Clinton: China on board with Iran sanctions
US secretary of state says at G8 she believes Security Council member will not veto UN sanctions


Associated Press

US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that China agrees Iran must not become a nuclear weapons power and that the fellow Security Council member will play a role in forging sanctions against the Islamic republic at the United Nations.
In the Canadian capital for a meeting of top diplomats from the Group of Eight leading industrialized democracies, Clinton said that despite China's general opposition to international sanctions, it will contribute to the process at the UN.

The US is leading the charge to penalize Iran for refusing to prove that its nuclear ambitions are peaceful.

China is a permanent member of the Security Council and can block new sanctions with a veto, so its support for sanctions will be crucial.

"China is part of the consultative group that has been unified all along the way, which has made it very clear that a nuclear-armed Iran is not acceptable to the international community," Clinton said in an interview with Canadian television.

"I think as the weeks go forward and we begin the hard work of trying to come up with a Security Council resolution, China will be involved, they will be making their suggestions," she said.
President Barack Obama met Monday at the White House with China's new ambassador to the US, Zhang Yesui. Spokesman Robert Gibbs said Obama stressed the need for the two countries to cooperate "on critical global issues, including nonproliferation and pursuing sustained and balanced global growth."

China has been holding up consideration of new sanctions, saying diplomacy must be given time. But last week it appeared to soften its position in a conference call among senior officials from the six nations working most closely on the matter, according to diplomats.

Clinton did not address the specifics of any contribution that China might make but said she believed agreement could be reached.

"We're just going to have to, as in any effort, we're going to have to try to come to some consensus and we're in the middle of that process," Clinton said after answering flatly "no" when asked if the world would have to start living with a nuclear-armed Iran.

Iran will be a major topic at Clinton's meetings in Canada with her counterparts from the other G-8 nations. The alliance groups the US with Britain, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Japan and Russia.

Those discussions were beginning with a working dinner Monday and continuing in a formal session Tuesday.

Iran insists its nuclear program is for peaceful means only. Western powers believe the country is working to produce a nuclear weapon, as Iranian officials have refused demands to come clean about their intentions.

Russia, which like China is typically opposed to sanctions, has said it is willing to consider new penalties and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov will see Clinton in Ottawa to consider the issue further.

If Mrs Clinton's statements reflect China's position, we could say that there is now a consensus among the leading nations of the world, that Iran will not be afforded the opportunity to disrupt the
nuclear stability of the Middle East.

Iran's nuclear might has the only purpose of imposing on the Arab nations of the world, a broad Islamic Republic.

Report: Egypt, Saudi Arabia reject Iranian dialogue

Al-Hayat newspaper reports Arab League secretary-general proposes holding talks with Tehran, however suggestion rejected by prominent Arab leaders who also express dissatisfaction with Iraqi president's visit in Iran

Roee Nahmias - Israel News

A proposal presented by Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa to start an Arab-Iranian dialogue was met with resistance on the part of a "number of prominent Arab states" including Egypt and Saudi Arabia, the London-based al-Hayat newspaper reported Sunday.

According to the report, harsh criticism was leveled at Iraqi President Jalal Talabani who chose to hold a visit in Tehran on Saturday, the same day the 22nd Arab summit opened in Libya. Representing him in Libya was Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari.

The paper reported that Moussa had previously raised the idea in Damascus a year ago.

The report is based on high-level diplomatic sources who noted that Arab leaders and delegation heads were appalled by Talalbani's visit in Iran and regarded it as a display of support of Tehran. Moussa further proposed to create a region for Arab countries' neighbors to include Turkey and African states, and suggested to start an Arab-Iranian dialogue.

According to the diplomatic sources, prominent Arab countries including Egypt and Saudi Arabia rejected Moussa's idea of negotiating with Iran. "What would we negotiate with Iran? Would we discuss the request to stop interfering in Lebanon, Iraq and Gaza, something which need not have happened in the first place?" they wondered.

The leaders further noted that "the dialogue would grant Iran the status it seeks" and said that bilateral talks between Iran and several Arab countries were sufficient. "However, turning this dialogue to matters which cannot be discussed or accepted is outright wrong and therefore Secretary-General Moussa's proposal is rejected."

The Arab states understand that Iran can not be let develop the nuclear might that will eventually render their nations hostages in the hands of the mullhas regime of Teheran.

In Israel we are in a state of alert. On ocasions like this, when the Arabs stand in direct diplomatic confrontation with Iran, the Teheran regime plays what I call "the Hissballah and Hamas cards".

I wouldn't be surprised if both the Hamas (in the Gaza Strip) and Hissballah (in southern Lebanon) will "find" a fictitious reason to escalate the present situation across our borders .........into an armed confrontation with Israel.
