Denmark says Iran making ‘serious mistake’


AFP: Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller on Tuesday described Iran’s decision to resume sensitive nuclear research as a “serious mistake.” COPENHAGEN, Jan 10, 2006 (AFP) – Danish Foreign Minister Per Stig Moeller on Tuesday described Iran’s decision to resume sensitive nuclear research as a “serious mistake.”

“The (Danish) government is watching the development of Iran’s nuclear programme with very great concern,” Moeller said in a statement.

He said Tehran had “sent the international community a powerful bad signal” by announcing the resumption of work connected to enrichment of uranium.

The minister added that the move, coming at a time when “confidence in Iran’s atomic programme is already limited,” violated an accord with EU negotiating states Britain, France and Germany.

He went on to say that he strongly hoped “Iran sees sense and suspends this very sensitive part of its nuclear programme.”

“Otherwise, this affair could well end up before the United Nations Security Council… (where) Denmark would work with others to make sure Tehran fully cooperates with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

“International checks and strict surveillance are needed to make sure that Iran’s nuclear programme is only used for civilian ends.”

Iran’s ambassador to Copenhagen was summoned to the foreign ministry Tuesday to be told of Denmark’s position.
