NAM Leaders Support Iran

Iran gained enormous prestige.

by Stephen Lendman

After six historic days, over 100 participating nations expressed support for common interests as well as host country Iran. The New York Times said NAM "handed".Iran a diplomatic victory."

The Christian Science Monitor suggested efforts to isolate Iran failed. 

The Russian International News Agency (RIA Novosti) said participants supported Iran and its peaceful nuclear program.

The Tehran Times said "NAM summit set back US-Israeli campaign to isolate Iran."

Press TV called the summit the "most important" political event in the Islamic Republic's history.

Late Friday, the largest, most impressive NAM summit in decades ended. Iran gained prestige. It emerged standing tall. America, Israel, and rogue allies got long overdue black eyes. 

President Mohammed Morsi was Egypt's first leader to visit Iran since its 1979 revolution. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also came for the first time. 

They combined support with criticism. Morsi shamelessly endorsed imperial efforts to topple Assad. Ban regurgitated Israeli lies about Iran allegedly wanting the Jewish state destroyed and denying the holocaust. These canards long ago wore thin.

Ban also called for diplomatically resolving Western/Iranian differences. He said it's "regrettable that Iran has yet to reach agreement with the IAEA on a plan to resolve all outstanding issues." He urged both sides to pursue "a reciprocal, step-by-step process."

Washington and Netanyahu hardliners were duly embarrassed. The summit's success ran counter to their belligerent, isolationist, imperial policies.

At the same time, a strategically timed IAEA report suggested an Iranian threat. None exists. Western and Israeli leaders know it. So does IAEA head Yukiya Amano. He's more pro-Western stooge than honest broker.

The report said Tehran increased its uranium enrichment capacity by 30% since May. It doubled it at its fortified Fordow facility. 

With no evidence whatever proving it, it implied Tehran's moving closer to weapon-grade material. It falsely alleged Iran's Panchin facility conducts nuclear related explosive tests.
