“US 'NO' to Iran's N-programme illogical, baseless: Experts

ISLAMABAD – Iran should be allowed to continue its peaceful nuclear programme, as it has every right to provide its people with their most basic need i.e. electricity, experts said on Saturday.
Speaking at a seminar ‘Iranian Nuclear Programme in Regional Perspective” held at the Iranian embassy, experts including Prof Dr Syed Riffat Hussein, Akram Zaki, Dr Tahir Ahmed Khan and Imtiaz Gul criticised the US policies saying the US and its allies needed not only to accept but also respect Iran’s growing role in the international community. The speakers defended Iran’s nuclear programme and asked the world community to immediately call off sanction against Iran.
Akram Zaki, former ambassador stated that the US and its allies also needed to stop their irrepressible tirade of threats against Iran.
“Any issue they have over Iran’s nuclear programme should be resolved with sincere democratic efforts. This situation, if not contained with cool head and if miscalculations continue, can easily turn into a crisis with potentially global ramifications for the rule of law under the NPT and for the economic and security interests of all concerned in the region and beyond,” he said adding that the world should not allow itself to be dragged into another conflict on false pretences in this region again.”

“so because a bunch of iranians say that iran should have nuclear weapons, you decide they're right. Wow, you are simple minded. By that logic, you should fall right in line with the Israeli right wing and everything they say about israel, because they're israeli and experts on israel.”

““One often hears that Iran’s real purpose for pursuing nuclear technology is to develop nuclear weapons and that with its huge oil and gas reserves it has no real need for nuclear energy. I must say these claims are politically motivated and are based entirely on hatred and distrust towards the region and its people,” Akram Zaki said while addressing the seminar.”

“Dr Tahir Ahmed Khan said Uranium enrichment for a civilian nuclear programme was Iran’s inalienable right. “It cannot be taken away because of the West’s stereotypical suspension towards Iran.” “Iran has a real need for nuclear power and should be allowed to continue its civilian nuclear programme as there is no evidence of a nuclear weapons programme,” he said. Dr Tahir said adding that it was important to remember the history of Iran’s nuclear programme and its relation with the West to fully comprehend the enduring “crisis.””

“Dr Tahir told the participants that Iran’s nuclear history pre-dated the current Islamic government, which is being accused of developing “weapons of mass destruction.” It originated in the mid-1970s when the US-installed dictator Shah unveiled plans to purchase several nuclear reactors from Germany, France and the United States to generate electricity. Shah was placed in power after the CIA Operation Ajax in 1953 destroyed Iran’s democracy and replaced it with a US-friendly dictatorship when their government negotiated for more than 15pc of oil profits. At that time, the United States encouraged Iran to expand its non-oil energy base. In recognition of Iran’s energy needs, US-Iran Nuclear Energy Agreement was signed in July 1978 - several months before the Islamic revolution.”

“Poll: Arab majority believes nuclear Iran helps Mideast
August 5, 2010

WASHINGTON (JTA) -- The percentage of Arabs who believe a nuclear-armed Iran will help the Middle East situation has doubled since last year.

The annual Brookings Institute poll, released Thursday, found that 57 percent of Arabs think a nuclear-armed Iran will cause a “more positive” situation in the Middle East, up from 29 percent last year.

Meanwhile, 63 percent of respondents were “discouraged” by the Obama administration’s Middle East policies. Last year, 51 percent of Arabs polled said they were “hopeful.”

Shibley Telhami, who conducted the poll, said the disappointment in the Obama administration is based on its handling of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Ynet reported. Just under half of respondents said Israel influences U.S. policy based on its own interests.

The survey was conducted between June 29 and July 30 in Egypt, Morocco, Lebanon, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. Nearly 4,000 Arabs were questioned, with a 1.6 percent margin of error.

Telhami, of the University of Maryland and Brookings Saban Center for Middle East Policy, conducted the survey in conjunction with the Zogby Institute.

According to the poll, there has been no major shift in views about the Arab-Israeli conflict and its resolution.”

“Iran bolsters friendships abroad
By Jonathan Marcus

Diplomatic correspondent, BBC News.

The US and its European allies like to see Iran as an increasingly isolated country; its economy hobbled more and more by economic sanctions and with the pressure growing weekly.

There is no doubt that Iran is to a large extent isolated from key markets and that the sanctions are beginning to act as a significant brake on its economy.

This was already in a bad way due to mismanagement and structural problems.

Iran's inability, for example, to import Western technology for its oil and gas industry is seriously reducing its ability to exploit this vital natural asset over time.

However, as this week's gathering of the Developing 8 (D8) in Nigeria shows, there is no isolation and there is no isolation.

Strong sympathy”

“Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is something of a globetrotter, pursuing an active diplomacy in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Balkans.

The D8 gathering brings together a diverse collection of countries, including a number who are significant players in their own regions - Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan and Turkey.

All are predominantly Muslim countries or have large Muslim populations.

While principally a trading or economic grouping, politics is never really far away and they are set to give a resounding endorsement of the need for all countries to be able to secure the benefits of peaceful nuclear energy.

This will be taken by Iran as an endorsement of its efforts to master various nuclear technologies. It insists that this is for civil, not military, purposes.”

“The meeting underlines the fact that many governments - especially in the developing world - still have strong sympathy for Iran's aims.

They view its battle with the United Nations Security Council over the enrichment of uranium in very different terms from those perceived in Washington and European capitals.

Dynamic diplomacy

The meeting highlights the fact too that Iran has a dynamic and active diplomacy of its own; something that is often forgotten with the focus on US coalition-building to back each new round of UN-imposed sanctions.

Mr Ahmadinejad received a warm reception from the D8 delegates At many levels Iran's diplomacy has actually been quite successful.

It recently engaged with two of the key emerging regional powers - Turkey and Brazil. They had intervened to try to find a compromise deal that would enable the fuelling of a research reactor in Iran used to produce medical isotopes.”

“The US and its supporters would argue that it is wrong to see its differences with Iran as a battle between Tehran and the West.

It is, after all, the demands of the UN - the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the Security Council - with which Iran is failing to comply.

But that is not how it is seen in many parts of the world and Mr Ahmadinejad's warm reception among the D8 is evidence that many still have a very different view of Iran and its nuclear struggles.
The D8 vowes to support Iran economically all the way.


Hundreds of Indian Shia Muslims Friday afternoon protested in India’s national capital, Delhi against unjustified UN and European Union sanctions imposed on Iran.

Iran has an unalienable rights to use Peaceful nuclear energy. After 10 years of inspections by the UN, IAEA no smoking guns has been found and unlike the rogue Zionists state, Iran is a signatory to the NPT.
