PARIS – The European Union’s “policy of appeasement” towards Iran is only strengthening Tehran’s ruling clerics, the main Iranian opposition group said Friday as it urged UN Security Council action on Tehran’s nuclear programme.

The exiled National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), based in Paris, said it had sent a letter to EU foreign ministers and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana warning them that Europe was playing into Iran’s hands.

“By taking advantage of Europe’s policy of appeasement, the clerical regime is today putting on a show of force and challenging Europe itself,” the body’s “chairman of the foreign affairs committee”, Mohammed Mohaddessin, said in the letter.

He said Tehran was intent on obtaining nuclear weapons, “considered by the clerical leaders as the sole strategic guarantee for their regime’s survival”, and also wanted “greater economic, political and security concessions from Western countries.”

He added that the European Union should move to “abandoning the futile negotiations with Tehran, referring the mullahs’ nuclear file to the United Nations Security Council and removing the unjust terrorist tag against the People’s Mujahedeen.”

The NCRI is the political arm of the People’s Mujahedeen (MEK), which has been fighting the Islamic government in Tehran since the mid-1980s.

The MEK has been branded a terrorist organisation in both the United States and the European Union.
