An Iranian opposition group released a report on Friday which says
that the Islamic Republic is continuing to try and develop nuclear
weapons while holding talks with Western powers.
The group is the People´s Mujahedin of Iran, also known as the
Mujahedeen Khalq, an underground of some 10,000 insurgents that has
worked against the Islamic regime in Tehran for many years.
According to a report in the German newspaper Die Welt, Iran is
accelerating and expanding activities in the Parchin military site
and pushing ahead to build a nuclear warhead. Mujahedeen Khalq is
claiming that the Iranian regime has set up a comprehensive and
sophisticated research structure, under utmost secrecy, in
conjunction with a logistics network obtaining the necessary parts
and equipment, in order to reach this objective.
Mujahedeen Khalq is the group that first blew the whistle on Iran’s
secret nuclear programs in 2002, and it claims its newest report is
based on sources within the Iranian military and the Revolutionary
Guards. The report exposes a list of nuclear scientists who are
working on developing nuclear weapons, and even the phone numbers of
some of them.
Earlier this week, new satellite photographs published by a
Washington think tank suggested that Iran has been cleansing the
The Institute for Science and International Security said in an
online posting that the imagery showed unidentified items lined up
outside the chamber, possibly related to cleaning, and what appeared
to be a stream of water from or near the chamber.
The satellite imagery was reportedly taken on April 9, after
inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency had made
repeated requests for permission to visit the chamber at the site.
Iranian officials have rejected the requests.
Iran is set to hold negotiations with the United States, France,
Russia, China, Germany and Britain over the Islamic Republic´s
nuclear program in Baghdad on May 23.
Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi has expressed hope that the
next round of talks with the six powers will mark “the beginning of
the end of the nuclear issue.” (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/12/12)
