Iran Defiant Ahead Of Sanction Deadline, Ahmadinejad Says He’ll Stop Enrichment If U.S. Does Too – CBS News
(CBS/AP) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on Western nations Tuesday to stop their own enrichment programs if they wanted his country to stop its own and return to negotiations.

Ahmadinejad told a crowd of thousands in northern Iran one day ahead of a U.N. Security Council deadline that it was no problem for his country to stop, as long as western nations did the same.

“Justice demands that those who want to hold talks with us shut down their nuclear fuel cycle program too,” he said. “Then, we can hold dialogue under a fair atmosphere.”

Ahmadinejad spoke in a far more conciliatory tone than the one he usually adopts, avoiding fiery denunciations of the West with a call for talks.

“We are for talks but they have to be fair negotiations. That means, both sides hold talks under equal conditions,” he said.

He added, however, that it was unacceptable for countries to demand that Iran stop its nuclear activities without reciprocity.

This I’m sure will spark debate as to ‘fairness’ in the geopolitical arena. While ImANutJob’s premise seems reasonable on it’s face. It easily recognized as not ‘do-able’. So what are the actual solutions that are?

Discuss it here…
