Obama, China to Work On Potential Sanctions Against Iran


www.foxnews.com

The White House
says President Barack Obama and Chinese President Hu Jintao are instructing their diplomats to work
on potential sanctions to make clear to Iran the cost of continued nuclear defiance.

China's incremental move toward U.S. ambitions to sanction Iran and Ukraine's plans get rid of highly enriched uranium put some wind in Obama's sails as he presses global leaders to join him in locking down all nuclear materials within four ye

And Chinese spokesman Ma Zhaoxu did not mention sanctions in a statement on Hu's meeting with Obama.



Ma said China hopes all parties will step up diplomatic efforts and seek ways to resolve the Iranian nuclear issue through negotiations.


So China has instructed its diplomats to work hard and be tough with Iran about Iran' nuclear intentions! No bombs! Just medical and civilian energy things! Enrich uranium all you want just don't go the last step and make the bomb!

Hehe! We can all be reassured that Iran will not make the bomb because of Chinese diplomatic pressure

China is on board for Iran sanctions along with other nations!

3-10-10:


Six major world powers have agreed to begin putting together proposed new sanctions against Iran over its suspect nuclear program after China dropped its opposition, U.S. officials said Wednesday. China, long a holdout against fresh international penalties against Iran, signaled its willingness Wednesday to consider a U.N. Security Council sanctions resolution, two U.S. government officials said.


Could China actually be putting some serious pressure on China?

To be honest given the state of the world at the moment, and the great game really does appear to be afoot at the moment with control of the ME the central goal of the game... So I have little to no trust in anything any side says right now...

Having siad that, China is not in a position to really bang heads with the West (aleast not until they have weaned themselves of Western consumerism) so I would expect some outwardly show of solidarity with the West (for the time being at least)

But I do wonder what deals are being wrought behind the scenes and who is being sold out by whom at the moment!

But don't you feel that is the point of the game being played by all sides... every side has to throw their hands up in the air and say they did "all they could" to prevent coming conflict.

Russian media gives totally different news from this. By their words, diplomatic solution is the oly way:

Iran nuclear issue must be resolved by dialogue - China's Jintao

Don't forget that Iran has signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, and also Iran’s nuclear energy program is subject to inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which consistently reports that its inspections find no diversion of enriched uranium to a weapons program. This kinda parallels with Iraq's inspectors not finding any WMDs???

Israel has not signed the treaty and refuses to admit anything about its own nuclear weapons.

Israel should be the one's who have sanctions imposed on them.

A December article by Paul Craig Roberts - was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration questions Israel not being sanctioned:

China is playing down their stance, after its widely reported to been US sided.

China: Sanctions are not a solution




Beijing supports dual-track strategy; Iran: China wouldn't back US.

Tuesday’s statement from Beijing reportedly called for a “dual-track strategy” in which diplomacy and dialogue with Teheran on the issue of its nuclear development and defiant rhetoric would continue as world leaders mull the possibility of sanctions.

"China always believes that dialogue and negotiation are the best way out for the issue. Pressure and sanctions cannot fundamentally solve it," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu was quoted as saying.

Meanwhile on Tuesday, Iran expressed uncertainty over the possibility that China would back new sanctions against it. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said Teheran did not consider Monday's joint statement by Obama and Hu to be Chinese "approval of the US stance and unfair actions."

Obama will not achieve anything as outcome from this meeting. Its doomed to fail from its beginning - Both Iran and Israel is not there - so whats the real talk anyway? There should be bilateral negotiations between those bullies, if there are will to achieve anything by diplomacy.

Russia and China have only one voice in world affairs - dont expect any other outcome from this meeting:

1. They wont back any hard sanctions, no energy sectors sanctions
2. They will demand negotiations
3. Both will warn from using force against Iran

This meeting in Washington is just media game by puppets for stupid crowds

It is just one big stalling game.

Ultimately Iran wins and joins the nuclear club. I just can't see China giving into Obama and placing serious sanctions on Iran.

That is it, entirely! The longer Iran can prolong the closer they are to their goal of becoming nuclear.

A nuclear Iran only puts the world deeper into fear and chaos. Nothing good will result. Even Iran's neighbors abhor a nuclear Iran. No balance of power will result, only further fear, cold war and deadlock.
