Iran’s Ahmadinejad Calls UN Nuclear Chief, Yukiya Amano, U.S. Pawn

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 9, 2011

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Tuesday criticized the head of the U.N.’s nuclear agency as an American pawn in the run-up to its expected release of a document said to document Tehran’s nuclear weapons program.

Ahmadinejad said Iran will not stop its nuclear development, adopting a defiant position in advance of the report which could spur efforts for new sanctions against his country.

“If you think you can change the situation of the world through putting pressures on Iran, you are deadly wrong. The Iranian nation will not withdraw an iota,” Ahmadinejad said.

Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, not weapons production.

The report, expected to be issued Wednesday, suggests that Iran made computer models of a nuclear warhead and includes satellite imagery of a large steel container the IAEA believes is used for nuclear arms-related high explosives tests, diplomats told The Associated Press.

Iran unmoved by IAEA report: ‘Won’t budge an iota’

Unsurprisingly, Iran has refused to alter anything in its nuclear program after the UN atomic watchdog alleged that it may be being used to develop a bomb. Iran’s opponents are calling for crippling sanctions against Tehran.

Tehran denied all the allegations even before the report was officially released, because leaks from it have been circulating since the start of the week. Iran says the report is politically motivated and based on false evidence cooked up by American intelligence services. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Yukiya Amano, a pawn of the US.

On Wednesday, President Ahmadinejad reiterated Iran’s position, saying its nuclear program would not “budge an iota” in the wake of the report. He reiterated that his country has no need for a nuclear bomb.

The IAEA said in a controversial appendix to the report that Iran may have been working on a nuclear weapon before 2003 and may be doing so now. No direct evidence of the allegations was presented.

Meanwhile, France has called a UN Security Council session to discuss a new round of sanctions against Iran. Foreign Minister Alain Juppé said in an interview that Paris wants tougher sanctions that “will be able to stop its nuclear weapons program.”

Washington is reportedly considering issuing further unilateral sanctions against Iran, according to the US media. Read the rest of this entry »
