Russian Diplomat Stands Up for Iran as the Collective West Continues Regime Change Efforts Against It

Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya announced that Russia will be rejecting attempts to deny Iran the right to run its nuclear power generation program under the purview of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in a peaceful manner. 

The Russian ambassador said to the UN Security Council session on non-proliferation that a specific cohort of countries was intentionally creating a misleading image of the Iran-IAEA relationship.

“Our Western colleagues continue to speculate about the discovery of uranium enriched up to 83.7 % at one of Iranian facilities. What they prefer not to mention is that reports of the Secretary-General, 2231 Facilitator, and IAEA Director-General clearly say that this issue has been resolved,” Nebenzya stated.

“We strongly reject any such attempts to manipulate objective data, and equally all attempts to dispute Iran’s right to explore and develop atoms for peace under the IAEA supervision,” he added. “We are very interested in a calm and trustful development of relations between Iran and the Agency.”

Nebenzya continued by noting that the international community obtains all facts concerning the state of Iran’s nuclear program  from the reports provided by the Director-General of the IAEA.

“As soon as full-fledged implementation of the JCPOA [Iran Nuclear Deal] resumes, the Additional Protocol to the Safeguards Agreement will be in effect again. All responsible states should facilitate rather than impede this process,” the Russian diplomat stated.

Whether or not Iran will use its nuclear program for solely civilian purposes or give it a military twist, is a topic for great debate. One thing is clear though: Nuclear power = vehicle for energy sovereignty. 

A country that can’t go nuclear in either civilian or military term is one that is no longer sovereign. At best, it’s a geopolitical plaything for other countries to exploit. For that reason, one can’t blame Iran for potentially pursuing nukes.
