Iran will not bow to ‘pressure’

TEHRAN: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Friday that Iran will not abandon its right to peaceful nuclear energy despite Western pressure, the official IRNA news agency reported. 
 
“Pressure of some Western countries to force Iran to abandon its right (to nuclear technology) will not get a result,” IRNA quoted Ahmadinejad as saying.
 
Major world powers are preparing to deliver a pivotal proposal to Iran combining incentives to halt work that could produce nuclear weapons with a threat of UN Security Council action if it refuses.   
 
IRNA said Ahmadinejad made the remarks at a meeting with the visiting head of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.   
 
“Our activities have been based on the International Atomic Energy Agency's regulations and we have had maximum cooperation with them and there is no sign or reason for us not to cooperate with the agency,” Ahmadinejad said.   
 
“Unfortunately, some countries which have nuclear arsenals and are not a signatory the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty... want to deprive us from our obvious right,” he said in an apparent reference to Israel.

Iran can't be coerced to abandon its rights: Ahmadinejad

VIENNA: Iran will not give up its nuclear rights, despite being given just "weeks" by world powers to suspend uranium enrichment or face the consequences, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said.

"Pressure by certain Western countries aiming to make us abandon our nuclear rights will not show results," Ahmadinejad said on Friday, according to the official IRNA news agency.

He was responding to a joint initiative announced the previous day by the foreign ministers of the five permanent UN Security Council members, plus Germany, who offered Tehran a package of benefits if it suspends sensitive nuclear fuel work.

But the offer, issued after intense talks here, came conditioned with a threat of penalties, including UN sanctions, if Tehran refuses to suspend uranium enrichment and reprocessing.

US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Friday that Iran had only weeks to respond to the proposal of trade, security and technology incentives if Iran suspends uranium enrichment.

"There is no kind of ultimatum deadline, although I think we are talking about several weeks," said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The foreign minister also refused to be drawn on what measures might be taken if Iran refused the international community's proposals.

"At the moment we won't guess because such guesses pour oil on the fire of emotional discussions and give a reason for those who want to destroy the possibility of a negotiated resolution," he was quoted by the RIA-Novosti news agency as saying.

Kahmeini rules Iran. 

Ahmadmeninjad is only a figurehead trying to establish a populist base of power.

I think a big part of the US diplomatic strategy is to keep this competition alive.

I find it funny that here in Australia the gov't is looking at nuclear energy as a cheap way for giving energy resources than coal. And here we have this issue with iran

If you're going to tell one country not to do it - for whatever reason - then you shouldn't really do it. I don't know. I know there are those that probably use it for negative purposes.

We should be looking at what happened in Chenoybl, they tried and they still have consequences after these years.

Khameini rules Iran.  He is Leader, and as such exercises supreme religious and political power.

Ahmadmeninjad is only the president.  Anything he proposes in his 4-8 years can be overruled by Khameini, who rules for life.

Ahmagmeninjad is essentially a manager, and the Ayatollahs will not put up with an accumulation of power by this secular office.  They are going to insist all real power be held by the theocracy.
