Pakistan India Nuclear Facilities

New Delhi : The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) on Thursday in a statement said that India and Pakistan exchanged the list of their nuclear installations and facilities.

This annual exercise carried out between the two countries is covered under a bilateral agreement that bars them from attacking each other’s nuclear facilities.

This is the twenty fourth consecutive exchange of such list taking place between the two countries, the first one having taken place on January 1, 1992.

The agreement, which was signed on 31 December 1988 and entered into force on January 27, 1991 provides, inter alia, that the two countries inform each other of nuclear installations and facilities to be covered under the Agreement on the first of January of every calendar year.

The two countries also exchanged, through diplomatic channels simultaneously at their respective capital, the list of nationals of each country lodged in the jails of the other country.

The agreement which was signed on 31st May 2008 provides for a comprehensive exchange of list of nationals of each country lodged in other country’s jails twice a year on 1st of January and 1st of July.

Obama Trying To Bypass Congress On Iranian Sanctions

US President Barack Obama does not have the authority to use his “veto pen” on legislation tightening sanctions on Iran, as there is a “supermajority” in Congress in favor of additional bans, says Sen. Marco Rubio.

Rubio, a Republican from Florida and potential contender for 2016 presidential election, says it is within Obama’s powers to obstruct the movement of legislation in Congress but not when it comes to Iran.

“There are some bills where I think he won’t be able to do that on — for example, sanctions on Iran. I think we’ll have a supermajority, a veto-proof majority to impose additional sanctions on Iran and to require the administration to come before Congress for approval of any deal that he has with Iran,” the senator said in an interview with NPR News.

Asked whether he would impose additional sanctions on Tehran in the midst of nuclear talks even if the move would destroy the prospect of a deal, Rubio said, “yes, because I don’t believe there is a prospect for a deal with Iran.”

Sen. Rubio said that the United States has made “a number of concessions” to Iran including the right to “enrich and reprocess” uranium, raising concern that “that infrastructure could very easily be ramped up in the future to produce a nuclear-grade uranium or plutonium.”

Rubio’s comments came days after President Obama told NPR that Iran should seize the chance of a long-term deal that could lift the sanctions.

More than a year ago, Iran agreed to an interim deal to suspend 20-percent uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions pending on a long-term deal.

Despite progress in the talks, Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council — China, Russia, Britain, France, and the United States — plus Germany failed to clinch a final deal by a Nov. 24 deadline. The talks have now been extended until July 1, 2015.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham announced last week that the US Senate would vote on Iran sanctions legislation next month.

“In January of next year, there will be a vote on the Kirk-Menendez bill, bipartisan sanction legislation,” he said in a press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday, referring to sanctions legislation drafted by Sens. Bob Menendez and Mark Kirk.

Khamanei: The Master Of Hypocrisy

IRAN: HYPOCRISY, HUNGER, AND HANGINGS

INU-Evidence against Iran’s interest in cooperation with the US comes from the highest levels of Iranian power. In the wake of recent protests in response to the deaths of several African Americans at the hands of police officers, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei co-opted Twitter hashtags related to the protest movement in order to make hypocritically disparaging remarks about the US’s treatments of its minorities.

This hypocrisy was highlighted on The Christian Science Monitor on Monday reported upon Ayatollah Khamenei’s recent tweets that have co-opted hashtags for US protests in order to decry US police brutality while ignoring the far more commonplace and institutionalized brutality and repression in Iran.

The Monitor notes that Khamenei’s commentary met with critical responses and ridicule by many Twitter users, who countered the co-opted #BlackLivesMatter hashtag with alternatives appropriate to the situation in Iran, including, #AllLivesMatter, #KurdishLivesMatter, #WomenLivesMatter.
Writing in News Blaze on Wednesday, the National Council of Resistance of Iran called upon the world community to help save the life of Alireza Rasouli, who it says has now been on a hunger strike for 47 days and has been denied medical treatment for cancer and osteoporosis, as well as malnutrition.

The same article also highlights the condition of Benham Ebrahimzadeh, another political prisoner on hunger strike, this one since December 2. Ebrahimzadeh has reportedly been denied warm clothing and exposed to the winter cold in an effort to curtail his protest.

The NCRI also points out that 59 prisoners in Karun Prison began a coordinated hunger strike on December 21, in protest against poor conditions and denial of medical treatment.

These issues of prisoner mistreatment are closely connected to the liberal application of the death penalty in Iran, which is the source of additional criticisms of the regime’s human rights abuses. On this point, Breitbart cited the NCRI on Wednesday as a source of information on the volume of recent executions.

At least nine individuals were reportedly hanged on Christmas Day in Iran, helping to bring the estimated total number of execution to at least 707 for the year 2014, according to the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center. These numbers far exceed the volume of executions said to have taken place under the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
