Turkey PM Erdogan Slams West over Iran Nuclear Pressure


Iran hints at acceptance of atom deal with powers
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran said on Monday it could endorse a U.N. deal for it to send potential nuclear fuel abroad for processing, the first official indication that Tehran could respond positively to the outline agreement. The remark by Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki was the most positive yet from a senior Iranian official and hinted at a shift in backroom debate between hardliners and moderates in the faction-ridden Iranian leadership on whether to accept the deal. French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said it was urgent for world powers to make a lasting deal with Tehran to avert an Israeli strike over its disputed nuclear program. "They (Israel) will not tolerate an Iranian bomb. We know that, all of us. So that is an additional risk and that is why we must decrease the tension and solve the problem. Hopefully we are going to stop this race to a confrontation," Kouchner said. "There is the time that Israel will offer us before reacting, because Israel will react as soon as they know clearly that there is a threat," he added in an interview published by Britain's Daily Telegraph daily.
In
Iran, Iranian officials said U.N. inspectors were given access to a hitherto secret uranium enrichment site bunkered inside a mountain near the holy Shi'ite city of Qom. The four senior experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency intended to verify Tehran's stance that the plant was designed to make only low-enriched fuel for electricity, not the high-purity version for nuclear arms. Alaeddin Boroujerdi, head of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign affairs committee, said later the inspectors had carried out their mission and suggested they may leave Iran later on Monday, ISNA news agency reported.
Ας θαυμάσουμε το αναστημα του κ Kouchner (o οποίος φιγουράρει στην παραπάνω φωτογραφία με τον Λήσταρχο και έμπορο ανθρωπίνων οργάνων ΘΑΤΣΙ) .. ο οποίος μας διαβεβαιώνει ότι η Διεθνή κοινότητα θα πρέπει να υποκύψει στις απειλές του Ισραήλ, ότι δηλάδη θα κτυπήσει τις Πυρηνικές εγκαταστάσεις του ΙΡΑΝ, και να πιεστεί το ΙΡΑΝ να υποκύψει και αυτό.

Turkey's prime minister has accused the West of treating Iran unfairly over its nuclear programme.Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the UK Guardian newspaper Western fears Iran wanted to build the bomb were "gossip".His comments come as a team from the UN nuclear watchdog continues its inspection of a previously secret uranium plant near the city of Qom, the BBC reported.Erdogan is due in Tehran for talks with both President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the country's Supreme Leader.The Turkish leader suggested that there was a dual standard in the West's approach towards Iran.He said any military strike against Iran would be "crazy". Erdogan also said many of the states which objected to any move by Iran to build a nuclear arsenal - including all the permanent members of the UN Security Council - possessed one themselves."There is a style of approach which is not very fair because those [who accuse Iran of pursuing nuclear weapons] have very strong nuclear infrastructures," Erdogan said."So although Iran doesn't have a weapon, those who say Iran shouldn't have them are those countries which do," he added. His comments come as world powers await Iran's response to a new proposed deal over its uranium enrichment programme. Under the arrangement, Iran would send some enriched uranium to Russia to be turned into fuel. The proposed deal is seen as a way for Tehran to get the fuel it needs for an existing reactor, while giving guarantees to the West that its enriched uranium will not be used for nuclear weapon.

After Iran held wide-ranging talks with the West on the basis of its latest package of proposals, Turkey moves to deplore a military intervention to solve Iran's nuclear case. "In case of [nuclear] conflict [on Iran's nuclear program], Turkey believes that diplomacy comes first," Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu told Spanish newspaper El Pais. "There should be no military intervention," he added. Iranian representatives held seven-and-a-half hour talks with diplomats from the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - Russia, China, France, Britain and the US - plus Germany (P5+1) in Geneva on October 1 on global issues and the country's mutual concerns with the West. The two sides also agreed to continue the talks through October. In response to whether Turkey accepts a nuclear Iran, Davutoglu said, "Nuclear energy is a right for all countries. Iran can have the energy for peaceful aims in accordance with regulations of the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA]." "Turkey wants a region free from nuclear weapons. I'm not saying that sanctions can not be an instrument but they will hurt the people of Iran and its neighboring states." The remarks come as Iran has announced that the newly-announced Fordo nuclear facility is open to IAEA inspection. The Fordo site is the country's second nuclear plant, after the Natanz facility in central Iran, which will enrich uranium to the 5 percent level suitable for power plant fuel. In line with Iran's transparency policy over its nuclear activities, head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali-Akbar Salehi invited the IAEA chief Mohamed ElBaradei to Tehran to set a date for the agency to inspect the under-construction Fordo nuclear facility.
