The 35-nation board of the U.N. nuclear watchdog has imposed a new resolution on Iran last day, demanding that the country allow the agency's inspectors to visit the disputed military base Parchin, which has been suspected on conducted nuclear-related test and to make full cooperation with IAEA.
With regarding the fact that among 35 Governor Board members only Cuba voted against, this is quiet hard signal for isolated Iran to budge.
About a half of Governor Board members are also have member or observer status in Non-Aligned Movement whit Iran's presidency, including Chile, China, India, Argentina, Saudi Arabia, United Arabic Emirate, Ecuador, Brazil, Egypt, Tunisia, Singapore, Jordan, South Africa, Tanzania and Niger. Tehran who hosted 16-th NAM summit with participation of about 10,000 guests in late August, has repeatedly announced about its "diplomatic victory" to form strong allies who supported Iran's nuclear activities.
This is IAEA's 12th resolution against Iran since 2003, demanding Iran to make transparency in its nuclear activities.
Every country has its own priority, interest and policy, and then Iran should never count upon Russia, China or NAM group. Iran's nuclear program is not only a power of nation, eco-politic project, but it is a card in Tehran's hand to make big deal with West, especially with its major enemy the U.S., aimed to force them to compromise against Iran's geopolitical policy and pay guarantee for Ayatollahs' dominated regime.
With regarding this fact, I think, neither IAEA resolution, nor UN Sectary Council and West's bilateral sanctions can curb Iran's nuclear ambitions. The West should pay more attention to Iranian Government's essential and principal interests.
Iranian government who has lost a half of its oil ravenous during last months, its barrels exports has decreased from 2.3 to 1.1 and faced problems to connect with international banking system, devaluation in national currency (USD rate increased from 10.400 rials to 25.000 rials during 18 months) has demonstrated insistence over its ambitions. The situation is very dangerous, namely the necessity of military strike on Iran's nuclear facilities is going to be highlighted.
