DUBAI 00000438 001.2 OF 002


(U) The following are translations of comments from IRIG
officials on nuclear-related topics during the period October 13
to 14.

OCTOBER 14

-------------------

- FM Mottaki On Secretary Clinton's Iran Comments (IRNA):

[Question: What is the IRIG position re comments made by the
Russian and US Foreign Ministers]:

"Clinton's positions are inconsistent with the prevailing
realities and with the results obtained from the Geneva talks
and methods such as this dual track are models that have lost
their luster and which lack utility. We suggest that Clinton
adopt some realism and refrain from repeating the fruitless
slogans of the Bush era."

[in reference to Iran's proposed package]:

"Iran's proposed package and that which was obtained between the
meetings of the Geneva conference can move the sides towards new
grounds in the light of justice and constructive discussions."

OCTOBER 13

--------------------

- Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission
Rapporteur Kazem Jalali to reporters (ISNA):

[On Secretary Clinton's Russia Visit]:

"Some countries are trying to rally an alliance against Iran
and/or taking steps to create conditions of a psychological war
and a negative atmosphere against Iran and negotiations. These
actions are not realistic and we don't accept using tricks and
the media to create such an alliance.. those days are gone. In
its package Iran has stressed that we can find a common way
forward to solve regional and international problems."

[On Common US-Israel Joint Military Exercises]:

Jalili emphasized that the behavior of the Zionist Regime in
threatening Iran with military attack and the silence of the
international community was undiplomatic and inconsistent with
international standards, adding that]: "Iran sees all these
actions as political bluffs and we have the necessary
preparedness to counter any aggression.. the Zionist Regime is
too vulnerable to wish to attack us and if such an act is to
occur we will stand against it.. US-Zionist Regime Joint
Military Exercises are to the detriment of the US and are
inconsistent with [President] Obama's slogan of 'change' and
indicates that the Zionist Regime has a decisive role in
American policy."

DUBAI 00000438 002.2 OF 002

[On the Fordo Installation]: Jalali said that members of the
National Security Commission would be inspecting Fordo in the
near future.

- AEOI Announces Creation of Two New Medical Isotopes
(AEOI/Dowlat):

AEOI announced the production of two new medical isotopes in the
Nuclear Science and Technology Research Center, against the
backdrop of a sales embargo of special medical isotopes to Iran.
These medical isotopes are in the final stages of approval for
use and will start mass production as soon as permission is
received from the Health Ministry.
