Iranian Maniacs

Iran to US: We are reasonable people with peaceful intentions. By the way, na na na na na na

A top Iranian official has claimed a “great victory” over the US after the UN said it would not punish Iran’s nuclear activities with sanctions.
Top negotiator Hassan Rohani added that Iran will “never” give up its right to a nuclear programme.

 

UN atomic agency IAEA welcomed an offer by Iran on Monday to freeze uranium enrichment in a statement that left out any threat of future sanctions.

 

The US had been pushing for Iran to be censured by the UN Security Council.

 

Mr Rohani said the “whole world had turned down America’s calls”.

 

“We have proved that, in an international institution, we are capable of isolating the US. And that is a great victory,” Mr Rohani said.

 

He added that the US representative at the IAEA meeting in Vienna “was enraged and in tears, and everybody said that the Americans had failed and we had won“.

 

It was Iran’s first direct comment on the nuclear controversy since the IAEA resolution on Monday.

According to Mr Rohani, Iran’s offer to suspend uranium enrichment would only apply for the duration of talks with the EU.

 

“We are talking months, not years,” the cleric and head of Iran’s top security body said.

Iran maintains that its nuclear programme is solely for peaceful purposes and rejects accusations that it is working towards technology which could eventually be used for the production of nuclear weapons.

If this issue is left in the hands of the UN, we are all headed for disaster.
