Rajavi warns that mullahs may use U.S. State Department's statement to launch further terrorist attacks

In a letter to the UN Secretary General, Mr. Kofi Annan, and members of the UN Security Council, Mr. Massoud Rajavi, President of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, warned that the clerical regime in Iran may use the U.S. State Department's statement against the Iranian Resistance to launch further terrorist attacks or acts of aggression.

Mr. Rajavi stressed that the State Department's condemnation of the Mojahedin's attack on the mullahs' "Islamic Revolutionary Prosecutor's Office" and the Department's offer of condolences to executioners and torturers amounted to a clear ransom being paid to the leaders of "the most active state sponsor of terrorism" in the contemporary world. The Tehran regime has been condemned on 42 occasions by different UN bodies for its human rights violations and export of terrorism.

Mr. Rajavi reiterated that no civilian and no ordinary citizen was in any way hurt in the Mojahedin operations. He said the U.S. State Department's recent statement would be interpreted by the ruling mullahs as a green light for launching further missile attacks and air raids on the Iranian Resistance's centers and also more terrorist assaults on Iranian dissidents outside the country. In the same vein, in November 1994, a week after the State Department published a report against the Mojahedin, the Iranian rulers, having received the green light from the U.S., violated Security Council Resolution 598, international law and the UN Charter and hit a basecamp of the National Liberation Army within Iraqi territory with three Scud-B missiles.

Mr. Rajavi urged the Secretary General and the Security Council to take immediate steps to prevent the clerical regime from attempting a new military or terrorist aggression or attack. He added: It is time to condemn vehemently the mullahs' religious, terrorist dictatorship and impose trade and diplomatic sanctions on it, so that this outlaw regime will no longer be able to exploit the silence and inaction of the international community to perpetuate human rights violations and export of terrorism.
