Iranians Make Obama Ridiculous and a Liar: „We Go on Enriching Uranium as up to now”!

[1] The Daily Mail 27 Nov. 2013Iranian officials claimed on Tuesday that the Obama administration concocted a [2] fact sheet on a landmark nuclear agreement that doesn’t match what they endorsed over the weekend

On Saturday evening the White House said in a statement that Western nations and Iran had ‘reached a set of initial understandings that halts the progress of Iran’s nuclear program and rolls it back in key respects.’

President Obama delivered an address 17 minutes later, announcing that under the agreement, ‘Iran cannot use its next-generation centrifuges, which are used for enriching uranium.’ He also said the Islamic republic ‘will halt work at its plutonium reactor (Arak).’

This agreement that has just been signed mentions that Iran is fully entitled to the right of enrichment and it will never quit its rights in the future,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the following day in Geneva.
He said Wednesday that the White House misrepresented the Geneva negotiations.

On Tuesday Abbas Araqchi, Iran’s top nuclear negotiator told Trend magazine in Azerbaijan that ‘Iran’s uranium enrichment right cannot be granted or limited by another countries.’

And Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, insisted on Monday that the Geneva accord won’t affect operations at his nation’s major nuclear sites.

‘Work at the Arak reactor will continue,‘ Salehi said. ‘[Uranium] enrichment to 5 percent will continue. Research and development will continue. All our exploration and extraction activities will continue. There are no activities that won’t continue.”

[3] Netanyahu condmns iran agreementBinyamin Netanyahu seems to have been partly right as he called the Iran enrichment agreement a historical mistake. The fact is that it was a historical lie made by Pres, Obama - or Iran.

He announced on Tuesday that Iran’s enrichment program will actually increase, and added that construction of the heavy-water reactor at Arak – which the U.S. believes is one component of a plutonium production facility – will continue as before

Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday that ‘there is no right to enrich’ uranium in the Geneva agreement. ‘We do not recognize a right to enrich.’
Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani began distancing himself from the White House almost immediately, saying that ‘our [uranium] enrichment activities will continue as before’

[5] Reuters 27 Nov. 2013 - Iran will pursue construction at the Arak heavy-water reactor, Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif was quoted as saying on Wednesday. Zarif says the Iranians will go on building the structure of the heavy water plant of Arak - but not install the technics. Critics say they can be produced elsewhere and quickly installed.
Western powers fear Arak could be a source of plutonium

Asked to react to Iran’s claim that the White House changed key elements of the agreement for public consumption, the speaker said ‘I don’t have any particular response to these reports.’

Zarif-kerry

In exchange for Iran’s now-disputed concessions, the U.S. has agreed to release as much as $7 billion in capital that was previously part of crippling economic sanctions, largely in the form of oil revenue..

The White House’s fact sheet – the same one Iran now calls illegitimate – said it would also lift ‘certain sanctions on gold and precious metals, Iran’s auto sector, and Iran’s petrochemical exports.’

It is no secret that Riyadh is very upset with the final product, as well as the process that produced it. The British leftist Guardian  states that “Saudi Arabia feels double-crossed and is determined to contest a resurgent Iran.”
