Geneva (AFP) – Diplomats from major powers and Iran resumed on Wednesday delicate discussions on the Iranian nuclear program, in an atmosphere of “lost confidence” by Iranian negotiators in Geneva while since Tehran, Supreme Leader launched a charge against Israel and its “support”.
The French President, Francois Hollande, has reacted strongly, saying that “Iran must provide answers and not provocation.”
Sign or not this crisis of confidence? The unique plenary meeting between Iran and the major powers of the 5 +1 group (the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany) was completed after less than 10 minutes late Wednesday after afternoon at the UN in Geneva.
“It was a brief introductory session,” said a diplomat. Bilateral meetings continued in the evening. The Iranians have first met the Russian delegation, then they saw the European countries and ended with the U.S. delegation, said the Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, quoted by the ISNA news agency.
While rather optimistic statements were made in recent days by the different parties on the “possibility” of an agreement, the Iranians said Wednesday he was “regain lost confidence,” the negotiator Abbas Aragchi.
In the previous round of negotiations, from 6 to 9 November in Geneva agreement had a moment seemed very close, but the draft was cured, especially at the request of France, and negotiators were finally separated without concluding.
“So far we have progressed according to plan and we agreed to start serious and detailed discussions on a final agreement with Lady Ashton tomorrow” Thursday, Zarif said in comments published on his Facebook page after lunch with the head of the diplomacy European.
A few hours before the resumption of talks, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has called the debate and put pressure on the negotiation by setting “red lines” and repeating that his country would not back down on its “nuclear rights “.
“I insist on the consolidation of nuclear rights of Iran,” Khamenei said in a speech broadcast live on television, emphasizing the “red lines” of its nuclear program, which include the enrichment of uranium on Iranian soil and the refusal to close the underground enrichment site at Fordo.
Especially, the guide comes to a violent charge against Israel, already accused yesterday by Iran of being behind the double suicide bombing against the Iranian embassy in Beirut, claimed by Al-Qaeda.
Israel is “doomed to extinction,” he told Khamenei, accused the “Zionist regime” to be “the real threat” to the world. He also launched into a diatribe against the “support” of Israel “from Europe are rushing to go to the Zionist leaders – which is a shame to call them human – to flatter,” a clear reference to visit François Hollande earlier this week in Israel.
Paris, which displays an uncompromising position on the Iranian nuclear issue, has been charged, including Iran, have scuppered the previous round of negotiations in Geneva.
The “unacceptable” statements Khamenei “complicated negotiation” in Geneva, responded immediately to the Paris-government spokesman, Najat Belkacem-Vallaud.”It is true that the proposals of Mr. Khamenei can not go in the direction of healing and understanding. So Iran should provide answers and no provocations,” said the French president.
Netanyahu in MoscowIsraeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who arrived in emergency in Moscow, tried to convince President Vladimir Putin of the danger of a compromise with Iran.
“We would all like a diplomatic solution, but it must be a real solution,” Netanyahu said during a press conference at the Kremlin, adding that meant for Iran to stop uranium enrichment and centrifuges work in the same manner as permitted Syria chemical destruction of its arsenal.
As for Putin, he expressed the hope that a “mutually acceptable” solution will be found quickly in Geneva.The United States will not accept agreement with that would be a way for Tehran to “buy time” in order to develop its nuclear capabilities, warned again to Washington Secretary of State, John Kerry .
The negotiations stumbled mainly on the future of the stock of uranium already enriched to 20%, easily transformable into weapons-grade uranium enriched to 90%, on the future of high-performance centrifuges 1000, the heavy water plant under construction in Arak capable of producing plutonium, another way to access the nuclear bomb.
