Britain is sweating over information transferred to the UK that was stolen from the Iranian nuclear archive by the Mossad earlier this year, the British Times newspaper reported Monday.
One of the documents seen by The Times handed over to London is a memorandum that formally hands responsibility for the production of weapons-grade enriched uranium to the Iranian defense ministry.
The document is one of 100,000 files that were swept from a nondescript but highly secured warehouse in Tehran in January and spirited out of the country, all within one night.
It significantly raises the pressure on Europe to end the JCPOA nuclear deal with Iran, inasmuch as it proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that the entire agreement was based on a lie, and continues on the same premise.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lands Monday in Germany to meet with Chancellor Angela Merkel before heading in the evening to Paris for his next set of talks with President Emmanuel Macron. On Wednesday he is scheduled to speak with Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May. At all three venues the discussions will focus on the same point: “What Iran told the International Atomic Energy Agency about its capacities was almost comical compared to what we have here,” said a senior Israeli intelligence officer involved in analyzing the captured Iranian documents.
The memorandum that was shown to The Times was, according to Israeli intelligence, dated to 2001, and authorized the military to take over the task of enriching uranium hexafluoride (UF6) by centrifuges, from 3 percent to more than 90 percent. The document was signed on behalf of the Iranian army by Amir Daryaban Ali Shamkami, currently the secretary of Iran’s national security council and the military adviser to Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
