Iran In 2007: ‘Kerry Backs Our Nuclear Rights’

Kerry Backs Up Iran’s N. Rights

January 28, 2007

TEHRAN (Fars News Agency) – Former US presidential nominee John Kerry voiced full support for the Islamic Republic’s right to use civilian nuclear technology on the basis of the rules and regulations of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NTP).

Addressing a world Economic Forum meeting in Davos Switzerland on Saturday, Kerry also strongly rejected West’s demanded prerequisites for the resumption of nuclear talks with Iran.

Kerry, whose remarks followed a speech by Iran’s former President Seyed Mohammad Khatami, stated his support for Khatami’s views, and said Americans find out – only when they are outside their country – that the world is different from what they imagine.

"We should give up pessimism and pick up a realistic view," he said, and further stressed the need for the US to change its policies towards the world countries and issues.

The US politician also approved of Khatami’s views about increased tension and violence in the world, and concluded, "As Mr. Khatami said, violence increased in the region after the occupation of Afghanistan, Iraq and Bin Ladenism."

In other words, they say Kerry blamed the increased violence in the Middle East on the US’s invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Earlier in the same meeting, former Iranian President Seyed Mohammad Khatami said that violence and terror have roots outside Iraq, and stressed that anyone willing to help to the settlement of the Middle-East problem should first prove his impartiality…

Which Kerry then did.

By the way, lest we forget, once upon a time Mr. Kerry championed the "nuclear freeze" movement in the United States. Indeed, it was the "nuclear freeze" issue that got him elected to the Senate.

In fact, in his first first Senate speech Kerry introduced a “a bill to provide for a comprehensive bilateral and verifiable freeze between the United States and the Soviet Union on the testing, production, and deployment of nuclear weapons systems.” However Kerry was unable to get even one co-sponsor and the bill never made it to the Senate floor for a vote.

Of course the only nuclear capabilities Kerry has only ever sought to limit are ours. And certainly not those of a country run by madmen who want to destroy Western Civilization.
