Mrs. Rajavi wished the looming of the spring of freedom and national sovereignty, the failure of the mullahs’ belligerence in the region, and the year of emancipation of the defenseless people of Syria from the clutches of the clerical regime ruling Iran. ‘EU Reporter’ correspondent stated in an article which continues as follows:
