EX-IAEA chief exposes US fabrications on Iran nuclear program: Saeb Shaath.

Former IAEA chief Hans Blix remarks to both the US and Israel of the false accusations to Iran that Iran is planning to develop nuclear arms under real scrutiny in here. Since the man is considered a world’s leading expert in the field, after all, he was the former IAEA chief, Hans Blix said there is no evidence to prove Iran is even interested in producing weapons of mass destruction.

An analyst says the former head of IAEA’s confirmation of Iran’s nuclear program as solely for peace exposes US sanctions used as a barbaric tool of war against Iran.

 

In the background of this former IAEA chief Hans Blax has come out and said there is no evidence and has never been evidence that Iran isn’t even interested in producing weapons of mass destruction. He said further that the threat of a nuclear Iran is “over-hyped”. He confirmed that Iran has so far not at all violated the Nuclear Proliferation treaty and therefore no action can be justified against Iran in the form of sanctions, punishment or intimidation based on mere suspicions.

Press TV has interviewed Saeb Shaath, author and Middle East expert, about this issue. The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: If there is so such evidence pointing to the fact that Iran’s nuclear energy program does not have a military dimension to it, then why all the pressure, the sanctions and the allegations? Do you think may be the US and its allies are harboring ulterior motives with their stance?

 

Shaath: Excellent question. Let me summarize it in this way… the former IAEA chief Hans Blix remarks to both the US and Israel of the false accusations to Iran that Iran is planning to develop nuclear arms under real scrutiny in here. Since the man is considered a world’s leading expert in the field, after all, he was the former IAEA chief, Hans Blix said there is no evidence to prove Iran is even interested in producing weapons of mass destruction.

 

He confirms what Iran has been saying all along that its nuclear program is intended solely for peaceful purposes while Israel and the United States are beating their drums of war against Iran.

 

The former chief raised four key points in here:

 

One, he confirmed what we know that Iran never violated the Nuclear non Proliferation Treaty (NPT);

 

Second, he confirmed as well what the Iranian leadership has been saying for years that there is no evidence whatsoever that Iran is interested in producing weapons of mass destruction i.e. nuclear, chemical or biological;

 

The third point is that Iran has been opened to international inspections more than most other countries, which in here he was hinting at Israel in particular;

 

And the fourth key point, which is telling what the whole story is about when he said, no actions can be justified against Tehran, based on mere suspicions.

 

 

So the international expert told us in short that Iran’s civil nuclear program is being targeted by the West and ‘Israeli’  the Zionist entity with total lies and fabrication.

 

 

And why is that? In short, it’s de-development criminal policy as I can  see it, to weaken Iran and the region as well, the only real power in the region Iran, to  be weakend through a combination of imposing crippling sanctions, which hurt the Iranian people first.

 

A combination as well of sabotaging operations targeting key infrastructures in Iran; assassination campaign against Iranian scientists and elite; and political and media demonization campaigns against Iran accusing it of harboring terrorists or being a rogue state.

 

 

Why is that, all together? One,  it is to loot Iran’s  wealth, which was liberated in the Iranian revolution in 1979 from out of the control of the West and Israel; two, the West wants to sure ‘Israel’  as a regional power, as a sort of local or regional power without any balancing  power to counter it or to keep it in check for  all the crimes  against humanity the Zionist entity commits in the Arab world against the Palestinians and in the Islamic world. We notice what they do in Lebanon also.

 

It’s a De Ja Vu actually. What happened in Iraq, they tried to repeat it in Iran. But the difference is massive… Iran learned the lesson.

Iran’s ‘logical path’ to saving JCPOA

Press TV talkes to Dr Saeb Shaath about his take on roadmap that leads the US to return to its commitment and lift the sanctions imposed on Iran.

Tehran has never severed ties with the IAEA

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Tehran is proposing a logical path to the US for its full compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal. Zarif said the United States should first return to the full compliance and then Iran will reciprocate after rapid verification of Washington’s compliance. Zarif also stressed that all sanctions imposed by Former President Donald Trump must be removed. This comes as Iran and the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal end another round of talks aimed at reviving the agreement. More negotiations are set to be held next Wednesday.

Thousands of political prisoners in Bahrain are facing deaths

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation

Saeb Shaath Said “Thousands of political activists, political ‎dissidents, opposition figures, women and even ‎children in Bahraini prisons are facing deaths ‎
cleric …Sheikh Isa Qassim …has warned of that ‎and demanded their immediate release ,,,,,, he ‎called on the Al khalifa regime to choose between ‎the deaths of the dissident inmates and their ‎release…‎

Most of the prisoners were imprisoned as part ‎of a crackdown on a 2011 uprising… they are ‎detained in prisons that are known to be ‎overcrowded and lacking proper sanitation…its ‎done to break the spirt of the activists through ‎dehumanising and humiliation …‎”

Shaath explained

“That is to force them to stop demanding Al ‎Khalifah regime to allow reforms for ‎establishing of a just and fair system that ‎reflects and represents the people interests .‎
On April 6 2020, 21 International ‎human rights organisations among ‎them were Amnesty international and ‎human rights first
‎ called on the Bahraini regime to release ‎all political prisoners ….as the release of ‎‎1,486 prisoners on 17 March 2020 only ‎included 394 prisoners sentenced on ‎political charges….‎
‎While the western governments applause ‎Bahrain’s so called great amnesty .‎”
‎ Saeb Shaath noted that “Most political opponents, activists, ‎human rights defenders, and journalists ‎remain incarcerated.‎
‎ Among them are influential members of ‎Al Wefaq party such as former ‎secretary-general Hassan Mushaima, ‎and Sheikh Ali Salman, ‎
as well as human rights activists ‎Abdulhadi Al Khawaja and Nabeel ‎Rajab”.‎
‎ Shaath added ” the hypocrisy of the west shines by keeping ‎closed eyes over atrocities committed by the ‎Bahraini regime against the prisoners … All ‎are well aware that Bahrain carries out ‎the execution of political prisoners. ‎
Bahraini authorities habitually diluting ‎human rights abuses by sentencing or ‎executing prisoners during holidays or ‎on days of religious celebrations to ‎prevent any reaction from international ‎institutions or media.‎”

Shaath concluded by saying ” Its well documented that the actions of ‎the Bahraini regime violate ‎international law and Bahrain’s ‎international human rights obligations, ‎
including the UN Convention Against ‎Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or ‎Degrading Treatment or Punishment, ‎
the International Covenant on Civil and ‎Political Rights, the International ‎Covenant on Economic, Social, and ‎Cultural Rights along with the Arab ‎Charter of Human Rights “..‎

Who is behind the assassination of Iranian Scientists?

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.”

US officials say Zionist entity “Israel” was behind the assassination: New York Times “One American official — along with two other intelligence officials — said that “Israel” was behind the attack on the scientist,” The New York Times reported on Friday.

Fakhrizadeh’s name was mentioned multiple times in a presentation in 2018 by Zionist entity “Israeli” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during which he repeated baseless claims about the Iranian nuclear program. Netanyahu described the scientist as the director of Iran’s nuclear program and threatened, “Remember that name, Fakhrizadeh.”

The Tel Aviv regime has made several attempts over the past years to throw a wrench in Tehran’s peaceful nuclear work. The regime has been behind the assassination of several Iranian nuclear scientists. It has also conduced cyberattacks on Iranian nuclear sites.

Dmitry Polyanskiy @Dpol_un “That’s a telling analysis from @nytimes reflecting readiness of US establishment to give green light to political extra territorial assasinations. Not a thing to boast for a democratic country! #Iran #Fakhrizadeh”.

“NYT summarizes the “chilling message” that “American officials” want to send to Iranian top nuclear scientists with today’s assassination: “If we can get him, we can get you, too.” Indistinguishable from Mafia talk.” @aaronjmate .

The senior Iranian defense official was assassinated near the capital Tehran in a terrorist attack. In a statement, the Defense ministry said the vehicle of the head of the Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was targeted by terrorists.

The Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif said the act of cowardice shows the desperate warmongering of its perpetrators adding that there are serious indications of an Israeli role in the assassination. Zarif also urged the international community, especially the EU, to end QUOTE “their shameful double standards and condemn the Iranian defense official’s assassination.

Between 2010 and 2012, four other Iranian nuclear scientists were assassinated. Tehran and western intelligence agencies have long put the blame on Zionist entity “Israel”, an accusation that was never rejected by officials of the Israeli regime.
