Iran on Tuesday insisted any demands it should suspend sensitive atomic activities would cross its “red line”, days after world powers submitted a new package aimed at ending the nuclear standoff.
“We have said several times that uranium enrichment is Iran’s red line and we must have this technology,” Deputy Foreign Minister Ali Reza Sheikh Attar said, quoted by the state IRNA news agency.
Suspending uranium enrichment — which the West fears could be used to make a nuclear weapon — is the key demand in the deal offered Saturday to Tehran by EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana on behalf of world powers.
The package offers Iran talks on a package of technological and economic incentives, so long as Tehran suspends uranium enrichment.
As Flap has been writing about for years now. Iran WILL NOT voluntarily suspend uranium enrichment. So, the choice is clear to the West:
1. Allow Iran to become a nuclear weapons possessing country
2. Militarily destroy Iran’s nuclear weapon producing capacity
3. Embargo Iran and sanction them so severely that they are “forced” to forego uranium enrichment.
Apparently the EU and United States are not serious – even yet!
