Zarif: Iran to continue centrifuge research in final agreement as well; US wakes up from dream of zero enrichment

Monday, 3 February 2014

Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is attending the Munich Security Conference, said in an interview with Reuters, that Iran will not be willing to abandon its centrifuge research as part of the final agreement with the West. Zarif said: we are supposed to discuss various aspects of the nuclear program, and I do not believe that technology and knowledge is related to the nuclear bomb. When asked what he expects from the round of talks scheduled to take place on February 18th, Zarif said, “We are only at the start of the road to achieving the final agreement and these talks are expected to last a certain period.”  In our perspective, however, it is not so difficult to reach a final agreement as long as all parties demonstrate good will and seriousness. Zarif also said that during his stay in Munich that the Munich conference is a good opportunity to clarify Iran’s position and present the right picture of the Iranian nuclear program. The Iranian FM also met with his American counterpart, John Kerry on the sidelines of the Munich conference. Link to a panel on Iran  Mohamad Javad Zarif, Carl Bildt (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kingdom of Sweden and one of the 4 pepole Zaridf follows on his twitter account….), Dr. Yukiya Amano (IAEA Director General), Christopher Murphy (Senator, Member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, United States of America). Moderator: Wolfgang Ischinger (Ambassador, Chairman, Munich Security Conference). Zarif said that sanction only added more centrifuges (18800…) and resentment; Iranians want most of all “respect and dignity” and elected Rouhani to engage in constructive dialogue with its neighbors and the international arena.

The US has waken from the dream of zero enrichment. Iran encountered a wall in the form of resistance to provide it with nuclear technology and was forced to do so while relying on its historical-cultural depth, reviewing the various existing narratives and not limit its gains throughout the negotiations. Iran has a deep distrust of the West and the West must work hard to earn it back again…A balanced solution must be found. An unbalanced solution will not work…within these confines, the relationship with the West should be repaired….this is a historic opportunity to do so and wake up from illusions…
