    TEHRAN — Iran said on Sunday it will host a nuclear disarmament conference this month to be attended by China, which has been resisting new sanctions against Tehran over its atomic ambitions.
    "This is an international conference and Iran, which advocates nuclear disarmament, is calling on all nations to disarm," Tehran's chief nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili told the official IRNA news agency.
    Jalili said "the Chinese have welcomed the initiative... and will participate" in the April 17-18 conference.
    The conference -- called "Nuclear Energy For All, Nuclear Weapons For No-one" -- would come soon after an international nuclear security summit to be held in Washington on April 12-13.
    Iran has been under mounting global pressure to abandon its nuclear programme, with Western powers fearing it wants to build an atomic bomb. Tehran says the programme is peaceful and only meant to produce energy.
    It has already been slapped with three sets of United Nations Security Council resolutions, and the spectre of more lingers spearheaded by Washington and some western nations.
    China, one of the five veto-weilding Security Council members, has stiffly resisted any fresh sanctions against Iran.
    On Sunday, Jalili said Iran was still ready to talk with world powers over its own package of proposals to resolve issues including disarmament discussed in Geneva last year.
    "We said before we are ready to talk on issues which can help world peace, stability and security." Jalili said.
    "It is better for the countries who left these negotiations to return to it and continue the dialogue. These negotiations clearly can furnish the ground for world cooperation to address common concerns."
    Foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said meanwhile the title of the conference indicated Iran's "seriousness in utilising nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, and we consider it to be the right of all nations."
    "But using nuclear arms should not be allowed by any nation and that the world should be without such weapons," adding a list of other countries planning to attend would be announced later.
    Since the Geneva talks on October 1, talks between Iran and the 5-plus-1 group -- the permanent Security Council members Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany -- have focussed specifically on a nuclear fuel deal.

    Nuclear energy for all, nuclear weapons for none: Iran


    TEHRAN – Iran said on Monday that it is the right of all countries to gain access to nuclear technology under the NPT rule but no country “must have the right to possess or use nuclear weapons.” the Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

    The conference, dubbed as "Nuclear Energy For All, Nuclear Weapon For None", will be held in Iran on April 17-18.

    Foreign ministers, representatives and nuclear experts from 60 countries are due to participate in the event to discuss challenges on nuclear disarmament, countries' commitments to the issue and the aftermaths of not destroying weapons of mass-destruction.

    In February, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani announced in Japan that Iran is scheduled to hold an international gathering on global disarmament in Tehran in the next two months to be attended by internationally renowned elites and experts, adding that participants are slated to assess the causes and reasons underlying the lack of heed and attention to the implementation of nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) regulations, Article 6 in particular.

    According to Article 6 of the NPT, each of the Parties to the Treaty undertakes to pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament, and on the Treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.

    The spokesman added, “Global nuclear disarmament should be pursued vigorously.”

    No negotiations on Iran’s undeniable nuclear right.



    India & China are attending the conference.

    This may or may not result in anything but yeah a Big Blow to Mr.Obama & his only peacemaker role...

    If things move positively then Iran has India, China & Russia on its side against Mr.Nobel peace prize winner & his team,

    This will end up in a classic EAST Vs WEST power game!

    It's quite exciting to see what's going to happen... vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

    What use for this sir, US isn't going to give up it's Nukes for anything. So isn't Russia, China. All these big guys want to have control over the world.
    This meeting is just an initiative that I'm sure won't be making much progress sadly.

    What Iran's trying to do is absolutely the right move though. NO ONE should have nukes.

    Real Agenda of this meeting is to make way for Iran to continue its Nuclear enrichment program being criticized & threatened by US. If several Nuclear powers come in support of Iran (like China/India/Russia) then it'll put a lot pressure on US to stop threatening Iran.

    The idea played by Iran is not to disarm world but to tell US that they are not GLOBAL POLICE & can't decide Iran's motives.

    This is going to get interesting with India demanding IAEA procedure rather than rouge attitude of US; while Russia, China, India openly against the sanctions requested by US; Israel getting trained like dog to strike Iran & at the same time Russia supplying arms to Iran... :)

    Ah, didn't think of that. It's clever how they call for a total disarmament meeting to discuss why they should be allowed nukes :D

    I am for Iran getting nukes! That way US and it's dad will piss their pants. Because they can't do anything about it. This sanctions stuff won't do anything. Iran has a good % of Oil and Gas reserves to keep it's trade.

    bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
    Go Iran Go!

    Israel better not do something stupid. [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[

    Iran's Khamenei condemns Obama's 'nuclear threat'

    AFP - Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned on Sunday US President Barack Obama for issuing what he said was a threat of a nuclear attack against the Islamic republic.

    "He (Obama) has implicitly threatened Iranians with nuclear weapons," Khamenei was quoted by state television as telling Iran's top military officials in Tehran.

    "These comments are very strange and the world should not ignore them because in the 21st century... the head of a state is threatening a nuclear attack," said the all-powerful Iranian leader.

    "The US president's statements are disgraceful. Such comments harm US and they mean that the US government is wicked and unreliable."

    On Tuesday, Washington unveiled its new nuclear policy which limits the nation's use of nuclear arsenal but indicated the United States could make exceptions to "outliers" such as Iran and North Korea.

    Talk of nuclear disarmament itself is a good joke and something that people desiring Nobels and those who have got a Nobel for no reason trying to prove his worth. Nothing will come out of all this rubbish. No one wants to part with nukes. If the US was interested in disarmament, then why did it limit itself to 1500 nukes and not something like 200 or max 500?

    As they say in India, conferences are about chai paani biscuit. Nuke conference is just that.

    I always wondered why are those Nuclear reduction treaties signed. When we had the Cold war, it was in both side's interest to have as many nukes as possible, but they still came together and agreed to mutually reduce the numbers of nukes. And why?
    Well, maintaining nukes costs MONEY. And a lot of it. US and Russia (or USSR back then) can wipe out the face of the Earth with 1500 warheads. Reduction from 20000 to 1500 is same as the one from 2200 to 1500. It's just a pure propaganda about "we want peace, we hate nukes" bullcrap. I also read somewhere that the warheads they are to get rid of, are not gonna be destroyed, they will actually going to be able to redeploy them in case of need. Quite a "reduction" they signed...
    I just wonder: do you guys just want to puke when you see an American/Russian talking about world without nukes?! I'd really like to meet a person who believes them...

    I do agree that this is a good move by Iran, even though I also think it's kinda futile. But I really wonder - are they really trying to build a nuclear bomb....
    This recent and present anti-Iran propaganda is just another proof of ridiocolously double standards that the West is maintaining. Pakistan is unequaled in terrorist supplying. Thousands of trainees, weapons of all kinds, leadership, logistics, resources, money, ideological support comes from Pakistan and goes into terror channels all over the world. Nobody moves a finger when they wanna make nukes. They actually help them. But Iran... That's a different deal. God, what hipocricy...
