IRI eating humble SHIT PIE in front of the Arabs

MANAMA, July 13 (KUNA) -- Bahrain and Iran affirmed on Saturday that they were bound with "warm and brotherly relations" in a joint diplomatic move that followed apparent strains in the bilateral relations.The declaration by the two sides followed tension between the two sides after remarks by a leading Iranian intellectual figure making claims in Bahrain's territories.
Speaking at a news conference, Bahrain's Foreign Minister Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmad Al-Khalifa said after a meeting with his visiting Iranian counterpart, Manuchehr Motaki, that the latter assured him that the ties between the two countries would remain cordial.He added that he and his senior guest affirmed desire for promotion of the bilateral relations at various levels.The visit of the Iranian official to the country was intended to tackle misunderstanding resulting from "allegations made in the press and statements that infringed on Bahrain's sovereignty and independence." He was alluding to recent remarks by a leading Iranian intellectual figure who claimed that Bahrain had been part of Iran's main land in the old times.The Bahraini foreign minister added that he agreed with Motaki to hold a meeting of the joint committee in the foreseeable future "to discuss means of promoting the ties between the two sides in various sectors." On his part, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki stressed that the neighbouring states "respect each other's sovereignty and territorial integrity... what is disseminated by the media does not impact this solid policy between the two countries." He said his country pays great importance to reciprocal ties with neighboring countries and foremost Bahrain.He said that any tension would not serve interests of both countries but would have a negative impact on the two states.He said he did not come here to apologize for what newspapers had written nor to urge the dailies to apologize as well.He added his country would not submit an official apology for what the press writes.Mottaki said that Iran has always had good ties with its neighbors, adding that the history has never witnessed a war where Iran was the cause of it.


Iran OKs inspectors at nuclear reactor : By Borzou Daragahi - Los Angeles Times - Published: Saturday, July 14, 2007

Iran's decision to grant international inspectors greater access to a major nuclear facility was greeted by skepticism as well as cautious hope Friday among nonproliferation experts. Under the terms of an agreement announced Friday, the United Nation's international atomic watchdog will be granted access again to the heavy water reactor at Arak by the end of the month. International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA, inspectors earlier this year were barred from the remote facility after enjoying previous access. Tehran, the Iranian capital, is at loggerheads with the United States and the U.N. over Iran's nuclear program. Iranian officials insist their country is developing nuclear technology for domestic energy needs and to achieve other peaceful purposes. But governments in the United States, Europe and the Middle East fear Iran covertly is building infrastructure for the future production of atomic weapons and have punished Iran with sanctions. Heavy water reactors like the one in Arak produce isotopes used in medicine and for other peaceful purposes. But they also produce plutonium, which can be used for the core of nuclear warheads. The atomic agency also announced Friday that Iran had agreed on unspecified inspection ''safeguards'' for the nuclear fuel enrichment plant near the Iranian city of Natanz and a new roster of inspectors to enter the country. The accord doesn't address Tehran's continued enrichment of uranium at Natanz, the main issue of contention between Iran and the international community.
