Iranian MP Acknowledges Regime’s Export of Terror Taking Toll on People

London, 20 June – On Monday June 17, Ghasem Mirza Neko, a Member of the Iranian parliament, called the “export of revolution” and “waging war against the world” as reasons for the tough situation faced by ordinary Iranians inside the country. Apparently, this was a reaction to the critics of hard conditions inside Iran.

“When you want to live in a cave, when you want to fight the whole world and export the revolution to everywhere, you have to accept hardships, not just for 14 years, but for much longer than that.”

The word “export of revolution” is a reference to a speech by regime founder Ruhollah Khomeini in the first year of the 1979 revolution, which overthrew the Shah’s monarchy. Iranian officials, especially the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) commanders use this term to justify Tehran’s export of terrorism and fundamentalism to neighboring countries, according to Iran experts.

According to both domestic and international institutes, this year, Iran’s economy growth reached minus five percent and the inflation rate increased by 30 percent.

On the other hand, tensions between Iran, the U.S. and regional states have increased after Iranian forces sabotaged oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Meanwhile, Instex, a European financial instrument that was supposed to allow Tehran to circumvent U.S. sanctions on its banking and oil sector, has not yet become operational.

U.S. president Donald Trump offered unconditioned negotiations with Tehran, but Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei refused this offer during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tehran.
