Statement by Iranian Resistance's President-elect on EU Council of Ministers' decisions on Iran

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the Iranian Resistance's President-elect, described today's decisions by the European Union to abandon critical dialogue, expel the regime's intelligence and terrorist personnel, ban the sale of weapons, suspend official bilateral ministerial visits, and deny visas to the regime's intelligence agents, as indicative of the righteousness of the Iranian Resistance's positions.

Mrs. Rajavi said these decisions reflected the success of the members and activists of the Resistance to realize the demands of the Iranian people and Resistance.

The Resistance's President-elect stressed that the Iranian nation and the sole democratic alternative to the clerical regime had persistently demanded the international community to halt all forms support for and relations and dealings with the religious dictatorship ruling Iran so as to allow the Iranian people and Resistance to set the record straight with this bloodthirsty regime.

Mrs. Rajavi reiterated that the Iranian people had been made to pay the price of such placating policies and that our Resistance movement had paid a heavy price to ensure the advancement of its righteous stances. The Iranian Resistance will spare no effort to expose and isolate the religious, terrorist dictatorship ruling Iran, she added.

Mrs. Rajavi emphasized that the clerical regime could only survive through repression, the export of terrorism and the plunder of the Iranian people's national wealth. Thus, the lifelines of this sinister monster must be severed in any way possible, she said.

The Iranian Resistance's President-elect urged the Resistance's members, activists and supporters to continue their endeavors at the international level. She called on the international community and the United Nations Security Council to put on their agenda the issue of severing ties with and instituting a comprehensive boycott on the Khomeini regime.

Mrs. Rajavi emphatically called for the reopening of the files on the mullahs' terrorist crimes in different European capitals, including the case of the assassination in Geneva of Professor Kazem Rajavi, the great martyr to the cause of human rights, and the extradition of his murders, and the case of the assassination in Rome of Mohammad Hossein Naghdi, the NCR representative in Italy . She demanded that the regime's leaders be brought before a court of law.
