روزنامه حکومتی جمهوری اسلامی: "تحريم را ما شروع كنيم"، به دادن باج های کلان به کشورهای اروپايی برای جلب حمایت و همکاری آنها با رژیم تهران اعتراف کرد و نوشت "آقاي شيراک نمي تواند هم با دشمنان ما برقصد و هم به ما چشمک بزند و از سفره هاي تمام ايرانيان سهمي را غارت كند."
Confessions of huge bribes to Europeans: "Mr. Chirac cannot dance with our enemies and at the same time wink in our direction and all the while pillage from the share of all Iranians."
"Mr. Chirac cannot dance with our enemies and at the same time wink in our direction and all the while pillage from the share of all Iranians."
The regime-run newspaper Jomhuri’yeh Islami in an article entitled "We ought to be the ones who start the sanctions", admitted to major bribes paid to European countries to attract their support and cooperation with Tehran’s regime, writing: "Mr. Chirac cannot dance with our enemies and at the same time wink in our direction and all the while pillage from the share of all Iranians."
This newspaper added: "There are new development in the action against the case of the Islamic republic’s peaceful nuclear activities. Britain, France and Germany’s "fact-finding committees" would visit Iran with various excuses, in order to find a proper solution for interaction with the Islamic Republic; later as mediators, they tried to wangle unilateral concessions from us and in return made baseless commitments and now they not only threaten us but they bellow louder than the United States. No one has forgotten Jacques Chirac’s nuclear threatens [against us] in those hot summer days. France which has not yet corrected it’s position, never did explain that situation and never did apologize and has taken up an attitude with Iran that so far not even America has dared to take, in addressing us. Today France is on the list of countries that has a direct role in the draft resolution against us and in order to resolve it’s issues with the U.S. during recent years has tried to make Iran the scapegoat."The newspaper continued: "The importance of emphasis on this point is to know that France, in recent years has most benefited from the lucrative Iranian market and they are still trying to grab the biggest share of the delicious Iranian economic cake for themselves. Paris knows that with the 25 billion euro investment in Iran over the past 15 years it has claimed a remarkable place within Iran’s economy but we have to make Paris leaders comprehend that "double dealing is not on". Mr. Chirac cannot dance with our enemies and at the same time wink in our direction and all the while pillage from the share of all Iranians. The circumstances over the oil and gas contracts and their car manufacturing is a subject that if scrutinized clearly shows nothing more than a total unilateral profit off of Iran and Iranians by the French. A more than 60% return on gas contracts with Iran, usually whets the appetite of the always hungry French and in relation to the French automobile manufacturing contracts, despite their commitments, they have not been willing to leave the exporting to Iranians and once again, in their unilateral manner of dealing, Iranians merely put the company’s marketing in the hands of the opportunist French. France with the presence of a lucrative market in Iran has established a cozy racket. In fact Paris with it’s ever-growing and clearly reckless presence in Iran’s marketplace is trying to simultaneously safeguard its’ interests both inside and outside Iran. And meanwhile, precisely it is with these concessions that France remains the only country that has made the most insulting and vicious atomic threat against Iran. If no problem arises from the sanctions then Paris will certainly profit from its most lucrative market in Iran, further filling its’ bulging pockets and if there are sanctions, it will find a way to chisel the United States for it’s economic losses and stroke Washington for concessions. This is exactly the reason why Paris should be warned and let them know that we’ve seen Mr. Chirac and his aides’ hand and that we are cognizent that they lost the necessary qualifications for a broad and unlimited presence on the Iranian market a long time ago. By pushing France out of the the profitable Iranian market, let’s show others that political and economic ties with Iran requires accountability and the special rules and regulations must be observed to the letter. That Mr. Chirac made an atomic threat and participated in organizing sanctions against Iran, simultaneously reaching his hand onto the Iranian table is definitely unacceptable and intolerable.”
