Iran says to continue building at Arak nuclear site despite deal (in open violation of agreement)
Reuters ^ | Wed Nov 27, 2013 10:48am EST

Posted on 11/27/2013 8:51:32 AM PST by Dave346

Iran will pursue construction at the Arak heavy-water reactor, Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif was quoted as saying on Wednesday, despite a deal with world powers to shelve a project they fear could yield plutonium for atomic bombs.

France, one of the six powers that negotiated Sunday's interim pact with Iran to curb its disputed nuclear program, said in response to Zarif's statement that Tehran had to keep to what was agreed in the Geneva talks.

The uncompleted research reactor emerged as one of several big stumbling blocks in the marathon negotiations, in which Iran agreed to restrain its atomic activities for six months in return for limited sanctions relief. The agreement is intended to buy time for talks on a final settlement of the dispute.

Western powers fear Arak could be a source of plutonium - one of two materials, along with highly enriched uranium, that can be used for the core of a nuclear weapon - once it is operational. Iran says it would produce medical isotopes only.

According to the agreed text, Iran said it would not make "any further advances of its activities" on the Arak reactor, under construction near a western Iranian town with that name.

"Capacity at the Arak site is not going to increase. It means no new nuclear fuel will be produced and no new installations will be installed, but construction will continue there," Zarif told parliament in translated comments broadcast on Iran's Press TV.

When asked about this, French Foreign Ministry spokesman Romain Nadal said: "In the interim accord, the Arak reactor is specifically targeted and the end of all work at this reactor. In the agreement and the text, which has been approved by the Iranian authorities, the Arak reactor is clearly targeted."

...despite a deal with world powers to shelve a project they fear could yield plutonium for atomic bombs. France, one of the six powers that negotiated Sunday's landmark initial accord with Iran...

See how al-Reuters sanitizes Obama right out of fault or blame. Just like Stalin had Leon Trotsky airbrushed out of a photo.

Poof... not Obama connection to the Iranian fiasco.

Nothing like 20 years of precedent to convince them. It's the impotence of power.

“France, one of the six powers that negotiated Sunday’s interim pact with Iran to curb its disputed nuclear program, said in response to Zarif’s statement that Tehran had to keep to what was agreed in the Geneva talks.”

When you think about it, it's an interesting strategy to sign an agreement, accept the benefits ($8 billion in unfrozen assets), and then see how much you can violate it. They'll say the language is unclear, while boasting to their populace how they've fooled the West.

Curious as to what the response is to this from the Iranian negotiator... you know, the one that works for the 0’ administration, the one born there, the one that had the Iranian interests in mind during “negotiations”.

Obama and Kerry are not surprised. This agreement was strictly for domestic political reasons (resurrect Obama's tarnished image) and to prevent Israel from launching an attack against Iran's nuclear facilities. It kicks the can six months down the road and will set the stage for another phony agreement to kick the can further. They are following the NK template set up by Clinton. It will take years before we find out the Iranians have been cheating.

What a bunch of boneheads in this administration. You know how you pretend to grab a toddler’s nose and then show them your thumb sticking out between your first two fingers and say, “I’ve got your nose!”? You do that with the boneheads in this administration and they scream and run away looking for a plastic surgeon.

The arabic translation was in the form of a picture of the mullah flipping the bird. Iran didn't have to work very hard to make Kerry and Obama look like imbeciles. I am ashamed that my country has become so pathetic.

“The ink has not even dried on the agreement and already we are hearing provocative announcements from Iran, like this, whose coyness and ambiguity could well augur a breach of the deal,” Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz told Reuters when asked about Zarif’s statement.

They want to annihilate the Jews, period. Satan has planted it in their hearts to do his bidding. And a worthless emailed ‘agreement’ penned by Jarrett, Obama and Kerry isn't going to stop them.

Prayers for Israel in this dangerous time.

More like North Korea than we care to admit -are we not giving Iran 8 billion dollars to cheat on their part of the deal that they will now use to fund their nuclear weapons development programs?

Almost like it was planned that way
