Iran sets domestic uranium enrichment as red line

Nov 10 2013, 4:34am CST | by IANS

Tehran, Nov 10 (IANS) Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Sunday said domestic uranium enrichment is Iran's red line and no concession can be made in this regard.

Tehran, Nov 10 — Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Sunday said domestic uranium enrichment is Iran's red line and no concession can be made in this regard.

The remarks came after three days of intensive nuclear talks between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- Britain, China, France, Russia and the US -- plus Germany in Geneva, which ended Saturday without any deal, reports Xinhua.

The world should trust Iran and its people should enjoy their "legal nuclear rights", said the president, reiterating that his country is only pursuing peaceful nuclear technology.

"The Iranians' rights and the national interests are our red lines, including the nuclear rights within the international regulations and uranium enrichment on Iran's soil," he was quoted as saying by Iran's official news agency, IRNA.

"In words and in action, we have told the negotiators clearly that the threats, sanctions, humiliation and discrimination will not be instrumental (to press Iran) and Iran has not bowed to any power and will not do that," Rouhani said, addressing the Iranian Majlis (parliament).

He dismissed the idea that sanctions was the reasons behind Iran's engagement in the nuclear talks. "Those who have come to the negotiating table with us have come to the conclusion that sanctions are not effective tools to solve the problem."

Iran's talks with the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany was extended to an unscheduled third day, but the two sides failed to nail down an interim deal as expected.

The world powers agreed to reconvene talks with Iran over its controversial nuclear programme on Nov 20.

Obama, ISIS, Kissinger and Clausewitz: American Military Force in Religious Conflicts

Sep 9 2014 6:59am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

It took Henry Kissinger to articulate the sense of chaos and anarchic violence that is spreading across the world: The World Order is crumbling. Beheadings, mass murder of civilians, international borders vanishing, and the inability of political institutions to manage conflict are smashing the carefully constructed post-WWII universe. There's a reason, and historical precedent, and neither bodes well for a swift return to manageable conflicts. Humanity's recent efforts to reduc ...
