Intelligence agencies of the United States have been working for the last couple of years to collect credible information on controversial nuclear program of Iran. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) dispatched a surveillance drone into airspace of Iran some three years back with the sole purpose of collecting information on nuclear facilities of the country. Reportedly, the drone penetrated around 600 miles into airspace of Iran and returned with valuable pictures of highly protected nuclear program of the country. Back in December last year, Iranian army also shot down a drone that was busy in collecting information about sensitive military and civil installations.
All the intelligence information gathered by spying agencies of the United States suggest that the country has yet to decide whether they should develop atomic bomb or not. White House officials say the US would come to know a year before about intentions of Iran if the country wanted to develop nuclear weapons. However, intelligence agencies of Israel and Britain suggest something otherwise. They believe that Iran is about to achieve nuclear weapons as it has acquired enrichment of uranium and nuclear fuel.
In a recent meeting between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Ministerin Washington, the latter tried his best to persuade the country for a military action against Iran. Military and civil leadership of Israel still face the existential threat from hegemonic designs of Iran. Iranian President has also never kept his views against Israel as secret.
The president has been calling holocaust as one of the dramas of the Jews and demanding relocation of the Israeli state. Iran believes the Israeli state was illegally carved out on land of the Arab countries; therefore not only they should move to another place but also seek unconditional apology from Arab world, especially fromfor killing innocent civilians. Israel believes that balance of power in the region will shift in favour of Iran if it succeeds in developing atomic bomb.
Civilian and military leadership of Iran has repeatedly said the country is not pursuing nuclear weapons and their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. Iran says the country’s nuclear program is for medical research and to fulfill energy needs of the country. The leadership of Iran remains adamant for years not to stop its nuclear program despite pressure and sanctions from the international community. Iranian president in one of his speeches to his people have laughed the sanctions off, saying the measures would not affect economy of the country.
After a year of the stalled dialogue, Iran has finally agreed to restore negotiations with the international community on its controversial nuclear program. Most probably, the international community is going to have dialogue with Iran on Friday; therefore they should try their best to convince Iran for more concessions on its nuclear program.
