Nuclear

By Reza Shafiee

Iran's mullahs will stop at nothing to get their hands on nuclear weapons to spread terror.

 Just look at how broad the evidence is.Secretary of State Rex Tillerson in his letter to House speaker Paul Ryan on April 19 said that although Iran is meeting the terms of 2015 nuclear deal with Obama administration and five other world powers, "Iran remains a leading state sponsor of terror through many platforms and methods."

WASHINGTON — An Iranian resistance group claimed Friday that the Iranian regime has expanded its efforts to build nuclear weapons.

The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said at press conference that the Iranian government has covered up research activities so that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) can’t examine it. Alireza Jafarzadeh, deputy director of the Washington office of the NCRI, said the information was obtained by the People’s’ Mojahedin Organization of Iran (MEK), which procured it from onsite observations and sources inside the Iranian government.

he White House responded cautiously Friday to claims by an Iranian dissident group alleging that Iran’s clandestine work on a nuclear weapon has continued unabated by the landmark nuclear deal that Tehran finalized with the Obama administration and five other world powers two years ago.At a news conference in Washington, members of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) brandished recent satellite imagery and intelligence purportedly derived from informants inside the Iranian military to bolster their claim that the Islamic Regime is still working covertly on what nuclear experts call weaponization: the final station on the path to nuclear weapons.

There are many reasons to believe that the Iranian regime would seek nuclear weapons despite the weak and porous agreement it signed with world powers in 2015. The latest manifestation of this reality is the revelations made by National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which pertain to Tehran continuing its bomb-building efforts despite its explicit commitments to the international community.

Washington, DC, April 19 -

Through information received from the Mujahedin-e Khalq (PMOI/MEK) network within Iran, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has obtained critical and reliable intelligence on the latest status of the Iranian regime’s nuclear bomb-making apparatus.

The U.S. Representative Office of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI-US) will hold a press conference on Friday, April 21, 2017, at 10:30 am at the Willard Room, the Willard InterContinental Hotel (1401 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC), to unveil the details including locations, satellite imagery, and key players involved.

Just one day after the State Department officially notified Congress of Iran complying with its commitments based on the nuclear deal, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's latest remarks caught Tehran by surprise.The nuclear accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, has failed to quell Iran's capability and willpower to develop nuclear weapons,

Institute for Science and International Security - March 23, 2017 - In June 2016, the Department of Justice and the Eastern District of New York announced the guilty plea of a U.S. citizen of Turkish descent, Erdal Kuyumcu, 44, of Woodside, New York, on a charge of conspiring to sell to Iran specialized metallic powder composed of cobalt and nickel and applicable in nuclear and missile programs.

Kuyumcu was arrested in March 2016. From January 2013 until February 2015, Kuyumcu, who was CEO of the U.S. company Global Metallurgy, acted as an intermediary for an unidentified Iranian procurement agent and an unidentified Turkish representative who owned an unidentified company based in Turkey to procure metallic powder and deceive U.S. suppliers about its end destination.

The Islamic Republic doesn’t need to cheat to get the bomb. Indeed, it has every incentive to hope that the deal is enforced.

WSJ- March 22, 2017 - President Donald Trump promised to rigorously and radically enforce the Iran nuclear agreement, which he called “the worst deal ever negotiated.” It sounds tough, but it’s an approach that plays into the hands of the Iranian mullahs.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action presents the Trump administration with a bedeviling paradox: The greater the focus on enforcement, the higher the likelihood Iran will emerge with nuclear weapons.

REUTERS - Mar 17, 2017 -  Iran has challenged the need for it to ship sensitive material abroad if its stock exceeds a limit set by its nuclear deal with major powers.

The challenge raises the prospect of a confrontation with the new U.S. administration of President Donald Trump because diplomats say Iran is only months away from reaching that cap.

The 2015 deal restricts Iran's atomic activities in exchange for the lifting of sanctions against Tehran.
