"Unfortunately, the most likely scenario is that the EU3 will find a way to postpone the negotiations until after the Iranian Presidential elections, June 17. The EU3 have been promoting the idea that if former Iranian President Rafsanjani wins the election in Iran, he will be someone that they can negotiate with."
Sadly, I think you may be right, Dr.
"This is a nightmare scenario for Iranians seeking real democracy in Iran.... They have been preparing to show the world that they consider the regime to be illegitimate, by refusing to participate in an election where the regime chooses the candidates."
I'm afraid the europeans are looking for any way to hang on to the business deals they currently have with the regime......the Iranian people be damned.
And how short-sighted of them (once again) not to realize that helping the Iranian people achieve a democratic gov't and getting rid of the regime would open up Iran to all sorts of new business opportunities that would benefit the europeans and the Iranians.
How can the UN be the UN when this happens?
The case for human rights is the most pressing issue in IRAN.
I grew up in France thinking Europe's defense of Human rights was the pillar of humanity.
Now, I am most dissapointed at the EU's appeasement of this criminal regime.
I am disgusted!!
