In its lead article yesterday, entitled, “Don’t threaten us with the Security Council,” the daily Kayhan, controlled by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and close to mullahs’ new president, wrote brazenly that under no circumstances would the regime abandon “using nuclear fuel cycle technology.”
In a blatant blackmail aimed at preventing the referral of its nuclear file to the United Nations Security Council, the daily wrote that if the EU-3 did not recognize Tehran’s right to use that technology, the regime would have no interest in “abiding by the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty,” “immediately resume work in Isfahan uranium facility” and “accelerate dramatically preparations at Natanz enrichment site and move to start it up.”
The daily added, “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s principle-guided government will demonstrate greater motivation and capability to insist on Iran’s rights than the West could ever imagine. Popular backing would provide it with many possibilities of surprising maneuvers.”
Confident of EU’s appeasement policy, it wrote, “Iran has incalculable capacity to destabilize the entire Middle East. Given the circumstance, this destabilization could include a wide range of activities from limited local clashes to plunging the entire region into chaos and clashes.” Recalling the regime’s military capabilities “in missile defense, armor, ground forces and air power as well as asymmetrical warfare that would directly target the enemies’ weaknesses,” it warned of using weapons of mass destruction.
In a hollow show of force, the paper unveiled the regime’s concealment and deception in its nuclear weapons projects. It wrote, “Westerners know almost nothing about Iran’s nuclear facilities, pre-emptive military power and potential defensive capabilities.”
Mr. Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, said, “Having undertaken the biggest internal purge in the past 26 years, Khamenei has resorted to this hollow show of force to dissuade the international community, particularly the European countries, from referring Tehran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council.”
Pointing to comments by Hossein Moussavian, Tehran’s nuclear point man in talks with the EU-3, he said, “Nothing has helped the mullahs more in inching closer to the nuclear bomb than the two-year talks with the EU-3.” “Not only preserved Iran’s nuclear capabilities and saved them from any possible danger, such a military attack, but the circumstances enabled Iran to continue completing its capabilities. For example, Isfahan’s UCF project was completed during this period and is now ready for use,” Moussavian boasted.
Reiterating that any appeasement of the mullahs’ would only embolden them in their crimes against the Iranian people, efforts to acquire nuclear weapons and export terrorism and fundamentalism, Mohaddessin called for the immediate referral of Tehran’s nuclear file to the UN Security Council and an end to the shameful policy of appeasement.
