The head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) says the Islamic Republic will not stop enriching uranium for its nuclear energy program.

“We produced 20-percent-enriched uranium for Tehran’s Research Reactor and we will continue producing it as long as we need the fuel,” Fereydoun Abbasi said on Tuesday.

Abbasi made the remarks on the sidelines of the unveiling ceremony of three nuclear achievements.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday issued the order to launch Shahid Rezaeinejad yellowcake production plant and Saghand uranium mines in the central city of Ardakan, and Iran’s first industrial electron accelerator in the city of Taft, Yazd Province.

The uranium extracted from Saghand mines in Yazd will be processed and turned into yellowcake in Shahid Rezaeinejad complex.

“We produce (the fuel) as much as necessary. We will neither send our nuclear material abroad nor will we downgrade it… Other countries had better make rational requests,” the Iranian official said.

He made the remark in response to a question about media speculations that the P5+1 (Britain, China, France, Russia, and the US plus Germany) has asked Iran to turn 20-percent uranium into lower-enriched material during the latest round of the talks held on April 5-6 in the Kazakh city of Almaty.

The Iranian official reiterated that Iran’s enrichment activities were completely under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and therefore there was no cause for concern.

The United States, Israel and some of their allies claim that Iran is pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program, with the US and the European Union using the claim as a pretext to impose illegal sanctions on Iran.
Iran categorically rejects the allegation and says it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes as a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and a member of the IAEA.

  • happened, really did hpeapn. The difference is that the “”deniers”” inevitably think it was a great idea.Empirical evidence: How many “holocaust deniers” like Jews and empathize with them? Why aren’t they saying, “hey dudes, stop being so pessimistic about the Holocaust. We’re doing great, we beat those nasty Nazis, we came out pretty well.”All historical and geographic details are provided to create a total mythical world, in which Jews have rights to the land and Palestinians have noneIsrael thinks that it’s fine that Arabs have plenty of land and states, they made peace with the two that are willing.It is the maps of Fatah and Hamas and Iran and Syria and Lebanon which are mythical constructs showing no Israel. Palestinian TV shows delusionary movies and presents as “fact” delusionary archaeologists who insist that the Temple really is somewhere down in the Sinai and that whole area in Jerusalem never ever had any Temple or Jews in it, as if people just “lost” a whole city. this regime that is occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time.By “this regime” he does not mean a specific government or political party, but “Jews”. Their definition of “occupation”, means “Jews living anywhere in 1000 km”. Really.By definition a Jew living in any modern state in the Levant is a Zionist. How many of these Imams or whoever people say—to their own people— “We want a state where everybody, including Jews and Arabs have full and equal rights, we don’t want to expel or kill anybody, we want to integrate everybody.” Exactly zero. The above is the delusionary fantasy only of a few western leftists. They’ll promote that as the ideal (it is a great ideal, maybe possible in 2400 AD) as rhetorical armor to protect themselves from criticism as the crap goes down. When the extermination comes they’ll of course tut-tut against the nasty Arabs but blame the Jews for not going along with their suicide sufficiently peacefully. What do the “Zionist haters” propose as their Solution instead? They seem to mention no explicit plan but they harp on ‘martyrdom’ and ‘resistance’ forever, and frequently remind their listeners about the Koranic history of prohet Mohammed. He made a truce with a Jewish city (whose location now line in Saudi Arabia!), and then later when he got his army’s strength up he exterminated them because they wouldn’t alter their religion and accept him as Prophet. Survey Says? What is actually said is more on the lines of “slit the throats of the sons of pigs and monkeys”. MEMRI isn’t right wing, it has accurate language translations of Arab and Farsi language media. Sources are provided and are checkable. Editorials are few. They publish sources from Arab liberals who oppose theocracy and militancy. The fact is that the contents of many original sources in original language, and not PR massaged messages intentionally crafted for the West, make non-crazy readers “right wing” about certain issues.
