Iran Rebuffs EU On Nukes

Tehran rebuffs EU on nukes

TEHRAN -- Iran yesterday rejected the European Union's offer of incentives in return for a suspension of its nuclear-fuel work, paving the way for a confrontation that could lead to U.N. sanctions against the Islamic Republic. The EU said its proposals aimed to allow Iran access to nuclear technology, but block work that could help make an atomic bomb. If Tehran resumed nuclear work, the EU said it would back U.S. calls to refer Iran to the United Nations for sanctions. "The proposals are unacceptable, and we reject them," senior Iranian nuclear negotiator Hossein Mousavian said.

Bottom line: The Islamic Republic cannot be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon—period. They are determined to do so. Iran is on a collision course with the West.
