But most importantly, there were other EU member states who were issued the same set of cowardly EU “Common Instructions” that chose not to attend the racist speech where Ahmainejad denied the Holocaust.
EJP: Delegations from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Britain, Costa Rica, Denmark, France Germany, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand and the United States left the room as Ahmadinejad began to rail against Israel,
So once again, the Finnish Foreign Ministry, as they did in Geneva with its participation in the Durban II racist conference, listening to the blather of Ahmadinejad, and now at the UN, the Finns (and Swedes and Norwegians) prove not to be the humanitarians, and anti-racists they claim to be. KGS
PITTSBURGH, Sept. 25 — The government of Iran has told the International Atomic Energy Agency that it is building a second uranium enrichment plant for making fuel, the nuclear watchdog agency said Friday.
Although Obama referred to the nuclear ambitions of both Iran and North Korea during the session, diplomatic maneuvering kept any mention of the two countries out of a resolution that the council unanimously approved. The omission prompted passionate criticism from French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who will join Obama and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown Friday morning to decry Iran’s newly disclosed facility.
“How, before the eyes of the world, could we justify meeting without tackling them?” Sarkozy scolded Thursday, referring to Iran and North Korea. “We live in the real world, not a virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.”
Iran was previously known to have one enrichment plant.
Iran’s Sept. 21 letter to the IAEA stated “that a new pilot fuel enrichment plant is under construction in the country,” agency spokesman Marc Vidricaire said. “The letter stated that the enrichment level would be up to 5 percent.”
