Iranians angry and bewildered after French torpedo Geneva nuclear entente

France's role in Geneva talks that ended with no agreement over Tehran's nuclear programme has prompted bewilderment and anger inside Iran.

Iranians, who stayed awake all night to find out whether their negotiators have reached a breakthrough with the west, were disappointed that France was prepared to defy the Americans and block a stopgap deal, and that western sanction would not end any time soon.

The Irna state news agency reported that Iranian businessmen were considering reducing their trade ties with France, saying they no longer considered it as a good partner because of its "adventurist and immature behaviour" at Geneva.

"A group of Tehran-based industrialists held a meeting here on Sunday focusing on reduction of Tehran-Paris trade ties," reported Irna. "They believe that the imbalanced policies of Paris on Tehran have stripped Paris of its status as a good economic partner of Iran."

1. There had to be someone who would put a stop to peace efforts. One of the Western powers.

France seems to have been getting the job lately, in Libya eg.

Sort of how our Dems get to vote with Repubs to ensure enough votes Corporate agenda votes, then next time a few others get the job.

2. Those French Socialists seem to have a real neo-imperial bent.

 

If Iranian business wants to impose de facto sanctions on France, well, so be it.
