Iran’s View of the Agreement

[My friend David Smith has written a letter to his local newspaper, succinctly (under 200 words) summarizing the Iranian view of the new Agreement, in contrast to our own president’s.  He rightly calls for support of the Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act, already sponsored by 59 senators!  (When legislation is sponsored by a bipartisan majority like that, the objecters ought to be called upon to explain their reasons for dissent.)

Here is his letter.]

_____________________________________________

President Obama has crafted what he considers a breakthrough agreement with Iran, to stop Iran’s illegal program of uranium enrichment for nuclear weapons.

Here is the United Nations position (Resolution no. 1696):

“The UN demands that Iran shall suspend all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development, to be verified by the IAEA.”

Here is what Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s chief negotiator, said about Obama’s Geneva Agreement:

“No facility will be closed; enrichment will continue, and qualitative and nuclear research will be expanded. All research into a new generation of centrifuges will continue.”

Here is Iranian President Rouhani’s victory tweet:

“In the Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation’s will.”

And here is what President Obama says:

What we want to do is …give peace a chance.

We may each draw our own conclusions about the likelihood of Iran actually complying. But the Senate should immediately shore up our position in the very likely event that Iran violates the agreement. For that reason, Senators Tester and Baucus should support the bipartisan “Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013.” Currently co-sponsored by 59 senators, this act would strengthen sanctions unless the president verifies that Iran is verifiably complying with agreements.

    06, which is not a DUI under the breath test statute. Any medical costs incurred

    that person’s sole debt. The first and foremost requirement for an online divorce is the first.
