West must halt Iran’s ambition to build nuclear bomb, Rajavi tells MEPs

-

The West must ‘show resolve’ if it is to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb, the leader of the Iranian Resistance has told a conference the European Parliament.

Maryam Rajavi also told MEPs and dignitaries that cooperating with the regime in Tehran in the battle against terror group ISIS was a ‘recipe for disaster’.

The West must ‘show resolve’ if it is to stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb, the leader of the Iranian Resistance has told a conference the European Parliament.

Maryam Rajavi also told MEPs and dignitaries that cooperating with the regime in Tehran in the battle against terror group ISIS was a ‘recipe for disaster’.

She said in a speech in Brussels on December 10: “This nuclear program enjoys no legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people. According to government figures, 12 million Iranian people are suffering from hunger. They do not want this program to continue.

“The regime is entangled in a destructive power struggle at the top, while Iranian society is deeply discontent and on the verge of another uprising.”

Mrs Rajavi asked why Western governments are not standing up to a regime that is the ‘Godfather of ISIS’ with a record a hundred times worse than them, and insisted European countries had ‘no justification’ for silence in the face of the regime’s oppression.

She also condemned the soaring number of executions and human rights abuses under so-called moderate President Hassan Rouhani, adding: “The regime of velayat-e faqih lacks any capacity to reform. Since Rouhani became President, at least 1,200 have been executed. In the past 25 years, we have not seen as many executions as in the first year of Rouhani’s presidency. Nor have we seen so many opposition members being massacred or taken hostage. Nor have we seen Iranian women being the target of criminal campaigns to this extent.

“Look at the bitter outcomes of European delegations’ visits to Tehran in the past year. The mullahs used each and every one of them to increase executions.

“Now is the time to intensify the pressure on the regime. The mullahs agreed to negotiate due to mounting pressure. They stalled on signing the agreement due to West’s concessions. The only way forward is more pressure and more sanctions.

“There is no light at the end of tunnel of marathon talks. There is a nuclear bomb at the end of the tunnel.”

Mrs Rajavi expressed her abhorrence at the six-year siege against Iranian dissidents in Camp Liberty, in Iraq, and urged the EU to ‘change its policy and show resolve in face of the brutal theocracy ruling Iran’.

She said any new policy should be linked to the improvement of the situation of human rights in Iran, and that the regime’s leaders should face justice for crimes against humanity. The regime should also be forced to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions, halt the uranium enrichment, and accept international inspection of all suspect sites and centers.

The siege on Camp Liberty, especially the medical blockade, should be completely lifted and the Camp Liberty file should be handed over to institutions with no ties to this regime instead of the Iranian regime’s agents, Mrs Rajavi demanded.

Other speakers at the conference included: Howard Dean, former US Presidential candidate and former Chairman of the Democratic Party, and European Parliament legislators including Mairead McGuinness and Ryszard Czarnecki, vice-Presidents of European Parliament; Gerard Deprez, Michèle Alliot-Marie, Struan Stevenson, Jaroslaw Walesa, Marian Harkin, Julie Ward, Tunne Kelam, Eduard Kokan, Richard Ashworth, Petri Savamaa, Wim Van de Camp, Juan Carlos Girauta, Stanislav Polcak, Anthea McIntyre, Janusz Wojciechowski and Anna Záborská.
