Experts not Exclude Reduction in Tension in Iran’s Nuclear Program
Azerbaijan, Baku, 17 January /corr. Trend D.Khatinoglu / "It is not excluded that the tension with regards to Iran's nuclear plans, will decrease," the experts said.
The report by the US intelligence bureau in December 2007 said that Iran has stopped the plans on nuclear weapons production since 2003. Muhammad al-Baredi, the Head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, also positively assessed the discussions on the nuclear issue which were held with the Iranian officials on 12 January. In addition, Iran promised to reply to the questions of the IAEA within the 40 days.
Treit Parsi, the Professor of Yale University, reported to Trend by telephone from Washington on 17 January, that he believes that the UN Security Council will return the pack of Iran's nuclear weapons to the IAEA. "If Iran fulfills the promises made to the IAEA, it will not sustain the sanctions from the US Security Council," she said.
Till now, the UN Security Council has passed two resolutions against Tehran because of the continuation of the plans on uranium enrichment. However, Iran approached them slightly.
Izzet Izzeti, another Iranian politician, chairman of the Geo-political Association, reported to Trend if the third resolution is adopted against Iran, it will not be keen. " China and Russia will oppose toughening up of the items of the resolution," Izzeti said.
The UN Security Council demanded Iran to stop the uranium enrichment. Despite that the Council passed the two resolutions against Iran, Tehran did not stop the nuclear program. On 22 Jan, the adoption of the third resolution will be discussed in Berlin. Germany, France and USA want the resolution to be keener, but China and Russia oppose it. Discussions will take place, to pass the sanctions with regards to the Iranian banks Sadirat and Milli.
