iraIran is accusing the five nuclear powers of failing to take concrete action to eliminate their stockpiles and is calling for negotiations on a treaty to achieve nuclear disarmament by a target date.

Iran’s deputy U.N. ambassador Gholam Hossein Dehghani told the U.N. Disarmament Commission Wednesday that “a comprehensive, binding, irreversible, verifable” treaty is the most effective and practical way to eliminate nuclear weapons.

He accused the nuclear powers — the U.S., Russia, China, Britain and France — of promising nuclear disarmament but making no progress and said the timetable should be set during negotiations.

Dehghani’s speech came days after the announcement of a framework agreement between Iran and the five nuclear powers and Germany aimed at keeping Tehran from being able to develop a nuclear weapon.

  1. Part of the long term plan for Iran taking over the world which they say is foretold in the Koran. Step 1 sign an agreement to keep the western powers off their backs. Step 2 get all other countries to get rid of their nukes. Step 3 break the agreement with the western powers build your own nukes & you’ll be the only one to have them.

  2. Mutual assured destruction is believed to be a deterrent from nuclear warfare. If Iran believes it’s the only country with nukes, that’s one more factor in favor of them pursuing a nuclear attack, without immediate destruction.

  3. I’ll bet Obama jumps right on this bandwagon to rid of nukes. Obama will also believe Iran when Iran says it too stopped its nuke program. All the while Iran still pushes for a nuke hoping to be the only country with a nuke.

  4. Yes, this article does report on a laughable proposal from Iran, but we must keep in mind the target audience for this remark. I suspect it is the Iranian public, and the proposal is a form of face-saving that the more civil factions of the Iranian government must engage in to remain in office over the objection over the more uncivil and war-mongering factions within Iran.
