With US officials publicly condemning the third party enrichment deal they once endorsed, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today warned that if the West foils the exchange it will spell an end to all negotiation on their civilian nuclear program.
Indeed, it is hard to imagine that there would be any point in additional negotiations involving the US, as President Obama vigorously endorsed the third party enrichment deal in October and now that Iran has accepted it, officials are reacting with as much outrage as when Iran was still debating the issue.
The deal would have Iran send 1,200 kg of low enriched uranium abroad in return for fuel rods to produce nuclear isotopes for medical purposes. The deal was successfully negotiated by Turkish and Brazilian officials, which has led the US to not only condemn the deal, but to condemn Turkey and Brazil as well.
