Paris Agreement Iran 2004

[22] Diploweb website: The agreement could introduce a significant change in Iran`s relations with Europe and much of the international community, said iranian delegation spokesman Hussein Mousavian. [16] EEAS website: 18-24 November 2014: Iran and the P5-1 meet in Vienna to continue negotiations for a comprehensive agreement. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will attend the November 20 talks. French Foreign Minister Fabiusu, British Foreign Minister Hammond and German Foreign Minister Steinmeier will participate in the talks from 20 to 22 November. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov arrives on 23 November and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang arrives on 24 November. On the other hand, the official reaction of the White House expressed a conciliatory tone towards the resolution. White House spokesman Scott McClellan said the agreement was welcome and stressed the critical importance of implementation and revision: “Over time, we will see if Iran is committed to fully fulfilling its commitments.” [11] Mr. McClellan drew on Ambassador Sanders` assertion that the United States could request that the matter be referred to the Security Council, adding that in the event of an infringement, “the matter is notified to IAEA members to consider additional measures.” [12] 24 August 2004: Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi said in Wellington, New Zealand, that Iran will retaliate by force from Israel or any nation that attempts a pre-emptive attack on its nuclear program. Earlier in the week, Israel`s Chief of Staff, General Moshe Ya`alon, told an Israeli newspaper: “Iran aspires to nuclear capability, and I suggest that [Israel] does not count on others in this matter.” Given the need to secure Iran`s agreement on the suspension of its enrichment and reprocessing activities and Iran`s assistance in resolving outstanding issues concerning Iran`s nuclear program, the latest resolution adopts a conciliatory tone with Iran to encourage continued cooperation. Iranian leaders expressed satisfaction with the leniency of the terms of the resolution. Before the resolution`s vote, Iran`s chief negotiator, Hossein Moussavian, said the draft resolution was “undoubtedly the most positive presented to the IAEA Governing Council since the beginning of the Iranian nuclear crisis.” [6] [4] The Guardian website: 24 September 2005: IAEA Board of Governors finds that the breaches and violations reported in November 2003 constitute a breach of Iran`s security agreement. [18] Whether Iran is proven to be complying with the suspension agreement or not, the Paris Agreement does little to allay long-term concerns that Iran will not only develop the capacity to manufacture nuclear weapons, but will use that capability in defiance of its non-proliferation obligations.
