 2015 deal was an executive agreement that was not ratified by the US Senate and covered only Iran’s nuclear programme.
There was nothing wrong with the original plan……these attempts by the Trumpian toads is a worthless waste of time……
The Neocons are revving up the rhetoric…..kinda reminds me of the days before the invasion of Iraq in 2003…..are we on that road again?
