    Intelligence Sources: Rohani Prepared to Shut Down Nuclear Site

    Dunno if Spiegel is considered as MSM or not, but.

    Iranian President Rohani Prepared to Decomission Nuclear Site - SPIEGEL ONLINE

    "...the long-smoldering nuclear dispute with Tehran may be about to take a sensational turn. SPIEGEL has learned from intelligence sources that Iran's new president, Hassan Rohani, is reportedly prepared to decommission the Fordo enrichment plant and allow international inspectors to monitor the removal of the centrifuges. In return, he could demand that the United States and Europe rescind their sanctions against the Islamic Republic, lift the ban on Iranian oil exports and allow the country's central bank to do international business again."

    Meanwhile in Iran... they see an opportunity and try to play their cards as best as they can.

    Cheers,
    Fallen.

    Re: Intelligence Sources: Rohani Prepared to Shut Down Nuclear Site

    I'm inclined not to believe any advancement proposed by any head of government who was not elected in fair and unbiased elections. Nor am I inclined to believe any advancement proposed by a country essentially ruled by a theocracy.

    That said, if it can be confirmed by outside sources and the decommissioning run by outside sources, it may have some promise.

    I'm inclined to believe that Iranian intelligence has heard something from inside Israel that leads them to believe an assault on their facilities is imminent and this is an attempt to freeze out such a move.

    Yup. I believe it's the biggest weekly news magazine in Europe.

    That is absolutely brilliant news! I seriously hope that the US and Europe rescind the sanctions in return. Cheers all around.

    Heya CJ. I would agree. Not only that but Putin is sending Modified S 300's to Iran. With the Promise of building a second reactor Bushehr. Would this second reactor be closer to the other in the use of enrichment? Rather than enriching at Frodo.

    Report: Russia to renew offer to supply s-300s to Iran



    Russian President Vladimir Putin will offer to supply Iran S-300 air defense missile systems as well as build a second reactor at the Bushehr nuclear plant, the Kommersant business daily reported Wednesday.

    Putin will renew an old offer to supply Iran with five of the sophisticated ground-to-air missile systems at a meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rowhani on Friday, Kommersant said, quoting a souce close to the Kremlin.

    Putin is set to meet Rowhani at a summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization held in Kyrgyzstan on Friday.

    The source told Kommersant that Russia’s offer would depend on Iran's withdrawing a $4 billion lawsuit that it has lodged at an international court in Geneva against Russia’s arms export agency.

    Kommersant wrote that Putin would offer to supply Tehran with a modified export version of the S-300 systems called S-300VM Antey-2500.

    The source also said that Putin was ready to sign a deal with Iran on building a second reactor for the Bushehr nuclear plant
    Russia completed the construction of Bushehr, which is Iran’s only functioning nuclear power station, despite protests from Israel and the United States......snip~

    Seems like Iran is always putting out contradictory statements. Kind of like we have been doing recently. Except, their contradictions are strategically motivated to delay and confuse. Even if Rowhani wanted to get relations back on track with the west and open his country back up to a better economic situation, who thinks the Ayatollah would budge?

    Iran getting out of the nuclear arms business sounds like a bit of news just too good to be true, particularly in light of MMC's post above.

    I personally don't share your enthusiasm regarding Iran's nuclear program and the possible future developments on the issue.

    Well, I'm certainly hopeful. President Rohani is also reaching out and meeting with both the UK and Europe.

    Heya SBU. Yeah this was after Iran sent the word about what would happen if we hit Syria. Now this comes along.....they just got done watching us Do the 2-step. So I think they are testing the waters. Hoping they can get someone to make some sort of statement that they can use to come back on.

    As there is no way this Guy has control of Iran and who actually is making the decisions there.
