NCRI - Revelation of two secret nuclear sites east of Tehran by the Iranian Resistance on Thursday and concealment of nuclear facilities near the city of Qom by the Iranian regime which were exposed by leaders of the United States, France and Britain on Friday heightened the need to impose immediate comprehensive sanctions against the regime. Any delay would pave the way for the regime to acquire nuclear bomb.
The underground nuclear facilities near Qom were first unveiled in a press conference in Paris by the Iranian Resistance on December 20, 2005. Mr. Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chair of the NCRI’s Foreign Affairs Committee disclosed information about four underground complexes comprised of tunnels and installations serving the regime’s nuclear programs. He said: “The first complex is located near Qom close to the salt lake. This is comprised of several tunnels and underground buildings. Construction of the complex started in year 2,000.”
NCRI - Mahmoud Ahmadinajad, the Iranian regime’s President, was forced to attend the 64th session of the UN General Assembly with a much smaller accompanying delegation than expected due to their failure to obtain visas.
This has been while the Iranian regime had applied for visas for a 122-member delegation through Swiss embassy in Tehran, which represents the U.S. interests in Iran.
