Iran offered to stop killing British troops in Iraq if Britain dropped objections to its nuclear program


 

A BBC documentary, to be broadcast tomorrow, reveals that Iranian agents met with British diplomats in London, Berlin, and Paris in 2005 and offered to stop attacks against British soldiers by Iraqi militias it controlled, if the West would stop attempting to block Iran’s nuclear program. London rejected the offer, made when roadside bomb attacks against British and American troops were at their height, and Iran resumed its nuclear program. Iran has always denied arming and training insurgent militias in Iraq.
