The night before, Iranians residing in Torino also held a picket line and threw egss at the motorcade carrying Kharrazi and his delegation. They showed that the Iranian people vehemently condemn any form of diplomatic and economic exchange with the mullahs' anti-human regime.
Ms. Mitra Baqeri, the representative of the National Council of Resistance of Iran in Italy said: The reaction in Torino and Rome, and before then in New York, Ottawa, Los Angeles, Paris and Stockholm by Iranains to visits by the Iranian regime's officials show that the mullahs ruling Iran lack any legitimacy among the people of Iran.
Establishing diplomatic and economic relations with a regime which has so far executed 120,000 persons, hangs more of its opponents everyday, or assassinates them at home or abroad, is not an honor for anyone and will only cast a shadow on future relations between the Iranian people and those countries.
The NCR's representative called on Italian government officials not to expand their relations with Tehran and not grant loans and economic concessions to this religious, terrorist dictatorship. She emphasized: After the overthrow of the mullahs' regime, the Iranian people and Resistance will not commit themselves to any contracts signed by this regime which is in the final stage of its rule.
