Rajavi urged UN to condemn mullahs' terrorist attack against Iranian Resistance

Mr. Massoud Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, wrote a letter to Mr. Kofi Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations, addressing the false claims made by the mullahs' UN representative about the Iranian Resistance's "armed cross border attacks"... "from the Iraqi soil."

Mr. Rajavi said in his letter that the allegations are a bid to justify the regime's terrorist operations against the Iranian Resistance's bases and centers in Iraq and an effort to prepare the grounds for further acts of terrorism in future.

The NCR President said these fabrications come only two weeks after the mullahs' criminal attack with weapons of mass destruction against the office of the Mojahedin in Baghdad which led to the death of one civilian and dozens more were wounded.

Mr. Rajavi emphasized that the uprisings and social unrest in Iran and the Mojahedin's extensive clashes throughout the country with the regime's Guards Corps, particularly in the provinces of Kermanshah, Ilam and Khuzistan, have nothing to do with Iraq. The regime has launched a campaign of mass arrests in Tehran and other cities to prevent further spread of social unrest.

The President of the NCR asked the UN Secretary General and Security Council members to condemn the anti-human regime's criminality against the Iranian Resistance in Baghdad in which it used weapons of mass destruction in a city center. He urged the UN authorities to prevent the regime's taking advantage of the international community's silence to continue perpetrating its crimes. Mr. Rajavi also asked for immediate measures to save the lives of those arrested in recent weeks.

Mr. Rajavi concluded his letter to the Secretary General by saying: The experience of the past 17 years shows that this regime is incapable of reform. As long as it is in power, Iran will be under repression and the region engulfed in terrorism and fundamentalism. The time has come for the U.N. Security Council to adopt binding measures against this regime, imposing an oil and arms embargo on this regime and do not allow it to use the wealth of the Iranian people against their interests and against peace and stability in the region and the world.
