Collapse of Moscow-Tehran talks leaves no room for delay in imposing sanctions on Iran

Collapse of Moscow-Tehran talks leaves no room for delay in imposing sanctions on Iran  

NCRI – On February 27, the Associated Press reported the failure of Moscow-Tehran talks over the suspension of the Iranian regime’s nuclear program.

“Russia dampened hopes for a deal to rein in Iran’s nuclear program, telling Tehran on Monday that it must first freeze domestic uranium enrichment.”  AP reported.

Reuters also reported from Brussels on Monday that at the conclusion of their monthly session, European Union Foreign Ministers, lauded Russia for its efforts but regretted the failure of Tehran talks.

German Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, told reporters that Tehran was trying to divide the world community but will not succeed.

French Foreign Minister, Philippe Douste-Blazy, also told reporters that the negotiations between Russia and Iran had not succeeded.

Following a meeting with Japan’s Foreign Minister in Tokyo on Monday, the Mullahs’ Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, said, “Iran will not suspend its uranium enrichment program.”

News of the failure comes at a time when, after his talks with Sergei Kiriyenko, the Iranian regime’s Atomic Energy Agency Organization Chief, Gholamreza Aghazadeh demagogically claimed the two sides had reached agreement on the Russian proposal. 

The Iranian Resistance again warns about diversions and maneuvers by the mullahs’ regime to buy time in order to proceed with its nuclear weapons program and calls for the imposition of comprehensive oil, technological, military and diplomatic sanctions by the Security Council to prevent this regime from acquiring nuclear weapons.
