Video: Rouhani boasting how he duped the European nuclear negotiators

It seems that the road to nuclear war is paved with Europeans  wishing not to create bad feelings and look foolish.


The day that we invited the three European ministers (to the talks), only 10 centrifuges were spinning at (the Iranian nuclear facility of) Natanz. We could not produce one gram of U4 or U6 (uranium hexafluoride). … We did not have the heavy-water production. We could not produce yellow cake. Our total production of centrifuges inside the country was 150. 

We wanted to complete all of these – we needed time.

Mr Fisher states that he went to Tehran and promised  that Iran’s dossier will not be referred to the United Nations.

European official;

We went to Tehran to get them to agree to stop the enrichments and anything to do with enrichments. They should stop it forever so we wanted to get them into that by getting them to agree to a suspension, to a halt.  


Of course they promised more, France and England even promised to use their veto power, they promised to oppose America, they said “we won’t allow this dossier to go to the UN”

Jack Straw:

Rouhani looks at his watch and says it is time for us to go and report to the president and then something extraordinary happened, quite unscripted

European official:

And Yoshka banged the table and said look there is no point of us going to the president or talking to the to the press, we have not agreed on anything,

Yoshka Fisher:

We would be fools, I mean, to sit there at the press conference people arrived, nobody had an interest to create bad feelings


This is what I say that the threats must be changed to opportunity. Mr El`baradei in his book which has recently been translated into Farsi has stated that the three European ministers told him that they became human shields so America cannot attack  

European official:

Rouhani said, well, this as much we can agree to, and Yoshka said, well in that case  we might as well go and catch are plane.


We must change threats if not to opportunity but to harm, then from harm to ordinary conditions and then to opportunity.  The negotiations… there was no agreement, this is all for the uneducated . Look, Tehran declaration, the statement of Tehran, in that declaration there was a resolution that all nuclear activities must stop, but we did not allow it

From the Tehran declaration:
The Iranian government has rights within the NPT to expand its nuclear energy for peaceful purposes and agrees to suspend all Uranium enrichment activities per IAEA guidelines.  The commitment by three European countries would recognize Iran has right to nuclear energy under the NPT in return for the treaty


Our policy during the 22 months was under the direct supervision of the supreme leader and I was his representative in the Supreme National Council then as well as today.

We did not stop, we completed the program.

Do you know when Bushehr’s (Iran nuclear power plant) first phase was completed? The beginning of 2004“Do you know when the next phase was inaugurated? The fall of 2004. Do you know when the project was completed? March of 2005. How about the heavy-water plant? Do you know when the production started? The summer of 2004. Do you know when yellow cake was produced? The winter of 2004. Do you know when the number of centrifuges reached 3,000? In 2005

The day I left the project we had 1700 centrifuges
