Iran Nuclear Talks
13 noviembre, 2013
Iran’s claim for nuclear power has been for very long in their interest. What is interesting to us is the evolution and their reasons for such interest, which for most of the world is for offensive means against other countries, while for some is just a way to grow and develop Iran.
For two decades Iran has been in efforts to acquire capability in building nuclear weapons. uranium enrichment, warhead design, and delivery systems are between the technologies developed by them. They depend on Tehran to make the final decision, who says that the intentions are entirely peaceful.
This kind of discussion has for long being going. Iran stated its first nuclear reactor in 1967, which was supplied by the U.S. with five-megawatt Tehran Research Reactors. In 1974 Iran establishes the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and the construction of 23 nuclear power plants and the development of a full nuclear fuel cycle.
Afterwards, in 1984 the U.S. Department of State adds Iran to its list of state sponsors of terrorism. Examples like this show the increasing pressure on top of Iran and its attempts at production of nuclear energy.
We can say that division difference for Iran change the whole understanding about nuclear talks. This is mainly because the new government more talkative when it comes to Western relations. Even the talks about nuclear power in Geneva moving at least twice as quickly as previous talks. This situation is mainly because both Abbas Araqchi (Iran’s deputy foreign minister) and Mohammad Javad Zarif (foreign minister) can speak English fluently.
Of course some of the countries don’t back up this ‘’talks’’ between Iran and Western countries. Israel is one of them and the most rejecting state. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he ‘’utterly rejected’’ such a deal with Iran mainly because Iran is long-time enemy of Iran. And officials suspecting that Israel may take military action to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program.
This sensitive relationship between Iran and Western countries relies on a trust between each other. Both sides need to trust each other. As EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton said; “To get to a comprehensive agreement is very, very difficult with highly technical issues that have to be resolved. We are looking for a confidence-building step that will put some time on the clock,” she said. “The aim is to rebuild trust … to constrain the program and even take it back a notch.”
