Time's up for EU

di Hassan Hanizadeh

Iranians finally became tired of the European Unionís blackmail, and the Islamic Republic of Iran announced the end of its deadline for the EU to submit its final proposal on the countryís nuclear program on Monday at 5:00 p.m. Tehran time.

Iranís decision to set a deadline for the EU was in fact a sign of Iraniansí strong determination to make use of their inalienable and legal right to make efforts to develop nuclear technology meant for peaceful purposes.

During the two-year nuclear negotiations between Iran and the EU troika of Germany, Britain, and France, the Europeans proved that they are not honest negotiators and that their main objectives are to kill time and blackmail the Iranian nation.

Over the past two years, the Iranian nuclear negotiators took every kind of measure to prove the countryís goodwill, but it seems that the Europeans are not interested in finding a legal, reasonable solution that can guarantee the legal rights of the Iranian nation.

The holding of numerous meetings, the visit of the EU 3 foreign ministers to Iran and the conclusion of an agreement in October 2003, the constant inspections of Iranís nuclear facilities by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors, and finally Iranís voluntary decision to temporarily suspend uranium enrichment activities were among the measures which could have finalized Iranís nuclear dossier, but, unfortunately, the prolongation of the nuclear talks and the EUís lack of cooperation led to an impasse in the negotiations.

Europeansí acquisitiveness and their efforts to deprive the Iranian nation of civilian nuclear technology were not acceptable for the Iranians under any circumstances, so the Iranian government was obliged to put an end to the current conditions of negotiations.

On the other hand, the Europeans proved that they lack the necessary political will to finalize Iranís nuclear dossier. This is the reason they tried to impose their own conditions on Iran, under the influence of the political viewpoints of the United States and the Zionist regime.

Iranís nuclear dossier was supposed to be finalized in September 2004, but U.S. interference in the negotiating process, as well as the fact that the EU succumbed to the Zionist pressure, prevented the negotiators from reaching an acceptable agreement, which has angered Iranians.

Over the past year, in which Iran has voluntarily suspended all uranium enrichment activities, the Islamic Republic has made determined efforts to demonstrate its good will and commitment to international law to the world, but its efforts not only failed to change the attitude of U.S. and EU officials, but led the Europeans to falsely assume that Iranís measure was a sign of weakness.

In fact, the voluntary suspension of uranium enrichment activities harmed Iranís national prestige and hindered its efforts to develop technology to master the nuclear fuel cycle. Now, the Iranian nation has decided that it will no longer tolerate such a situation.

Parallel to this and concurrently with the Iranian presidential election, certain EU countries, under the tutelage of Zionist propaganda experts, launched a disinformation campaign against Iranian President-Elect Mahmud Ahmadinejad in order to put the Iranian nuclear negotiators on the defensive and to continue their blackmail policy.

Obviously, the Europeans can not continue their stalling policy forever, since the Iranian nation has strong sentiments about its national nuclear program and has become exhausted.

Time is over for Europeís political maneuvers. The Europeans must now review their policies toward regional countries because their current situation is such that they can not even maintain their own domestic security and therefore are in dire need of the cooperation of influential Middle Eastern countries like Iran. Therefore, under the current circumstances and in light of the fact that negotiations have dragged on for two years with no results, Iranís clear message to the EU 3 is: ďTimeís up kids! Hand in your papers!Ē
