Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran President, Says Country Is Ready To Resume Nuclear Talks

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 26, 2012

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran is ready to revive talks with the U.S. and other world powers, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Thursday, but suggested that Tehran’s foes will have to make compromises to prevent negotiations from again collapsing in stalemate.

Iran’s insistence that it will never give up uranium enrichment – the process that makes material for reactors as well as weapons – scuttled negotiations a year ago and still looms as a potential deal breaker even as tougher Western sanctions target Iran’s critical oil exports.

Ahmadinejad added his voice to proposals by Iranian officials to return to talks Thursday at a rally in the southeastern city of Kerman, saying a nation that is in the “right” should not be worried about holding dialogue.

Iran indicated earlier this week that it was ready for a new round of talks with the five permanent U.N. Security Council members plus Germany. Ahmadinejad – the highest-ranking official so far to make the offer – gave no further details about a potential timetable or venue.

The European Union’s foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton had welcomed the proposals to restart talks – possibly in Turkey – but urged Tehran to bring “some concrete issues to talk about.”

“It is very important that it is not just about words. A meeting is not an excuse, a meeting is an opportunity and I hope that they will seize it,” she said Monday in Brussels as the 27-nation bloc adopted its toughest measures yet on Iran with an oil embargo and freeze of the country’s central bank assets.

Iran Threatens to Block Oil Shipments, as U.S. Prepares Sanctions

WASHINGTON — A senior Iranian official on Tuesday delivered a sharp threat in response to economic sanctions being readied by the United States, saying his country would retaliate against any crackdown by blocking all oil shipments through the Strait of Hormuz, a vital artery for transporting about one-fifth of the world’s oil supply.

The declaration by Iran’s first vice president, Mohammad-Reza Rahimi, came as President Obama prepares to sign legislation that, if fully implemented, could substantially reduce Iran’s oil revenue in a bid to deter it from pursuing a nuclear weapons program.

Prior to the latest move, the administration had been laying the groundwork to attempt to cut off Iran from global energy markets without raising the price of gasoline or alienating some of Washington’s closest allies.

Apparently fearful of the expanded sanctions’ possible impact on the already-stressed economy of Iran, the world’s third-largest energy exporter, Mr. Rahimi said, “If they impose sanctions on Iran’s oil exports, then even one drop of oil cannot flow from the Strait of Hormuz,” according to Iran’s official news agency. Iran just began a 10-day naval exercise in the area.

In recent interviews, Obama administration officials have said that the United States has developed a plan to keep the strait open in the event of a crisis. In Hawaii, where President Obama is vacationing, a White House spokesman said there would be no comment on the Iranian threat to close the strait. That seemed in keeping with what administration officials say has been an effort to lower the level of angry exchanges, partly to avoid giving the Iranian government the satisfaction of a response and partly to avoid spooking financial markets.      Read the rest of this entry »

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 »
