Negotiations between the United Nation’s permanent security council and Iran have broken down, as a result of the hard-lined stance France took during the meetings.
France believes the deal being discussed did not do enough to constrain the terrorist-sponsoring state from enriching uranium or to “complete a reactor that will be able to produce plutonium.”
The members of the security council, Russia, China, Britain, France , United States, also known as the “P5,” invited Germany to sit in on the nuclear program negotiations with Iran.Under President Barack Obama, the United States is dealing from a position of weakness, after it has once again broken the long-standing position of not negotiating with terrorists or terrorist states. President and Secretary of State Kerry are fully supportive of the current deal being discussed, are hopefully optimistic that something will get done.
“Iran gives practically nothing and it gets a hell of a lot”- Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, appeared on ‘Face the Nation’ to reiterate that this deal of easing sanctions imposed on Iran, in exchange for Iran’s cooperation that would limit its ability to make a nuclear weapon, was “a very bad deal.”
“That’s not a good deal. I hope — I can only express my wish — that the P5+1 use the time to get a good deal that takes away Iran’s nuclear military capability,” said Netanyahu, who then added, “I’m expressing, as I said, not only the concerns of Israel but the concerns of many in the region.Some of them say it aloud, some say it behind closed doors, but I’ll tell you this is the broad feeling here, broad feeling, that Iran might hit the jackpot here. And it’s not good. It’s not good for us, it’s not good for America, it’s not good for the Middle East, it’s not good for Europe either.”-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (CBS)
Netanyahu is not alone with his concerns over this “very bad” deal coming out of the negotiations in Geneva,
U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL),who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Select Committee on Intelligence, has also taken issue with the concerns that the French raised during the negotiations, regarding the possibility that Iran may still be left with the capability to create a plutonium producing reactor.
Rubio then slammed the Obama administration’s current foreign policy projection of weakness, as he pointed out that the President was quick to “endorse a flawed arrangement with Iran,” ignoring the concerns of Israel and other allies about negotiating with Islamic state of Iran.
“No one who is serious about preventing a nuclear-armed Iran should be comforted by what transpired this weekend in Geneva. After ten years of talks that have been multilateral, bilateral, secret and open, we should expect more than just inconsequential interim measures from Iran.
“The urgency of the situation and the significant progress Iran has made in its nuclear efforts over the last decade demand much more than what the Obama administration appears willing to accept. Iran continues to refuse to meet the requirements of multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions and abandon its nuclear weapons program. None of the steps Iran reportedly has proposed will do much to significantly postpone the possibility of a nuclear-armed Iran even as the U.S. and our partners would give up key economic leverage with Tehran.-Senator Marco Rubio
