Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the leader of the Iranian Resistance described the nuclear deal framework agreement reached between the 5+1 countries and the Iranian regime as a retreat by the mullahs and ‘a step toward drinking the chalice of nuclear poison’ but warned that ‘a statement of generalities, lacking Khamenei approval, will never block the path to the regime obtaining nuclear weapons.’
According to the statement published by the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), Mrs Rajavi said: “The regional coalition against the expansion and aggression of the religious fascism ruling Iran in Yemen, the crippling impact of the sanctions and Iranian society’s explosive state as well as successive warnings by the United States Congress that it will confront this regime and will ratchet up the sanctions, finally compelled the clerical regime to reluctantly take one more step back after 16 months of talks, which had gone into overtime in Lausanne.”
She said this is a step taken by the mullahs in Tehran ‘toward drinking the chalice of nuclear poison, this retreat was prompted by fear and pressure and blatantly contradicts the foundations and guidelines the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei had announced personally two weeks ago.’
However, Rajavi added: “a statement of generalities, lacking Khamenei’s signature and official approval, will never block the path to the regime obtaining nuclear weapons nor prevent its intrinsic deception. “
The NCRI believes the “continuing negotiations with the religious fascism in the framework of appeasement will not make the region and the world secure from the threat of nuclear proliferation.”
“Compelling the regime to abide by United Nations Security Council resolutions is simply the only way to prevent the mullahs from obtaining nuclear weapons.”
“The religious fascism ruling Iran has heavily invested in obtaining nuclear weapons to guarantee its survival. The search for an alternative to fundamentalism and the central banker of terrorism within this regime will get nowhere. The alternative is a democratic and non-nuclear Iran,” the statement said.
