DEBKAfile Exclusive Report March 3, 2014, 4:13 PM (GMT+02:00)

As Washington and the Europeans continued to decry Russian military aggression, the US and Russians quietly began intense negotiations - through Berlin - on a deal for settling the Ukraine dispute, debkafile reports.

US asks Pakistan to halt nuclear transfer to Saudis in respect of talks with Iran
DEBKAfile DEBKA Weekly February 18, 2014, 10:29 AM (GMT+02:00)

Trapped in a paradox, the Obama administration asks Pakistan to hold back its nuclear arms transfer to Saudi Arabia to avoid upsetting the six-power nuclear talks with Iran. This is hugely ironic.

Iran has hundreds of these WMDs
Seven loopholes favoring a nuclear Iran in deal signed by the world powers
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis November 24, 2013, 4:51 PM (GMT+02:00)

The first preliminary nuclear deal the six world powers (US, Russia, China, UK, France and German) signed with Iran before dawn Sunday, Nov. 24, failed to address the most suspicious elements of Iran’s nuclear program, i.e. its clandestine military elements. The expanded UN inspections were not applied, for instance, to Iran’s concealed nuclear sites - or even Parchin where Iran is suspected of testing nuclear-related explosions. Israel, the Gulf states and others therefore fear Iran’s nuclear program will continue to advance. debkafile lists seven of the most glaring loopholes.

The Iranian team faced the six world powers in Geneva Thursday, Nov. 21, with strict orders not to give ground on the two major sticking points for a first-step deal on their nuclear program: The heavy water reactor under construction at Arak for plutonium production and Iran’s “right” to uranium enrichment. debkafile: If Tehran wins those two points, any other concessions it may offer are worthless, because Iran will be left in possession of two optional nuclear weaponizing tracks instead of one - plutonium as well as enriched uranium.
