Uranium Enrichment in Iran Raises Concerns
Claims of uranium enrichment in Iran took a beating as the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), an Iranian opposition group, exposed the country’s continuous nuclear programs operated from underground tunnels, where radiation-proof doors prevent leaks away from the eyes of the United Nations International Energy Agency inspectors.
“There is no way in the world you can assure Tehran is not developing nuclear weapons if you can’t inspect those sites, especially if you are talking about a regime that has over two decades of a track record of lying and cheating and deceiving the whole world,” said Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the NCRI’s Washington office.
The revelation points out no reason to believe Iranian Mullahs have plans to put to rest Iran’s aspiration for nuclear weapons, according to Soona Samsami, NCRI’s representative for the United States.
“Any delay in doing so will enable the Iranian regime to destroy the evidence as it has done in the past,” Samsami claimed.
There are deep concerns in the US bench. Secretary of State John Kerry has taken up the issue with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a meeting over the weekend in Geneva.
The concerns of the NCRI are forthcoming, claiming Tehran “has been continuing to lie for more than a decade and has deceived the world community. Research and Development with advanced centrifuges in highly secret sites are only intended to advance the nuclear weapons project. While the regime deceived the world into believing that it had halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003, it had been, in fact, heavily involved in excavating tunnels and preparing this nuclear site from 2004 to 2008. It has clearly lied.”
Although Kerry claimed Iran’s nuclear proliferation will be stopped at any cost, NCRI is never skeptical about a possible nuclear-armed Iran, which has not complied with orders from six United Nation Security Council resolutions to suspend uranium enrichment.
The Mullahs, with profound influence on Iran’s national and international policies, have every chance to dupe the international community if any concessions are extended, said NCRI leader Maryam Rajavi.
