Peter Jenkins, the UK’s Permanent Representative to the IAEA from 2001-06, discusses his article “Iran Nuclear Talks Offer Opportunity If The US Wants It;” the mainstream media’s sudden truth-telling on Iran’s nuclear program; Obama’s apparent interest in good-faith negotiations that recognize Iran’s NPT rights; why excessive US demands (close Fordow facility, give up 20% uranium) don’t necessarily preclude reasonable compromises later on; Ray McGovern’s theory that a Jundullah terrorist attack scuttled the 2009 fuel swap agreement; why Israel is the main hindrance to better US-Iran relations; IAEA claims that the “alleged studies” documents are corroborated by other sources, and that Iran at least pursued knowledge (if not production) of nuclear weapons before 2003; and a comparison of IAEA chief Yukiya Amano and his predecessor Mohamed ElBaradei.

  1. REAL ISSUE

    Peter Jenkins
    “The only reason the West has been trying to stop Iran
    from enriching uranium is because, WE FEARED that Iran
    would enrich weapons grade uranium.”

    Such is a pretense of good, ”WE FEARED”, used to hide an intent to be enriched upon the misery of the Middle-East, the intent being cheep oil from the Middle-East,

  2. In my opinion, all Western politicians like Peter Jenkins belong locked up in an open air prision.

  3. Language allways gives it away. With all respect “SIR” Peter but “our oil company” “allowd to”? Some bloody important news SIR, the crown can kizz some hairy mullah buttocks, even though they own some of those buttocks! Ofcourse you want to watch out you don’t want to end up like poor Sir Kelly.

  4. Great interview. I really like this guy. Hope you'll invite him back for more.

  5. America and Iran should talk to solve their problems it is good for World

  6. The clockwork of American elections: Every 2 years the fight for the Congress and every 4 years for the control of the White House as well as the Congress; are the overwhelming determinants of the US foreign policy in the year leading to those elections.
    In the case of Iran it is therefore instructive to look at what happened back in 2008, the year of the last presidential elections in the US, in order to guess what Israel might do in 2012.
    In 2008 Israel kept up reminding the world that Iran’s nuclear program was the existential threat the Jewish State would no longer tolerate and would remove militarily.
    Then, in 2008 prior to the polling day in November, the air was thick with media speculations in the US about an “October surprise”: an US/Israeli attack on Iran just before the US presidential vote. The Western opinion-makers seemed then, in 2008 just as worried as they are today, that Israel was on the verge of attacking Iran with or without American participation or approval.
    No American or Israeli attack on Iran materialized in 2008 and has not since. But in the meantime Iran has improved its capacity to defend the country and retaliate more effectively if attacked. It has also launched 3 satellites since 2009 as a small indication of the country’s much improved war-making capabilities against Israel.
    Would the same Israel that did not dare get itself and the world involved in a war with Iran in 2008 risk a war now in 2012?
    Iranian leaders have said it time and time again that they don’t fear Israel ever attacking Iran without American approval; and they are obviously not going to be fooled by the shrill threats emanating from Netanyahu and his defense minister in an American election year.
    The fact that the Islamic Republic has decided to negotiate and perhaps forfeit some of its NPT-guaranteed rights is because of the severe US-imposed sanctions and the perception of vulnerability President Obama might show to Iran–policy assaults by the Israeli Lobby and the Republicans in this election year.
    The Obama Administration should seize this fleeting opportunity, conclude a satisfactory nuclear deal with Iran and free the world of this never-ending din of war once and for all.
