Iran To Retaliate On Countries Voting Against It At IAEA

SAN FRANCISCO
PNS

Iran has announced that it plans to retaliate against those countries which voted against Iran at International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governers meeting. These nations include Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea and United States of America.

IAEA's new resolution passed on Wednesday criticizes Iran for what it calls are 'violations' but at the same time praises its new willingness to cooperate. However, IAEA attached harshly worded warnings for any 'further violations.' Similar warnings were given to Iraq just before American led attack on Iraq.

"This resolution is a success for Iran and proving the sincerity of the countrys claims on peaceful use of nuclear energy and not pursuing production of weapons of mass destruction," Hamid Reza Assefi, spokesperson for Foreign Ministry said.

Iran praised Malaysia, Russia and South Africa for their pro-Iran stance at the IAEA.

Iran has already committed itself for full cooperation with IAEA over nuclear inspections and temporarily suspending uranium enrichment until clarification of issue.

After open committments by Iran, it is not clear why IAEA felt the need to pass a resolution with harsh warnings.

Interesting. Saw a terrorism expert on FOX yesterday who said that with bin Laden, in Tehran, as well as al Qaeda in Iran, the regime would use them as a tool of extortion against these same nations.
