World powers to issue joint statement ahead of new nuclear talks with Iran

World powers who agreed to resume nuclear talks with Tehran are set Thursday to issue a joint statement outlining concerns about Iran's enrichment of uranium at underground facilities, a diplomat told CNN.

The proposed talks come after Iran signaled a willingness to let U.N. inspectors visit a military base that some suspect is involved in the development of nuclear weapons, a move that could possibly ratchet down rising tensions between Iran, Israel and the West.

Israel, the United States and other countries have long said they suspect Iran is trying to build nuclear weapons, and international inspectors have voiced concern about the possibility. Iran has insisted that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.

In the statement to the International Atomic Energy Agency, the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council - the United States, France, Britain, China and Russia - as well as Germany are expected to call for inspectors to return to Tehran, according to the diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

  1. The World Knows about Isreal

    Many of the worlds peopleTHINK that Iran MIGHT be making nukes, while others KNOW that Israel does so illegally. The only thing keeping The World from dragging Israel to justice is the fact that those who believe Israel is God's chosen nation have the biggest guns. If the world were the true democracy US troops are spreading, Israel would be vanquished...not by her enemies...but by Justice.

  2. Did you know?

    Are you aware of the fact that about 3/4ths of Israel's citizens truly believe that Israel is God's chosen nation? And that roughly 3/4ths of US citizens agree with those who deny Jesus?

    One is a great big American Bulldog, and the other is one of those little barky dogs. Imagine the look on the little barky dog's face when it turns around one day to see that the Big Dog isn't there. How loud would Israel bark (saber rattle) if not for US? Tail between legs more likely.

    Two ' Western' diplomats raised concerns about the activities at Parchin according to CNN this morning. Which countries these diplomats belong has not been mentioned.
    The bruhaha continues. Iraq all over again.

    @ Two Dogs
    Rather crude. But not that off the mark

    Irony is that those countries who refused to sign NPT – India, Pakistan and Israel and are sitting on their cache of nukes are exempt from inspections or in two cases even mention of their nukes.

    Name one country on this planet which will gladly throw open the doors to its military installations for all & sundry to come in and see what is going on, including those who are lined up against that country?

    @Saywhat. The International Atomic Energy Agency regularly inspects anything nuclear around the world. Obviously not in Israel or in any unknown secret weapons facilities, or known ones that are kept unknown for reasons of national security. Perhaps Iran has a few Area 51's like the US and Russia do. Like some crystal meth heads do. he he. Tweeker microcosm. Meth being the bomb, Contact cold capsules the enriched uranium.

    One Big Dog was a former president who died, and the little barky dog that replaced him is the other. Harry S. Truman himself was unaware that the USA had nuclear capacity until AFTER he became president. (he then wasted little time pulling the trigger on the shiny new gun he found) So don't go telling me that president Obama knows exactly whats going on at US secret military installations. Particularly those where nazi weapons facilities were dismantled and installed underground here in the USA. If you haven't seen what flies out of those places with your own eyes, you, or even president Obama, has no way of knowing for sure. Me? I've seen 6 flying saucers fly-out of Cheyenne Mountain (old NORAD installation) with my own eyes. Don't tell me of your conspiracy theory.

  10. Two Flying Saucers

    The German-made 1937 BMW model J-38 powered by 12 jet engines. And the Chekoslovakian made Skoda H. (after Germany occupied the Checs, the Skoda facility was revamped for flying saucer production) Of course Russians and Americans captured this advanced technology along with the thousands of men who developed it. Where do you think Russians and Americans got their jet engine technology? Only the Nazis had jets, and only the nazis had flying saucers until AFTER the war. After the war, flying sauvers began being reported all over Russia and the USA...thousands of sightings each and every year since after WW2.

  11. Two Flying Saucers

    The next phony the Cold War. Like the War on Drugs. Like the War on Terror...will be One World Military vs. Manmade Flying Saucers said to be of alien origin. We already have a One World Government running the worlds economies. One single group of Iluminati Freemasons control all of the worlds federal reserves, and won't even allow US to audit them. International borders fell for profit long ago. In the near future, they will fall for invading "aliens". And you probably will too. Some Americans were even fooled by a stupid radio show about invading saucers. Imagine if it were announced by the worlds leaders. You people would freak.

  12. Two Flying Saucers

    ...I would explain what powered the Skoda H model flying saucer, but it's a bit complicated. It weighed 40,000 lbs (we know this from evidence recovered from the Skoda facility, namely Bills of Lading showing actual numbers of saucers produced, and what they each weighed) But weight is of no consequence if you generate your own gravitational field. Even today scientists will tell you that there is no technology that can do this. They lie, or are duped. Tesla's free energy is lab proven, and Nazis used it to power the H. Youtube has many videos showing actual film footage of nazi saucers being built, inspected, and flown in Germany even before WW2. You THINK flying saucers are alien but cannot PROVE they are. While it has been SOUNDLY proven manmade flying saucers are real.

  13. Two Flying Saucers

    Imagine two flying saucers. One is having it's very last part installed before it's maiden voyage. The same old flag-waving American has been making that part for over 30 years, and he still doesn't know where it goes on a flying saucer. The other imaginary saucer is flying overhead as people flee in terror. A tiny little beam of light emits from the saucer, and pinpoints a cars gas tank. (zoom-in...with a microscope) That little beam of free energy wants to ignite the gasoline, but it can't. So it ignites the tiny bit of ethanol your government requires to be added to gas instead. Boom. Ditto bio-diesel. Badda Boom. "Save us from the aliens!!! Even if it means burning our flags and flushing our patriotism, we'll go along with a One World Government military for protection. Give US a Patriot Act for War on Terror. Victory Act for War on Invading Aliens!!!(no offense Mexico)

    I have seen some exceptionally good fake viodes on youtube recently, and some of them may be not-fake. The reason for the lack of "concrete" evidence is that the aliens have the superhuman intelligence and technology to limit their exposure, tamper with witnesses and the whole nine yards. These points are completely lost on the wave of skeptics that rise up to nay-say every time someone asks this question. For those who cling to the freedom to disbelieve, the skeptics are there for them. Like other witnesses, all I can tell you is that "these eyes have seen." Also, the aliens are evil but limited by something more powerful than themselves from hurting people however they wish. I hope one day we have the technology to travel space and meet some aliens that are worth meeting, as opposed to what is showing up in our skies these days.References : Was this answer helpful?
