Cross party UK parliamentary delegation meets Iran’s opposition leader
Statement by Rt. Hon. David Jones MP, former Secretary of State for Wales, 12 February 2016:
More than 200 cross-Party MPs and Peers today called on the UK government to adopt a firm policy towards Iran and make any improvement in bilateral relations conditioned on an end to human rights abuses and regional meddling. The announcement was unveiled at a meeting attended by a delegation of eight MPs and one member of the House of Lords with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance, north of Paris at the headquarters of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
Iranian exiles took part in a rally in London’s Parliament Square and St James' Square on Thursday, February 4, to protest against the presence of an the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister at the Supporting Syria and the Region conference.
Iranians, taking part in a rally organized by National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), stressed that Iran has been the main supporter of Syrian dictator, Bashar Assad and has facilitated the massacre of the Syrian people.
Jean-François Legaret, mayor of the 1st district of Paris, addressed a demonstration by thousands of Iranians and human rights activists against the presence of the Iranian regime’s president, Hassan Rouhani, in the French capital.
The protesters urged France and other EU governments to make their relations with the Iranian regime contingent upon an improvement of human rights in Iran and an end to the support of the mullahs for the massacre of the Syrian people by Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
“We will not be deceived by Hassan Rouhani’s smiles. If he was a true moderate, on his very first day of presidency he would have protested against the executions that are happening in Iran; he would have released the political prisoners; he would have stopped acid attacks on women and many other brutal punishments,” Dr. Alejo Vidal-Quadras, President of International Committee In Search of Justice declared in his speech at Thursday’s rally by thousands of Iranians in Paris simaltanous with Hassan Rouhani’s visit to France.
Hassan Rouhani is one of the most senior officials responsible for violations of human rights in Iran and massacre in the region

Thursday at noon, in a large demonstration in Paris (Place Denfert-Rochereau) protestors called on the French officials to chastise Rouhani for the dire situation of human rights in Iran, the policy of export of terrorism and fundamentalism, and the destructive conflicts in the region, especially for buttressing the criminal President of Syria Bashar al-Assad.

“The single greatest strategic challenge the United States faces in 2016 remains the Islamic Republic of Iran.” These are the words of General Hugh Shelton, a former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the US military, in an article published in The Washington Times this week.
The article demonstrates the extent to which Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has failed to live up to his self-proclaimed “moderate” tag, and has in fact inflicted an increasing number of human rights violations upon the people of Iran. According to Shelton, “the United States has shown leniency in the face of belligerence and used half-measures to confront adversaries who define extremism in both word and deed.”
