world peace....

Iran's agreement to send a majority of its low-enriched uranium to Russia for processing shows that the rogue nation is gradually coming to its senses, and slowly withdrawing from its ambition of nuclear bomb making, rather than using the technology only to generate energy for its growing population. 

According to International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei, Iran is ready to accept a draft, which is the end product of negotiations by the United States, Russia and France that has been reached with the representatives of Iran in Vienna to be presented in all four countries for approval not later than Friday, 10/23/09.

Iran's chief delegate Ali Asghar Soltanieh, has hailed the draft as being promising by saying that it is "on the right track," and "We have to thoroughly study this text and also (need) further elaboration in capitals," pointing the way for Iran to gain a remission from the International community and to finally be accepted back into its fold.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has emphasized that "Iran must take immediate measures to execute steps on low enriched uranium", thus moving it elsewhere, and in that instance, Russia has been the designated location, or the U.S. will not talk to "Iran merely for the sake of talking"; as Reuters, the news agency, reports. There seems, however, an indication that the draft, if approved, will pave the way for the two countries to have a one on one talks to reduce tensions.

It will also enable the rest of the world to breathe a sigh of relief from what might have been a volatile situation that will threaten the peace which all nations need to exist coherently; and if that is what the proposed draft is leading to, then the Iranian leaders in Tehran must find it feasible to approve it as quickly as possible, so that preparations can move forward to implement its (draft's) contents. Such a venture will have so many technicalities being involved, with scientists and nuclear specialists, including all kinds of organizations trailing behind for verification purposes, while at the same time detailed diplomatic negotiations continue.

It is a breakthrough that must be regarded as a cogent part of settling the nuclear dispute of whether Iran has had, and continues to have the intention of developing nuclear weapons that will threaten the existence of Israel, and for that matter, be detrimental to world peace. Nevertheless, Iran President Ahmadinejad's insistence that the technology is geared only to produce energy for peaceful use must be encouraged by all factions to that dispute, with much alacrity that it (Ahmadinejad's prediction) will be so.

It will also set a good example for other nations to follow the path to peace; and its implications will be a fair outcome, as well as serve as a warning to, not just North Korea, for example; but other countries that may have the intentions of defying the United Nations Security Council resolution which has focused on the disarmament and non-proliferation of nucelar weapons, and which has been adopted and signed only a few weeks ago. 

Hopefully, Iran will not look on the final result, if everything goes well and as planned, with the draft as being a forerunner to restore normal relations, to be a reprieve of some sort that is being offered by the U.S. and rest of the world for it (Iran) to abstain from what is its right to pursue nuclear power. It has to accept it (final result) as a prerequisite to allow it (Iran) an admission into the comity of nations once again. 

Take heed, Iran.
