Canada ‘Deeply Skeptical’ about Iran Deal, Keeps Sanctions

The Canadian government is “deeply skeptical” about Iran’s agreement to temporarily freeze its nuclear program, and hence intends to keep its sanctions against the regime firmly in place until the new deal shows results, the Toronto Star reports.

Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird said Canada would be watching Iran closely over the coming weeks and months.

“We have made-in-Canada foreign policy,” he told reporters on Sunday, adding: “We think past actions best predict future actions. And Iran has defied the United Nations Security Council, it has defied the International Atomic Energy Agency. Simply put Iran has not earned the right to have the benefit of the doubt.”

Baird repeated a caution first sounded by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, saying, “A nuclear Iran is not just a threat to Canada, or its allies, it would also seriously damage the integrity of decades of work for nuclear non-proliferation. It would provoke other neighboring states to develop their own nuclear deterrent.”

And so, Canadian sanctions remained firmly in place as of Sunday.

“Effective sanctions have brought the regime to present a more moderate front and open the door to negotiations,” Baird said. “The Iranian people deserve the freedom and prosperity that they have been denied for all too long by the regime’s nuclear ambitions. Until then Canadian sanctions will remain tough and will remain in full force.”

On Sunday, Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz, whose office is monitoring Iran’s nuclear program, said there is no reason for the world to be celebrating the deal signed in Geneva, which is based on “Iranian deception and Western self-delusion.”

  1. Canada please get warmer.

  2. Too bad this impeccable logic was lost on Barack Obamination.

  3. Thank you Mr.Baird and Prime Minister Harper for trying to prevent Armageddon with a Nuclear Iran. Thank You.

  4. Iran could never be trusted without the Nukes–And guaranteed to Obliterate Israel and the Great Satan -U.S.-with the Nukes. Thank YOU.

  5. Gil Gilman says:

    Once again, Canada has shown itself more worthy than the U.S. I won't say more intelligent, since intelligence has its limitations. Intelligence is nothing without honor, and the Obama administration has none.

  6. Gil Gilman says:

    I didn't mean to pick exclusively on Obama in this. The Congressional Tea Porky is no better.

  7. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG. Obama will go down in history as the president who destroyed his own country and brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.

    Munich 1938 Vs Geneva 2013

    In summation:

    The 2013 deal struck/signed between the Chamberlains, USA, EU, France, German, Britain, China and Russia with Iran is worse than the Munich 'peace in our time' deal that was signed in 1938 between Nazi-Hitler and Neville Chamberlain BECAUSE we are talking about nuclear arsenal against Israel, which is a one nuclear bomb country!

    Israel will prevail but will have fight for its life on all fronts, political, military, media, psychological!

  8. God bless Canada as at least they have shown concern over Iran and the big powers agreement.

  9. Elisabeth Soros says:

    I am so proud Canadian! God Bless our Government!

  10. isi Weinberger says:

    Canada bless you
