Iran: US “Fact Sheet” Full of Lies.


Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Thursday demanded that all sanctions on Iran be lifted as soon as a final agreement with world powers on curbing Tehran’s nuclear program was concluded. In a live speech on Iranian state television, Khamenei said he neither backed nor rejected an interim accord reached between Iran and the powers last week.

He said that Its details would be decisive, and that the publication of a US fact sheet showing terms that ran counter to the Iranian view of the agreement showed “devilish” US intentions. He said

“I neither support nor oppose it, everything is in the details; it may be that the deceptive other side wants to restrict us in the details.”

“The White House put out a statement just a few hours after our negotiators finished their talks … this statement, which they called a ‘fact sheet,’ was wrong on most of the issues.”

The tentative accord, reached on April the 2nd after eight days of talks in Switzerland, clears the way for a settlement to allay Western “fears” that Iran could build an atomic bomb, with economic sanctions on Tehran being lifted as a result. -

Khamenei stated again that Iran had no intention of building a nuclear weapon. It should be noted that Israel, Iran’s staunchest critic on the matter, probably has one already.

He added that “what has been achieved so far does not guarantee a deal or even that the negotiations will continue to the end.”

“I was never optimistic about negotiating with America … nonetheless I agreed to the negotiations and supported, and still support, the negotiators.”

He said he supported a deal that preserved the “interests and honor” of Iran and that an extension of a June 30 deadline should not matter. Iran is right to be concerned about the manner in which the US chooses to explain this agreement to the world. Should America choose to portray the deal as one where Iran has to do a number of things that were not actually depicted in the actual agreement, and Iran refuses to do these things that it had never agreed to do, the US could claim that Iran had reneged on the agreement, and impose even stricter sanctions.

For example, Saddam Hussein had agreed to allow UN WMD inspectors to survey the country on several occasions, to allay US “fears” of him acquiring nukes. Their findings were as follows:

Based on more than a hundred visits to suspect sites and private interviews with a number of individual scientists known to have been involved with WMD programs in the past, ElBaradei stated that the IAEA had “to date found no evidence or plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapons programme in Iraq” and predicted that the agency should be able to provide that Security Council with an objective and thorough assessment of Iraq’s nuclear related capabilities “in the near future.”

Yet Bush went in anyway…. And the MSM reported that the invasion was to prevent Saddam from acquiring nukes… Which suggests that a healthy suspicion of American promises is to be expected, particularly when both parties “seem” to have a different interpretation of the same deal, particularly if the US’s version gets all the mainstream coverage…

  1. I’m not a big fan of mass-destruction but in my opinion any country which has the financial and strategic capabilities of arming herself is to be allowed. Why? Well, USA has the power and does exactly what USA wants everywhere in the world, for example, in Romania at Deveselu they build an anti-missile defense system which makes Russia nervous. USA is to “everywhere”, nothing against US gov or people but the bad things are not always coming from middle east or European countries. This is my opinion, I may be wrong but it’s mine 🙂

  2. Well, Iran does say Death to America and Death to Israel a lot, so I imagine the concern with letting Iran have weapons of mass destruction might be for a lack of trust…..
