      French diplomat says six key nations likely to issue Tuesday new draft resolution pressuring Iran over atomic works
      Associated Press Published:  01.21.08, 19:45 / Israel News 
      The UN Security Council’s five permanent members and Germany are expected to agree Tuesday on a new draft resolution to pressure Iran over its nuclear program, a French diplomat said.
      The senior diplomat, who briefed reporters Monday on condition that he not be identified by name, said an agreement was very close and should be finalized by the six nations‘ foreign ministers at a meeting Tuesday in Berlin.
      He would not give details on the resolution, but said it would be „very balanced, very firm“ and likely be presented to the UN Security Council for debate by the end of the month. „We are really very close,“ he said.
      The Security Council has issued two resolutions on Iran imposing international sanctions over its defiance of international demands that it suspend uranium enrichment. The United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany have been discussing for months a third UN resolution.

  2. haz Steinmeier sucht einheitliche UN-Linie
    Im Iran geht es offenkundig gut voran: Im Sommer dieses Jahres soll das Atomkraftwerk in Buschehr nach jahrelanger Bauzeit mit halber Kraft ans Netz gehen. Erst jüngst, am Wochenende, vermeldete Teheran, schon mehr als die Hälfte des benötigten Atombrennstoffs sei aus Russland angeliefert worden, 44 Tonnen insgesamt.
    Die Freude darüber hält sich – international betrachtet – freilich in Grenzen. Während Teheran die Fortschritte seines Atomprogramms bejubelt, blicken Israelis, Amerikaner, Briten und nicht zuletzt die Deutschen sorgenvoll in Richtung Iran. Denn mittlerweile laufen im Iran auch tausende Zentrifugen zur Urananreicherung rund, ein wichtiger Schritt auf dem Weg zur vollständigen Beherrschung des Brennstoffkreislaufs – und damit der Fähigkeit zum Bombenbau. Zwei Sanktionsrunden hat der UN-Sicherheitsrat gegen Teheran wegen des mysteriösen Atomprogramms und der Urananreicherung bereits beschlossen, vor allem die Amerikaner dringen auf eine weitere Verschärfung der Wirtschaftssanktionen – während die Sicherheitsratsmitglieder Russland und China mit dem Mullah-Regime Waffen- und Erdölgeschäfte machen.

    By News Agencies
    China said Tuesday that Iran’s nuclear standoff with the West was at a critical stage and it hoped for an objective exchange of opinion in talks later in the day in Berlin.

  8. Haaretz   Top German officials slam Austrian trade ties with Iran  By Benjamin Weinthal,
    Top German officials, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have recently criticized Austria’s commercial ties with Iran and its opposition to tighter sanctions on the Islamic republic, according to a source with ties to the Berlin government.
    These criticisms, made at several high-level meetings, are the first sign of a rift between fellow European Union members Austria and Germany over trade with Iran.
    In one closed-door meeting last autumn, according to the source, Merkel said that Austria set a dangerous precedent when its state-owned energy and gas company OMV negotiated a 22 billion euro agreement to develop Iranian gas and oil fields. Merkel said that the EU must work to stop such agreements.

    Ein französisches Gericht will diese Woche entscheiden, ob das Einfrieren von Konten der iranischen Zentralbank in Frankreich zur Entschädigung von Terroropfern rechtmäßig war. Durch das Grundsatzurteil könnte eine wichtige Hürde für Entschädigungszahlungen an Betroffene von Attentaten aus dem Weg geräumt werden.
    Die beschlagnahmte Summe würde zu einem großen Teil amerikanischen Terroropfern zugesprochen werden, die seit Jahren gegen den Iran auf Entschädigung für die durch Anschläge erlittenen Verluste und Verletzungen klagen. „Es ist zum ersten Mal gelungen, Gelder zugunsten von Terroropfern zu lokalisieren und anzuhalten“, bestätigte der französische Rechtsanwalt Christoph Radtke von der Kanzlei Lamy der FTD. Damit seien die Opfer Entschädigungszahlungen ein Stück näher gekommen: „Das ist ein Hoffnungszeichen.“ Eine Entscheidung fällt das Gericht diesen Donnerstag.

Where are peace-lovers and human-lovers to prevent the slaughter of the oppressed men, women, and children? Where are the alleged supporters of human rights? Why does not the U.N.

    Iranian Armed Forces General Staff Lieutenant Commander Gen. Masoud Jazayeri has stated that U.S. soldiers are unable to stand against Iranian combatants. According to the Iranian news agency Fars, Gen. Jazayeri made the statements „in the wake of massive propaganda by Western media over an alleged confrontation between Iranian and U.S. Navy vessels in the Persian Gulf earlier this month.“Gen. Jazayeri said that the hue and cry by the Western media about the incident was aimed at portraying Iran as a threat to world peace and security, on the eve of the visit to the region by U.S. President George Bush. He said that the prompt action by Iranian officials, which included presentation of authentic documents and footage of the incident, proved the baseless and untrue nature of the U.S. allegations. Following this, he said, „the Americans were obliged to acknowledge that their reports were not true.“ He stated, „Evidence has revealed that no American soldier or military personnel is able to stand against Iranian combatants.“
