Lord Carlile: UK must endorse struggle for a democratic, non-nuclear Iran


Lord Alex Carlile, a member of the United Kingdom’s House of Lords from the Liberal Democrat Party, has called on UK Prime Minister David Cameron to endorse the resistance movement to the mullahs’ regime in Iran.

Lord Carlile’s appeal came as Cameron was meeting with other world leaders in the G7 Summit in Germany.

Whether or not the UK remains part of the EU, and whether or not Prime Minister Cameron succeeds in renegotiating the UK’s terms under a new EU Treaty, the issue of Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and Middle Eastern hegemony will remain an important issue for Europe, Lord Carlile wrote in the HUffington Post.

Lord Carlile pointed out that on June 13, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) will hold its annual Paris rally “in support of the Iranian people’s democratic aspirations, and in support of the political opposition to Iran’s religious dictatorship”.

“Attendance at last year’s massive event was in the tens of thousands, comprising Iranian expatriates, international activists, and political figures from five continents, including members of Parliament from the UK, France, and Germany. The international participants are politically diverse, representing cross party panellists often diametrically opposed on most other political issues but united in the fundamental cause of Iranian freedom. The event stands each year as a unique declaration of unity of purpose in confronting the Iranian regime, not least on its ongoing human rights abuses, its repression of political dissent, and its intrinsic resistance to internal moderation.

The list of confirmed speakers at this year’s rally includes a former Italian foreign minister, three former French officials, and three former German officials, one of whom also served as vice president of the European Commission, Lord Carlile said.

Declarations of support for the Iranian opposition and for freedom and democracy for Iran by the British, French, and German governments would have a “powerful” effect, he added.

Cameron and other EU leaders must “recognise publicly the Iranian people’s desire for change and endorse their struggle for a free, democratic, and truly non-nuclear Iran”.
