'Unannounced visits' to n-facilities part of Iran's proposal

Oct 16 2013, 8:31am CDT | by IANS

Tehran, Oct 16 (IANS) Unannounced visits to nuclear facilities in Iran is part of the country's proposal at the ongoing meeting with world powers in Geneva, Iran's nuclear negotiator said Wednesday, according to semi-official ISNA news agency.

Tehran, Oct 16 — Unannounced visits to nuclear facilities in Iran is part of the country's proposal at the ongoing meeting with world powers in Geneva, Iran's nuclear negotiator said Wednesday, according to semi-official ISNA news agency.

Iran will accept the "additional protocol" to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Abbas Araqchi, who is leading Iran's nuclear talks with the world powers in Geneva, told ISNA, Xinhua reported.

The protocol allows unexpected inspections of Iran's nuclear facilities by the UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, and obliges Iran to provide the agency with any information regarding its nuclear activities.

The official IRNA news agency Wednesday confirmed reports of the inclusion of "additional protocol" in Iran's proposed package in the nuclear talks.

Araqchi told ISNA that the level of Iran's uranium enrichment and implementing "additional protocol" are parts of Iran's proposal included in its last stage.

Earlier, Iran announced that it would put forward a three-stage proposal in the Geneva nuclear talks.

The proposal package, if agreed upon at the first stage, will automatically commit the other party to "the recognition of the uranium enrichment right on Iran's soil" as the objective of the negotiations, ISNA said.

The Iranian negotiator added that Iran waits for "change of approach" from the world powers in the talks.

The climate at Tuesday's negotiations was "positive" and both sides conducted "serious" talks and tried to avoid "disputable discussions", said Araqchi, adding that "we have witnessed positive tone in the other party, but their approach hasn't changed yet".

It would be difficult to advance in the talks without a change in approach, he emphasised.

The Iranian negotiator added that Iran's offer is just a proposal and is subject to modifications, according to ISNA.

Iran and the P5+1 representatives - Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany - had "very detailed technical discussions" during the new round of Iran nuclear talks, said Michael Mann, spokesman for EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton, Tuesday.

It was reported that Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif gave a power-point presentation of Iran's proposals in the meeting Tuesday morning.

Meanwhile, a source at the Iranian delegation told Russia's ITAR-TASS news agency that the next round of talks between Iran and P5+1 may take place in Geneva in November.

While the negotiations between the two sides were going on, the source was quoted as saying: "The talks are tense, but intensive."

ISIS Still Threatens Yazidis On Mount Sinjar

Oct 21 2014 5:48pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It was the imminent threat of a massacre on Iraq's Sinjar mountain that first drew U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State militant group in August. That threat never went away. On Monday, Islamic State militants returned to attack Sinjar, prompting members of the Yazidi minority living in the area to find refuge up the mountain yet again. Many had never left their homes, even though ISIS fighters continued to surro ...

Obama's Kobani Crossroads

Oct 14 2014 9:38am CDT | Source: Big Government

Obama has consistently disregarded the advice of his military experts on the ISIS threat. And he seems to have written off the Kurdish-Syrian town of Kobani, which may soon be overrun by ISIS. Whatever the U.S. accomplished after about a decade of war in Iraq has, in a matter of months, deteriorated to a situation that may become unprecedented in its instability and threat to Western interests. Obama’s clumsy departure from Ira ...

Iran lays out impossible red lines for nuclear talks

(Algemeiner) Some six weeks before the conclusion of crucial nuclear talks between P5+1 world powers and Iran, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, in a Twitter feed he is believed to operate, posted a graphic laying out 11 non-negotiable “red lines,” beyond which his country’s negotiators would, presumably, not budge. “During the past year, Ayatollah Khamenei, in line with his support for the Iranian negotiators, has also stressed on the Iranian nation’s rights and ...
