Father of Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, who was killed in a January 2012 car explosion along with his driver in north Tehran, has expressed his unhappiness about the nuclear deal between Iran and the five permanent permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany (P5+1). He believes that the efforts of his son and his former colleagues are left in a precarious state as reports emerge of some scientists being re-assigned. He added that any future or permanent deal should include finding the culprits behind his son’s assassination.
Hossein Naqavi Hosseini, the spokesman of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, has claimed “the Americans don’t want calm to be established in Iraq, because [if there is calm] relations between Iran and Iraq will be strengthened.”
He continued: “The Americans through their investment in terrorist groups and equipping of these individuals with the latest weaponry, have the intention of creating insecurity in Iraq, so that Iranian pilgrims cannot enter Iraqi soil on the brink of Arabaein [the Shi’i ceremony which is commemorated 40 days after the martyrdom of the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, Imam Hossein] … In line with the government of Saudi Arabia in secret activities with covert and widespread financial support for Baathist elements, they have the objective of targeting the Shia, and evacuating Iraq’s towns completely of the existence of Shias.”
