Iran said it would resist Western pressure to make what it considered to be excessive concessions in nuclear talks that started on Tuesday, highlighting obstacles that could prevent a historic deal being reached by a Nov. 24 deadline. Read more.

Although Uruguay does not support the general idea of nuclear power, we think that it is childish to impede Iran's use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Iran cannot be trusted. Time and time again Iran has gone back on their word. Nuclear power can be a valuable source of energy provided it is in the right hands. The process of turning enriched uranium from power stations into a nuclear bomb is a small hurdle to overcome. With a nuclear armed Iran the prospect of nuclear war or nuclear terrorism only increases.

Iran should be allowed.

We've been fed stories (mainly by the media) that Iran is some sort of a bully in the Middle East when Iran itself is being bullied.

If Uruguay does not support the general idea of nuclear power why is it investing 10m UYU into research and planning for nuclear electricity?

Research into whether or not it is a good idea. As it stands the use of nuclear energy is (technically) prohibited by law.

Either way, if you are against the idea of it, why bother researching to see if it's a good idea?

To see if it can be done safely. As it stands it's forbidden and is highly unpopular amongst the Uruguayan people.

Japan would not like to see any countries outside of the current security council possessing weapons of mass destruction. Iran cannot, and should not, be allowed to produce nuclear weapons. We respect Iran's right to the creation of nuclear facilities, but we cannot see how enriching uranium can be called 'peaceful'. We respectfully request that Iran cease their activities in pursuing a policy which is hostile in its nature and end goal.

MEXICO

Mexico believes solar power would be a very efficient and alternative source of energy for Iran given its climate and vast deserts.

CANADA

Canada does not believe Iran needs nuclear power yet, and we recommend they consider renewable energy sources or perhaps work in cooperation with other nations to find a safer energy source.

The DPRK believes Iran must resist the ignorant conspiracies of the West and prepare a sufficient nuclear arsenal to prevent American hegemony. We will continue to supply our brothers in Iran with weapons!

This is warmongering from a nation that can barely feed its own population. With enough political and internal turmoil, how can North Korea even consider placing nuclear weaponery before the health and well being of its own people?

The DPRK asks Japan to keep its unsightly nose out of the internal affairs of our glorious nation. We see sufficient armament as paramount to our health and wellbeing to protect ourselves again the plotting of Westerners!

Turkey believes a nuclear weaponized Iran would feed fuel to the fire the Middle East is already burning in. However there should be compromise on the USA side if they want to achieve their goal.

Cyprus believes Iran should not be allowed to use Nuclear Power or develop Nuclear Weapons, as this could further ignite troubles in the Middle East.

Cyprus also suggest Iran should use alternatives, especially Solar Power, given Iran's climate.

New Zealand and Russia: Is it wise for Vietnam to be criticising WMD's when a report suggests you have obtained chemical weapons?

New Zealand and Russia: Is it wise for Vietnam to be criticising WMD's when a report suggests you have obtained chemical weapons?
Vietnam cites its historical conflict with the United States as its reason for supporting the universal elimination of chemical weapons (CW). [29] During Operation Ranch Hand, from 1962 to 1971, the U.S. military used more than 18 million gallons of herbicide in Vietnam. [30] Such herbicides are not scheduled chemicals controlled by the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), and are therefore not considered chemical weapons under international law, but their reported health effects on the Vietnamese population and U.S. soldiers have made their use controversial. [31] In August 2012, the U.S. announced a cleanup effort at a site near Da Nang which is contaminated with dioxin, commonly known as Agent Orange. [32] The cleanup program, lead by USAID, will cost $43 million over four years and the government is considering cleanup efforts at other sites. [33]

Vietnam signed the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons in 1993 and ratified it in 1998. [34] In 2005, Vietnam issued a decree that implemented the CWC. [35] The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has conducted industrial inspections in Vietnam since 2003, and co-hosted capacity-building workshops and seminars in Southeast Asia with Vietnam. [36]

Vietnam's chemical industry, which is composed primarily of non-state sector establishments, accounts for only a small percentage of Vietnam's total industry. [37] Although Vietnam's chemical enterprises depend upon outdated infrastructure and are relatively inefficient, they are capable of producing fertilizers, pesticides and petrochemicals. [38] Vietnam also exports chemicals for industrial use, and has a licensing system in place to support the country's export control obligations under the CWC. The Vietnam Chemicals Agency (Vinachemia) is the implementing agency for Vietnam's CWC commitments, including export licensing. [39] Vietnam is not a participant in the Australia Group (AG), although the group did visit Vietnam as part of its outreach briefing efforts in 2012-2013. [40]
