After multiple requests from followers we investigated the story about the Argentine President accusing the USA of asking Argentina to provide Nuclear fuel to Iran in 2010. This is now a confirmed fact. The video to the right is the portion of her speech at the UN on 9/28/15 where she accuses Gary Samore of coming to her in 2010 to ask for Nuclear fuel for Iran. Cristina Fernandez de Kirchener claims that when she asked for the deal in writing she never heard from Samore again.
From 2009 to 2013, he served as President Barack Obama’s White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), commonly referred to as the WMD “czar”. In the position, Samore “served as the principal advisor to the President on all matters relating to arms control and the prevention of weapons of mass destruction proliferation and WMD terrorism, and coordinated United States government activities, initiatives, and programs to prevent proliferation and WMD terrorism and promote international arms control efforts.” – Wikipedia
You will wonder how we knew. Easy: in 2010 we were visted in Argentina by Gary Samore, at that time the White House’s top advisor in nuclear issues. he came to see us in argentina with a mission, with an objective: under the control of IAEA, the international organization in the field of weapons control and nuclear regulation, Argentia had supplied in the year 1987, during the first democratic government, the nuclear fuel for the reactor known as “Teheran”. Gary Samore had explained to our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hector Timerman, that negotiations were underway for the Islamic Republic of Iran to cease with its uranium enrichment activities or to do it to a lesser extent but Iran claimed that it needed to enrich this Teheran nuclear reactor and this was hindering negotiations. They came to ask us, Argentines, to provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel. Rohani was not in office yet, it was Ahmadinejad’s administration and negotiations had already started.
I remember that the minister of foreign affairs came to see me and relayed the proposal that Samore had brought to me. Timerman had alraedy warned the White House’s envoy that his request would be hard to satisfy in the light of the difficult situation between Argentina and the Islamic Republic of IRan because of the terrorist attack against AMIA in the Argentine Republic occurred on July 18, 1994 and the decision made by the judge in the case to press charges against five Iranian citizens and summon them to appear in court. Against this backdrop, Argentina’s contribution to this negotiation process which, let me repeat, had already reached the year 2010, was impossible.
The minister of foreign affrairs came to see me in my office, and i remember thsi very clearly, and i said that if this request were made in writing and signed, we could, after all, coopoerate, because we believed that the attainment of the non-nuclear proliferation objective was of the utmost importance. You know that Argentina is a member of the select club of nuclear energy producing countries but that we occupy, nonetheless, a leading position in the field of non-proliferation. This means that non-nuclear proliferation is also a matter of governmental interest to us as well.
I said as much to my minister of foreign affairs who in turn relayed this to the White House’s envoy, Gary Samore that we could accept to provide the fuel because it was in the hands of Argentina since 1987 and we also had the technique to produce it in exchange, obviously, for such request to be submitted in writing and signed.
This message was conveyed and I believe that was the last time, after that communication, that our minister of foreign affairs saw Gary Samore.
