Iran Nuclear Talks


Iran's nuclear program is a red herring. Common knowledge it's peaceful.

by Stephen Lendman

On April 14 and 15, Istanbul will host so-called P5+1 countries. They include the five permanent Security Council members - America, Russia, China, Britain, and France - plus Germany. 

According to Iran's chief nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, Baghdad will host more talks at a mutually agreed on date.

With Iran, they'll discuss the Islamic Republic's nuclear program. Holding talks at all should be challenged. Tehran's program is peaceful. It's entitled to develop it like dozens of other nations. They're not pressured to talk or halt legitimate activities.

Why Iran? The issue's a red herring. The real one's regime change. Pretexts are used to pursue it. If not one, then another. If none exist, they're invented. Washington wants Tehran's government replaced by a pro-Western one.

Iran wants its sovereignty respected. It wants peace, not confrontation and conflict. It threatens no one. Its nuclear program is nonmilitary. US intelligence, IAEA inspectors, and Israel's Mossad said so. Nonetheless, false accusations persist. Expect no Istanbul resolution. Washington won't tolerate it.
