According to reports at I24 news and Israel’s channel 13 the head of MI6, Great Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service visited Israel in secret this week to meet with his Israeli counterparts regarding coordinating intelligence efforts over concerns that Iran may be gearing up to make the leap to developing a nuclear weapon. Despite this, the Democrats are demanding that the US reenter the flawed JCPOA.
On January 30, 2019, Channel 2 TV (Iran) aired a report about the delivery of 30 tons of yellowcake from the Shahid Rezaeinzhad industrial complex in Ardakan, Iran to the Isfahan UCF nuclear plant, where the uranium will be enriched. Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that the Ardakan plant uses the latest technology and that it is Iran’s first plant that can produce yellowcake at a large scale. He explained that uranium is mined in Yazd Province at the Saghand mines and that there are additional mines which have not been announced yet. He said that the plant in Ardakan can receive 84,000 tons of uranium ore and turn it into yellowcake, and that similar plants will be built elsewhere in the Yazd Province. He also said that Iran is ready to produce 300 tons of yellowcake per year for the next five or six years.
Mossad documents and satellite photos shed new light on Iran’s nuclear program.
Israel plans to share recently obtained intelligence on covert Iranian nuclear activity, as well as on its efforts to arm its Lebanese proxy Hezbollah, with several countries worldwide in an effort to drive them to act against the Islamic republic.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at the United Nations General Assembly this week where he accused Iran of hiding a nuclear storage facility.
On Thursday, Netanyahu held up photos of secret Iranian nuclear sites, and said before the assembly, “Today I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran.”
New details on stolen Iranian nuclear documents obtained by Israeli spies earlier this year shed light on Tehran’s nuclear ambitions and show that Iran more than two decades ago had assembled the materials it needed to produce a nuclear bomb, according to multiple media reports.
The details expanded on those provided by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu provided in April, first in a private briefing with President Trump and later in an open presentation.
The information came from a trove of documents stolen from a storage facility in Tehran by agents for the Israeli by agency Mossad. Journalists for The New York Times, the Washington Post and others were invited by the Israeli government to view key documents obtained in the raid.
Zarif said the US’ “illegal withdrawal” from the deal and its “bullying methods to bring other governments in line” with that decision have discredited the rule of law in international arena.
Illegal withdrawal from a personal deal with Obama that Iran never signed?
Iranian officials are plotting with U.S. allies across the globe to develop a series a measures meant to counter new sanctions by the Trump administration following its abandonment of the landmark nuclear deal, setting up a global economic showdown between America and its allies over their future business dealings with the Islamic Republic.
Don’t bet against Trump. He may not always win but the odds are in his favor.
At first glance, the new American “roadmap” on Iran, unveiled by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week, looks like a recipe for regime change in Tehran. That view is echoed in initial European Union comments on the 12-point desiderata that Pompeo presented at the Heritage Foundation in Washington.
Both British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the EU’s foreign policy spokeswoman Federica Mogherini claim that by going beyond the controversial “nuclear deal” with Iran (known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — JCPOA), Pompeo may be following a hidden agenda against the Iranian regime.
Now that President Trump has nixed the Iran nuclear deal, the Iranian mullahs who run the country are feeling freer to express themselves more clearly and reveal their murderous ambitions regarding the U.S., Israel, and the Gulf States, while acknowledging their nuclear goals aren’t peaceful at all.
Commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari has slammed the US for being an unreliable partner during his speech at a ceremony in Tehran, reports Fars News Agency. He noted that the fact that the US had abandoned an internationally endorsed agreement only proves this point. He also forecasted that Iran will have to rely on itself.
- You mean the “internationally endorsed agreement” Iran refused to sign?
- Nice uniform. Take pride knowing its shadow will be burned into your skin.
The International Atomic Energy Agency didn’t give a reason for the sudden resignation of Tero Varjoranta, stating Saturday that it doesn’t comment on confidential personnel matters.
Aside from imperiling a landmark international accord and endangering regional and global security, the US pull-out from the 2015 agreement with Iran will have crushing economic consequences for Europe. French, German and UK firms stand to lose billions of euros in investments and trade if they are forced to comply with the sanctions that will be re-imposed and expanded now that the US is no longer a signatory of the nuclear deal.
- Iran was NEVER a signatory of the ‘nuclear deal’.
- Trump has probably prevented Paris from being nuked.
- To hell with 95% of Europe.
The ad, titled “Mr. President, you are right about Iran” in bold letters, is signed by Harper, former Australian prime minister John Howard, Nobel Peace Prize winner and former Northern Ireland first minister David William Trimble, and other former politicians and writers, including John Baird, former Canadian foreign affairs minister.
In November of 2015, it was reported that, “The Obama administration has disclosed to Congress that this summer’s controversial nuclear arms agreement with Iran was never signed and is not legally binding, according to a new report this week. The State Department made the disclosures in a letter to Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo, a Republican, who had written the department to inquire why the agreement as submitted to Congress in July did not bear the signature of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.”
