France never stopped doing business with an emerging nuclear Iran. President Sarkozy keeps on criticizing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his Holocaust denial. But who gave Iran nuclear technology in the first place?
French President Nicolas Sarkozy issued Wednesday a strong condemnation of new remarks from Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad denying the Holocaust. He told Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki during a meeting in Paris that such comments were «unacceptable and profoundly shocking».
What might be equally shocking, is that France has been an instrument of providing the nuclear regime in Teheran with both technology and finances enough to create a nuclear bomb.
As late as 1991, an agreement was found for the French-Iranian disagreement based on the Iranian revolution in 1979. France refunded more than 1.6 billion dollars to Iran. Iran even remained shareholder of Eurodif via Sofidif, a Franco-Iranian consortium shareholder to 25 per cent of Eurodif.
Who is Eurodif?
This joint company in operating a uranium enrichment plant in France. Eurodif was formed in 1973 by France, Belgium, Spain and Sweden. In 1975 Sweden’s 10 per cent share in Eurodif went to Iran as a result of an arrangement between France and Iran.
When France could not longer be directly involved in the Iranian nuclear program, the newly free Russian Federation took over. In 1995, Iran signed a contract with Russia to resume work on the partially-complete Bushehr plant installing into the existing Bushehr I building. Bushhr I contains a 915MWe VVER-1000 pressurized water reactor. The completion of this reactor is expected in 2009.
The new US President Obama is under pressure from his own Oil and Energy industry to struck a peace deal with Iran.
Because, it was the US who gave Iran Nuclear technology in the first place, back in the early 1960-ties.
No one predicted that this nuclear program in Teheran one day would be governed by an Iranian President, that publicly says he will destroy Israel.
But who do really care?
In his speech in Cairo, President Barakh Hussein Obama started the process of overlooking the Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Obama gave us this new policy statement:
«Any nation, including Iran, should have the right to access peaceful nuclear power if it complies with its responsibilities under the nuclear non-proliferation treaty».
The day before Obama spoke in Cairo, President Ahmadinejad gave the following public statement home in Iran:
«The identity of the liberal democracy has been exposed to the world by its protection of the most criminal regime in the history of humanity, the Zionist regime, by using the big deception of the Holocaust».
Too much is at risk. Israel has to be sacrificed to save the Global economy. As of late 2002, Iran held 90 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, or roughly 9 per cent of the world’s total.
Patricia Marie is a spokeswoman for Total, the French controlled global oil giant. On 11th of juli 2008, Patricia Marie told us the truth in New York Times, about the coming end of sanctions against Iran, through a sudden: «peace deal in our time».
«Total would seek to return to Iran when tensions eased», though she said she could offer no timetable. “National Iranian Oil Company is a long-term partner of Total in Iran. Our strategy has not changed.”
