Tehran Declaration: Nuclear Victory for Iran

Kourosh Ziabari - Press TV: Any conscious and truthful observer will unequivocally testify that the trilateral agreement between Iran, Turkey and Brazil over the nuclear fuel swap which was concluded on the sidelines of G-15 summit in Tehran has practically put an end to the longstanding standoff surrounding Iran's nuclear program which the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council had artificially turned into an erosive global crisis.

Now, the concerns of France, Germany, United Kingdom and the United States, who over the past 6 years delusively pretended that Iran is after the development of nuclear weapons, are clearly addressed in the Declaration of Tehran and there remains no excuse for them to maintain their confrontational stance and protract the altercation anymore.

According to the agreement, which the majority of Western media outlets embraced traumatically, Iran will ship 1200 kg of its Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) to Turkey for safekeeping and receive 120 kg of 20 percent enriched uranium instead. The 20-percent enriched uranium will be used to warm up a research nuclear reactor in Tehran which aims to produce Technetium-99, a radioisotope which thousands of Iranians suffering from certain types of cancer are in dire need of.

Iran, whose clarity and transparency with regards to its nuclear program had been emphatically highlighted by the IAEA and its former chief Mohamed ElBaradei a number of times, does not possess nuclear weapons whereas all of the permanent members of UNSC who unjustifiably imposed three rounds of tough sanctions against Iran for its civilian nuclear program own enormous stockpiles of nuclear weapons at the same time as being the signatories of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
