Strasbourg, Dec. 15 – The Iranian opposition leader Maryam Rajavi was the keynote speaker at a meeting of the members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

Rajavi addressed some 200 MEPs, their assistants and other political personalities during a session, entitled “The Future of Iran: Oppression or Democracy,” that was organised by “Friends of a Free Iran”.

Rajavi was received by Alejo Vidal-Quadras, the EP First Vice-President, Paulo Casaca and Struan Stevenson, co-Presidents of the “Friends of a Free Iran”.

“The theocracy ruling Iran has reached new frontiers in abusing human rights at home and – by virtue of increasing meddling in Iraq and pursuit of nuclear weapons – has emerged as the greatest challenge to the international community. Responding to this challenge is vital not only for our people but for global peace and tranquillity”, Rajavi said.

Rajavi also called for the removal of the terrorist tag on the main Iranian opposition group, the People’s Mojahedin, describing it as “a political obstacle to change in Iran by the Iranian people and resistance”. “Removing this unjust label is necessary for change and the creation of democratic Iran”, added the Iranian opposition leader.

Several European legislators, including the Rt. Hon. Lord Slynn of Hadley and Morten Hoglund, the Norwegian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee member also attended the meeting.

In part of his speech, Lord Slynn said the European Union’s recent agreement with Tehran to keep the Mojahedin in its list of terrorist organisations in return for Tehran suspending its nuclear enrichment activities was morally and legally unjustifiable.
