Iranian and Russian representatives convened on Wednesday to discuss the expansion of nuclear cooperation between their two countries, Iranian state-run Mehr News Agency reported.

Mehdi Sanaei, the Iranian ambassador to Moscow, met with Nicolai Spassky, deputy head of Russia’s Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation, to review the process of nuclear cooperation. The meeting covered the current status of the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Protocol of Action (JCPOA) and plans for Russia to assist Iran in the construction of two new nuclear power plants in Bushehr.

Russia and Iran had agreed last November that Moscow would help finance the construction of the Bushehr-2 and Bushehr-3 plants.

The two officials also discussed the launching of isotope-producing units in the Fordow nuclear site within the framework of the JCPOA.

In September, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said that the Russians had expressed their readiness to upgrade Iran’s centrifuges for the purpose of producing isotopes.

    Read Ezekiel 38:18-23. God will plead with Gog, that would be all those surrounding you and attempting to annihilate you….a firing of warning shots over their bow. And those who do not take heed will suffer dire consequences. God is separating the wheat from the chaff and starting the process of uprooting the tares. This will occur worldwide.

    I wouldn’t worry to much about this. If Putin gets under Gods skin, God will track him down and have a one on one with him. God is laughing in heaven knowing that a 10 point on the Richter scale with Iran as ground zero will solve this dellimma in due time. The dellimma has not sufficiently ripened to the point of Devine intervention. If something of that sort was to occur at this time Obama would quickly recalculate, reshuffle the deck and come at Israel with another strategy. God wants all his eggs in one basket, right now Obama sees Iran as the goose that will lay the golden nuke. He staged an attack against Russia with rebels on its borders, knowing at that time what the Russian response would be. Sanctions would follow and the Russians response would be to draw closer to Iran. The Russians are playing into his hand. Obama is playing this whole world like a fiddle for the advancement of the caliphate. All the while trying to appear that he is attempting to destroy those who are responsible for advancing it. He is a cameleon who cloaks himself into whatever form it takes to deceive those he is communicating with. Daniel describes home to the T.
