Greece, Sweden back Iran declaration

Press TV – June 3, 2010

Seeking to lighten the mood over Iran’s nuclear program, Greece and Sweden have called for the implementation of the recent Tehran declaration on a potential nuclear fuel swap.

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt called for the implementation of the Tehran nuclear declaration in a telephone conversation with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki late Wednesday, IRNA reported.

Iran, Turkey, and Brazil signed a declaration in the Iranian capital on May 17, committing Tehran to shipment of 1,200 kilograms (2,640 pounds) of its low-enriched uranium in Turkey in exchange for 120 kilograms of 20-percent enriched nuclear fuel for the Tehran Research Reactor that produces radioisotopes for cancer treatment.

In their telephone conversation, the three high ranking officials also discussed the recent Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid convoy and denounced the brutal assault against the Palestinian community.

The Israeli military attacked the Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea early on May 31, killing at least 20 people, mostly Turkish nationals, on board and injuring about 50 others.

Israel also arrested nearly 700 activists from 42 different countries on board the Freedom Flotilla that were attempting to break the siege of Gaza in order to deliver humanitarian supplies to the long-suffering people of the coastal territory.

The official condemnations come as the pre-dawn attack by Israeli commandos on the Turkish-flagged Flotilla has sparked a torrent of international criticism against Tel Aviv.

  3. The collective punishment that Israel continues to meet out to the residence of Gaza because of their choice in leadership is criminal.

    Just as the attack on the USS Liberty has been misrepresented by Israel and its supporters and stooges in the US Government, this attack too is being misrepresented as some type of justifiable act of self-defense. The corporate media cannot spin Israel out of responsibility for the deaths of innocents.

    An apartheid regime, whether it be historical South Africa or present day Israel, will not survive the test of time. It will collapse under the weight of injustice necessary to perpetuate itself.

    If the entire holy land were to somehow slip into the Mediterranean, like some new age Atlantis, I would not shed a tear. I would view it as pay back for the decades of Israeli crimes against humanity.

  4. @Jeffrey Barbato – These aren’t Jews, these are some sick minded “chosen” people. Remember the Nazis? They also thought of themselves as the “chosen” or the “master race”.

    To bad the 3 German submarines probably equipped with nuclear war heads were allowed to go into the Persian Gulf.

    We will see another massacre and of course we won’t do a thing.
