Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi to Journalists Asking about UCF Project: "What Do You Care?"

The following are excerpts from a press conference with Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi, which aired on Iranian Channels 1 and 2 on July 31, 2005.

Reporter: What will the scope of the (UCF) activity in Esfahan be at the beginning? Will it have full or partial capacity?

Asefi: What do you care?

[ OXEN: Because you're building a NUCLEAR BOMB!?! ]

Female reporter: I'll repeat my colleague's question...

Asefi: Go ahead, please...

Female reporter: ... regarding the UCF in Esfahan. Will its activity start at full or partial capacity, in order to show that the suspension...

Asefi: He asked, and I already said it is of no interest to you.

Female reporter: Please tell us, it might interest us.

Asefi: No. I know it is of no interest to you.

Reporter: Regarding the IAEA inspectors stationed in Tehran, when the UCF activity starts in Esfahan, will the inspectors be there, or did the Iranians plan a special ceremony to mark the start of activity?

Asefi: No. If by "special ceremony" you mean handing out cake and candy, then we have no such thing.

I'm sure Kofi Anna will send over Elbaradei ASAP.

I mean you'd think since Iran is pissing in the face of the IAEA & the UN they might want to, oh I don't know, ENFORCE agreements Iran has made.

Wait I don't know why I just typed that, this is the UN and Iran we're talking about. Neither of which does what they've agreed in the past to do.

I need more coffee.........

has the clip if you'd like to watch it. #787
