In an online Q&A session on Monday, Mohammad Mohaddessin, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), addressed the current nuclear stalemate in Vienna and the broader nuclear negotiations between the Iranian regime and the world powers.
“It is now obvious to everyone that the [June 30] deadline will be missed. But what shocked the other negotiators during this round of talks was the fact that the Iranian regime rejected many of the parameters it had agreed to in Lausanne on April 2”, Mr Mohaddessin said.
The only 'long term' solution to end the Iranian regime's nuclear proliferation and fundamentalist meddling in the region is a 'regime change' in Tehran, says Ken Blackwell, a former Cincinnati mayor and United States ambassador to the UN human rights commission.
"Secretly, the mullahs in Tehran began a nuclear program, ostensibly to provide power to heat and light homes, business, and industries. But, thanks to the National Council of Resistance of Iran, the coalition of Iranian opposition movement and its key component, the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (Mek) which has kept a wary eye on the parts of the program that Tehran didn’t want the world to know about, it became known that the nuclear program had a more nefarious goal – development of a nuclear weapon with which it could threaten all its neighbors, including Israel," Amb. Blackwell wrote on Monday in TownHall.com .
Members of the United Kingdom’s Houses of Parliament on Monday urged the P5+1 countries that are negotiating an agreement with the Iranian regime over its nuclear program to insist that there must be international inspections of Iran's military sites.
“Without unfettered access for IAEA inspectors to Iran's military sites and nuclear scientists, any nuclear agreement between the P5+1 and Tehran would be meaningless,” the British Parliamentary Committee for Iran Freedom (BPCIF) said in a statement on its website.
Western nations have a ‘duty’ to support the Iranian Resistance in its struggle to bring freedom and democracy to Iran, a Vice President of the European Parliament has said, and ‘regime change’ in Iran is needed to stop Iranian meddling in the Middle East and domestic repression inside Iran.
The West must heed a call by some 100,000 supporters of democracy for Iran who took part in the annual Iran Freedom rally in Paris on June 13, Ryszard Czarnecki, an EP Vice from Poland, wrote in the United Press International on Sunday.
NCRI - The Iranian regime on Sunday amputated the hands of two prisoners in the central prison of Mashhad, northeast Iran.
One of the victims, identified only by the initials M. E., was a 26-year-old resident of Mashhad, the state-run daily Khorasan wrote on Monday. The second victim was not identified; the report simply stated that this young man was transferred from Khorasan Jonubi province to the same prison in Mashhad where the sentence was carried out.
State media claimed that the two men had been convicted of theft.
NCRI - A leading finish politician has rallied in support of the call for ‘regime change’ in Iran so that human rights and democracy can take over.
“Today, Iranian people are suffering because there is a cruel dictatorship in Tehran,” Kimmo Sasi told the huge annual Iran Freedom rally in Paris on June 13.
Mr. Sasi also highlighted Iran’s economic crisis.
“The leadership uses the people's money to fulfill wrongful purposes. There is no freedom of expression in the country, young people are executed, and women do not have the appropriate role in Iranian politics.”
Iran tries to wiggle out of nuclear pledges which has made in an interim nuclear agreement with world powers three months ago, Western officials suggested on Sunday, Reuters reported.
"It feels like we haven't advanced on the technical issues and even gone back on some," a Western diplomat said on condition of anonymity.
The Iranian regime uses terror to accomplish its political and ideological objectives and is fomenting instability and conflict throughout the Middle East, US General George Casey, a former commander of the Coalition forces in Iraq, has said.
Speaking in a major gathering of the Iranian Resistance on June 13 in Paris, Gen. Casey highlighted the Iranian regime’s destabilizing role in the region.

The closer we come to the June 30 deadline in the negotiations between the Iranian regime and the P5+1 countries, the more the real intentions of the mullahs in their nuclear projects and the deadlocks they face become clear. In a speech on June 23 to officials of the regime, the mullahs’ Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei strongly rejected "inspection of military facilities and interviews with Iranian scientists." He said: "Contrary to US statements, we do not accept long term restrictions of 10 or 12 years [on Research and Development]." He added: "The economic, financial and banking sanctions, whether set by the Security Council or the US Congress or the US administration, must be lifted the moment an agreement is signed ... the lifting of sanctions must not be conditional upon Iran implementing its obligations."
British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Sunday in Vienna there were still major differences on a proposed nuclear deal between major powers and Iran and there would need to be concessions to reach an agreement.
"There a number of different areas where we still have major differences of interpretation in detailing what was agreed in (the) Lausanne (framework agreement)," Hammond told reporters on arrival in Vienna. He was referring to a framework deal agreed on April 2.
