India has nuclear weapons and, like its neighbour Pakistan, has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Australia has never before sold uranium to a non-signatory of the NPT.

Rio Tinto Ltd expects to start exporting Australian uranium to India in the next two years, its chief executive said, as soon as safeguards are in place to restrict its use to power generation.
“Once all those steps are in place, clearly there is an opportunity for us and Australia here,” Sam Walsh said on the sidelines of an energy conference on Monday.

India has nuclear weapons and, like its neighbour Pakistan, has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). Australia has never before sold uranium to a non-signatory of the NPT.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who took office in May, aims to raise the share of nuclear power in electricity generation from just 3 percent, as part of a strategy to curb chronic power shortages and cut reliance on oil imports.

Modi and his Australian counterpart Tony Abbott sealed a deal in September for Australia to sell India uranium, in a show of international acceptance toward India’s nuclear programme.

India has nuclear energy agreements with 11 countries and imports uranium from France, Russia and Kazakhstan.

Rio Tinto is one of the world’s top uranium producers.

Shiite political bloc claims US ‘cultivated’ Islamic State

Al-Ahrar’s criticism comes as Iraqi PM says that US-led support for the country’s army has been ‘slow’

A Shiite bloc in the Iraqi parliament on Monday blamed the US for having “cultivated” the Islamic State (IS) while the country’s leader criticised the US-coalition for its ‘slow’ support of Iraq’s army.
The US administration “gave rise to IS, cultivated it and used it as a tool to terrorise the masses,” a spokesperson for the al-Ahrar bloc, a group of politicians following the teachings of Shiite preacher Muqtada al-Sadr, told Anadolu Agency.

“The US supported IS (in the beginning). But it rebelled later on and started to expand,” said Hussein al-Awadi, al-Ahrar’s spokesperson.

“That’s when the US resorted to remedying its image as if it had no part in the creation of this group,” al-Awadi said, adding that the US established an “environment of chaos” in Iraq through “prolonging the war and leaving Iraq dependent on US troops”.

Awadi noted that US warplanes have provided IS militants with weapons and ammunitions on multiple occasions, saying each time that it was a mistake.

“Currently, the US has its largest embassy in Iraq, which is an indicator of how big of an invasion it is carrying out in the country. Lebanon and Syria are about to fall in to their (US) trap. However, the wisdom and awareness of the Iraqi, Lebanese and Syrian people will foil this trap and game,” he said.

PM: Slow army support

During a visit to Egypt on Sunday, Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said the US-led coalition has been slow to provide support to Iraq’s army, hampered in large part by wide-spread corruption.
“The international coalition is very slow in its support and training of the army,” Abadi said.

Later, he acknowledged that assistance had accelerated in the past two weeks, but called for a “further acceleration” for the army which he said may need three years to rebuild.

In his statement, Awadi, the al-Ahrar spokesperson, also criticised the failings of the army, who under the previous administration, were driven out of Iraq’s second city of Mosul by a much smaller of force of IS fighters.

“They just surrendered those places without putting up a fight. This was all because of the treason committed by the military leaders appointed by the former government. Commanders were not appointed on the merits of military professionalism and capabilities,” he said.

Awadi also praised Abadi, lauding the country’s leader for crossing sectarian boundaries, in contrast to the heavy criticism during former Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s term in office, often attacked for favouring Iraq’s Shiite majority at the expense of the Sunni minority.

“The former government (under Nouri al-Maliki) was founded on tension,” he said. “There was lots of tension and disagreement between the government and parliament, which also led to the loss of Mosul, Saladin and Anbar.”

12 Shiite militiamen killed

Awadi’s comments came as Iraqi authorities said a suicide car bomb killed 12 Shiite militiamen and soldiers north of Baghdad on Monday.

A suicide bomber rammed an explosive-laden car into a gathering of soldiers and Shiite fighters in the town of Abasiyat, 80 miles north of Baghdad, a police spokespeople told Associated Press.
Ten militiamen and two soldiers were killed and 18 people were wounded.

Sectarian violence in Iraq in 2014 hit heights not seen since 2006 as a result of the rise of IS and the opposing Shiite militias, according to Iraqi Body Count, a London-based organisation of academics and activists.

Earlier this year, Iraqi Body Count said that the number of civilians killed last year was 17,049, roughly double the number killed in 2013.

Shiite militias, such as the Sadrist Peace Brigade, have been key opponents of IS in Iraq, though some critics have accused them of engaging in sectarian cleansing.

Last week, al-Sadr, who has publicly condemned sectarian killings, called for the Iraqi government to expose the killers of three Sunni religious clergymen in Basra warning that “terrorism is targeting the relatively secured provinces”.

In a statement, he said that the killers want to divide the country and incite Sunnis to sectarian violence.

Though historically opposed to the rule of Saddam Hussein, the Sadrist movement also staunchly opposed the occupation of Iraq by US troops following Hussein’s ouster in 2003.
During the occupation, Muqtada al-Sadr, who comes from a line of influential Shiite clerics, led the Mahdi Army, a paramilitary force he formed in 2003, against US troops and became one of the most iconic figures in the resistance.

Iran Is Correct: It Is Called Saudi Arabia (Revelation 6:6)

Iran Leader says political plot behind oil price fall
OPEC Oil Manipulation
Sun Jan 11, 2015 10:05AM

The Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei believes a political conspiracy is behind the dramatic fall of oil prices.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the comment in a meeting with Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro. The Leader says enemies of Iran and Venezuela are definitely playing a role in lowering crude prices. Ayatollah Khamenei welcomed an agreement between Tehran and Caracas to help stabilize oil prices. The Leader also praised Venezuela’s resistance against the US, which he said, has promoted awareness in South America. Ayatollah Khamenei said that is the reason behind Washington’s hostility toward Caracas. Maduro for his part said Iran and Venezuela along with Russia are trying to call an OPEC meeting to restore oil prices to a quote-reasonable level. Earlier, Maduro held high-level talks with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.

Iran Asking For 20 Times More Uranium Than Needed (Rev 15:2)

Iran Needs 30 Tons of Enriched Uranium A Year: AEOI Chief

Speaking in a television talk show on Saturday night, Salehi said Iran is now enriching 2.5 tons of uranium each year, while the minimum need is assessed to be 30 tons a year.

He, however, noted that the West does not agree even on that amount of enrichment.

He said a contract with Russia, which built the Bushehr nuclear power plant, will expire after 8 years and Iran should be allowed to fuel the plant by itself afterwards.

“Eight years later, our (uranium) enrichment capacity must be 190,000 SWUs (Separative Work Units), and that amount would supply the 30 tons of enriched uranium for the Bushehr power plant,” Salehi explained.

Back in July 2014, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that Iran’s uranium enrichment was a vital issue, adding that the country definitely needed an enrichment capacity of 190,000 SWUs.

The Leader had warned that the West’s objective in the issue of uranium enrichment is to persuade the Islamic Republic of Iran to limit its enrichment capacity to 10,000 SWUs.

Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) are now in nuclear talks with the aim of hammering out a final agreement to end more than a decade of impasse over Tehran’s peaceful nuclear program.

Amid diplomatic negotiations, reports suggest that how to lift anti-Iran sanctions and Iran’s uranium enrichment capacity and the number of its centrifuge machines make up the main stumbling blocks to the nuclear talks.
