Iran Regime Increased Isolation


US House

By Pooya Stone

The Iranian regime is becoming increasingly isolated on the international stage because of the mullahs’ malign activities, with some particularly hard blows being levied in the past two weeks.

First, the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency urged the regime to allow the agency access to two suspected former nuclear sites and to cooperate with inspectors.

Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), welcomed this resolution to increase pressure on the regime but warned that Iran has never given up their pursuit of nuclear weapons, since signing the deal in 2015 and so the international community should immediately intervene.

Then, the US House of Representatives passed Resolution 374, which asks for action to counter the regime’s threats and “recognizes the rights of the Iranian people and their struggle to establish a democratic, secular, and non-nuclear republic of Iran”.

Finally, the United Nations Human Rights Council extended the mandate of Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran Javaid Rehman.

The US has also been ramping up pressure on Iran in a multitude of smaller ways, including:

  • making the Iranian government’s terrorism a big part of America’s 2019 terrorism report and referring to the regime as a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” for the funding of terrorist proxy groups
  • presenting a draft resolution to the UN Security Council about ratifying the unlimited extension of the regime’s arms embargo, which is set to expire in October, and promising a second plan to activate the automatic trigger mechanism in Security Council Resolution 2231 to reinstate all sanctions
  • sanctioned four steel, aluminum, and iron companies in the regime’s metals sector, including one subsidiary of Mobarakeh Steel Company — Iran’s largest steel manufacturer

The regime is terrified about the extension of sanctions, so it has threatened “retaliatory actions” like withdrawing from the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which would be akin to suicide for the regime, even according to their own experts, as it could lead to military action against the regime.

Davoud Hermidas-Bavan, one of the regime’s experts, told the state-run Aftab news website: “Ending the relationship with the IAEA paves the way for wider sanctions and Iran[’s regime] will face tougher decisions [by the international community]. In my opinion, leaving the NPT is a big mistake and will lead the [regime] to undesirable results.”

The regime uses its vast resources to continue its warmongering policies, while the Iranian people are fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, which has so far killed over 63,000 people.
