Cuba, Venezuela and Malaysia voting against condemning Iran's nuclear capabality!

 *an update*

Malaysia recalls its UN envoy over Iran nuclear voting
 Report by Bernama December 6 2009
KUALA LUMPUR: The Foreign Ministry has recalled Malaysia's permanent representative to the United Nations (UN) in Vienna for consultations over the passing of a resolution on the Iran nuclear issue by the Board of Governors of  the international Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Austria last month.
The ministry's statement here said voting on the matter was not in accordance with government procedures and that was why the representative was recalled. The IAEA Board on Governors on Nov 27 adopted a resolution tabled by Germany on the implementation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Safeguards Agreement and the relevant provisions of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions 1737 (2006); 1747 (2007); 1803 (2008) and 1835 (2008) in Iran.
Malaysia, Cuba and Venezuela voted against the resolution while six countries abstained, one was absent and 25 adopted the resolution. "Malaysia is studying the outcome of the resolution and its implications. We will endeavour to work together with the international community in moving the Iranian nuclear issue forward. "In this regard, we will consult with members of the IAEA Board of Governors and other member states of the United Nations," the statement said. - Bernama.

I say it is good that the government has taken swift in itiative to recalll our permanent reps in Vienna to find out more about how Malaysia voted the way it did on the Iran-Nuclear resolution!  If you ask me I would suspect either this Malaysian permanent representative based in Vienna is either not a learned person of his position or he is working in tandem with the opposition to tarnish the image of Malaysia and directly tarnishing the image of the Prime Minister of this country!  Either way he must be asked to reitre if he could not explain himself properly!
 Previous report
The world will now read it simply as Najib, Castro and Hugo Chavez  trio going against an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) sponsored resolution  made by Germany condemning Iran for its uranium enrichment program. 
Sources told BarkingMagpie that the United States of America was a tad confused with Malaysia's stance to vote together with Cuba and Venezuela against the condemnation of Iran nuclear technology which can lead to making nuclear bombs.
"While the USA could easily understood  Cuba's  and Venezuela's stance, but we were puzzled and we were wondering if Prime Minister Najib knew about the voting against the resolution," said this source.
As a Malaysian I would not like my prime minister to be associated with the likes of Castro or the firebrand anti-West Hugo Chavez,  We are against the proliferation of nuclear armament so therefore we must condemn countries that does not adhere to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty  in which Malaysia is a member. For another point of view on this issue please read Bigdog here... Read below:

 "Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Monday criticized the recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution against Iran as well as those countries who cast "unjust and discriminatory" votes against the country, the official IRNA news agency reported.
"The recent resolution issued by the IAEA against Iran has weakened the international body," Mottaki was quoted as saying.
"We hope these countries voting against Iran will review their attitude wisely," Mottaki made the remark in a press conference in Tehran.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governors passed a resolution during a meeting on Friday in Vienna, calling for the "full cooperation" of Iran to clarify all outstanding issues involving its nuclear program.
It was reported that the resolution contained a strong call on Tehran to implement the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, as well as all the transparency measures the IAEA needed to restore confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.
"We have lauded Malaysia, Cuba and Venezuela for their brave votes and will also take into consideration those which abstained in the voting," said Mottaki.
IAEA's Friday move was the first adoption of a resolution against Iran after the one adopted in February 2006. The 35-member board of governors of IAEA passed the resolution with 25 voting for, six abstentions, one absence while Cuba, Venezuela and Malaysia voting against.
"We cannot tolerate discrimination in international relations under any circumstances," he said, adding that "if there is a right for every country in an international treaty or convention, it should be applied to all."
Western powers suspected Iran of attempting to build nuclear weapons, but Tehran said its nuclear program was aimed at generating nuclear energy for civilian purposes.

You notice how many Iranians we now have in Malaysia? Just take a walk along Jalan Bukit Bintang after 12.00 midnight and witness Arab Street. With FDI gone to the dogs, the country needs the foreign currency. How nice; from "look East" we now have a "look Middle East" policy.

Malaysia needs also to "be seen to be" when it comes to global issues involving Muslim countries.

KS Cheah said...

Hehe...Malaysia Boleh!!! Is this an indication of how Malaysia is now being managed? Envoy must be a kaki bodek who thought it was a blanket policy by the government to support any Islamic country. Toadying by civil servants has reached new heights in our country. A result of BTN brainwashing perhaps...we have "robots" who cannot even tie their own shoelaces.

I wonder how the western plans to solved the increased of energy demand without share the nuclear energy technology with the rest of the world. Launch a war against each country that decide to start their development is not the answer.

If there was an award for “Sell-Out Journalist of the Year” it would go hands down to The Sun’s Ng Kee Seng.
Ng Kee Seng is now the new Executive Editor of The Star after his recent blatantly once-sided articles and news stories in favour of Ong Tee Keat and in complete ignorance of all other points of view.
Leslie Lau of the MalaysianInsider was spot on when he referred to Ng as an "undistinguished veteran journalist".

Even if the original brief from Wismaputra was to vote against the resolution the Envoy should have advised for Malaysia to "Abstain' if we had strong views.He would have known well in advance those countries that were going to vote against the resolution.Further, the US, UK, and Germany must have worked on us for months to get us to support the resolution. Therefore, I am inclined to believe that our vote in Geneva may have been a considered move. And in the event, it is the incumbent duty of our Envoy to expalin to our government the implications of our decision before the vote was taken.Ramalx

The Malaysian permanent reps must be recalled and be changed to a more level headed person that can take order and not embarrassed the country!

Now that Dr. Mahathir has attacked the PM, are you man enough to defend him?

The last time when you took down the article which rightfully pointed out the hypocrisy in awarding Pinochet our highest order, the whole world saw that you could be BULLIED by a small fry like Big Dog.

I went to his blog and I kicked him and his entire bunch of psycopathic supporters. These guys are nobodies. They are yesterday's news . The stain on the carpet.

And further more, they have the intellectual capacity of a door knob. I don't like you, but your piece on Sri Menanti column was very good - a mark of an accomplished reader. You are certainly not stupid.

So imagine how pathetic it seems when that overgrown canine could push you around!

I have explained why it is ludicrous to support Iran on this matter. Only a fool will vote against this - and we certainly have a lot of fools here:

Nuclear techology is so good. We can use it many ways, even for panggang ayam or bakar satay. Iran can probably use it for nasi beryani. Why should Israel have the bomb? Because it got no satay or beryani. Hidup Najib.
