Iran Violating UN Sanction on Nuclear Technology

As nuclear negotiations continue, Iran is actively seeking to procure nuclear technology through blacklisted companies in violation of UN sanctions.

Iran is actively seeking nuclear technology through blacklisted companies in violation of UN sanctions, Britain warned the UN according to a confidential report. The P5+1 and Iran are working out the final details of an agreement intended to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

“The UK government informed the panel on April 20, 2015 that it ‘is aware of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network which has been associated with Iran’s Centrifuge Technology Company (TESA) and Kalay Electric Company (KEC),’” said the report, which was seen by the AFP. “Given the late communication, the panel could not independently investigate the above information.”

KEC was blacklisted by the UN because it is a shell company used by Iran to conceal its nuclear program. Until 2002, when operations moved to Natanz, KEC facilities served as the primary site for Iranian centrifuge R&D. TESA was involved in the production of Iranian centrifuges, which they operated at KEC. In 2003, the IAEA asked to inspect the site, and was told that KEC manufactured watches.

In response to the report, US State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said, “We remain concerned about their procurement, taken steps to designate entities for procurement in the recent past.”

Nevertheless, nuclear negotiations with Iran continue despite this and other signs of bad faith on the part of Iran since the signing of the framework agreement.

Iran has said it will not allow its military sites to be inspected by nuclear inspectors, and insists that all sanctions be dropped as soon as a nuclear agreement is signed.  It calls for death to America and Israel at official events.

Russia has decided to proceed with the sale of air defense systems that could be used to protect Iranian nuclear facilities from airstrikes.

So, one would think that Israel would have to strike Iran's nuclear facilities before the Russian protection system is installed and operational. Anyone have any idea how long that would take?
