  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Turkey: We’re Prepared to Store the Iranian Uranium

A week after the IAEA compromise proposal regarding Iran's uranium under Turkish custody, a formal offer has not yet been sent to Turkey. However, the Turkish Energy Minister announced that his country would agree to the compromise to allay the West’s fear of an Iranian nuclear bomb.

A week after the Chairman of the International Atomic Energy Agency raised the proposal in which Iranian uranium would be transferred into Turkish custody as a third party, a formal proposal has not yet been sent to Turkey, but the Turkish Energy Minister referred to the offer this morning (Friday), and said that his country would respond positively to it in order to calm the fears of the West from an Iranian nuclear bomb.

According to Minister Taner Yildiz, Turkey will store the enriched uranium temporarily in order to implement the draft agreement on Iran's nuclear plans with Western countries. The idea of Turkey replacing Russia and France was raised by the Chairman Dr. Mahmoud ElBaradei, after Iran rejected a European offer of custody of the enriched uranium in exchange for nuclear fuel for medical research purposes. "There is no intention to send some of over 1,200 kg of enriched uranium we have to an external party to obtain nuclear fuel. We never considered the possibility; not the transfer of material gradually nor all at once," said the head of the Iranian parliament’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Ala A-Din Borojredi, last week. He later retracted his remarks, and said that the proposals are still on the table of decision makers in Iran.
 
"There is no problem from the side of Turkey with Iran storing its low-grade uranium in Turkey. We cannot say no," the Turkish Minister Yildiz told reporters. According to the proposal initiator, Chairman Dr. Mahmoud ElBaradei, the United States government welcomed the Turkish proposal as a compromise because it is a breakthrough in the impasse: "The Obama administration feels very comfortable with the new idea," ElBaradei said last week. He thought the idea would resolve the "impasse with Iran, and promote the agreement with it." ElBaradei noted that "Iran has great confidence in Turkey." 

Turkey seems willing to do anything as long as it purifies the reputation of their Muslim friend, Iran.
