French mayors have met in Paris to condemn religious extremism and give their support to the Iranian Resistance.
The meeting attended by Iranian Resistance leader Maryam Rajavi on November 25 brought together mayors from across France to show their commitment to the struggle for freedom and democracy in Iran.
Jean-François Legaret, mayor of Paris's 1st Arrondissment, said: "We, the mayors of France, have solidarity with Maryam Rajavi and the cause of democracy in Iran. We have a duty to speak out against the threat of Islamic fundamentalism and against the religious dictatorship in Iran seeking to acquire nuclear weapons.
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran said on Saturday (November 8, 2014) that the Iranian regime continues their pursuit of nuclear weapons which they consider the guarantor of their survival.
Speaking at a conference at the NCRI’s headquarters in Auvers-sur-Oise, a suburb of Paris, Mrs. Rajavi said: “The mullahs still insist on manufacturing the nuclear bomb. They are not confident about their future and seek the bomb as the guarantor of their survival.”
NCRI – An effective U.S. strategy for fighting extremists in the Middle East must include a coalition of moderate forces in the region including those fighting against ruling mullahs in Iran, said Alireza Jafarzadeh of the National Council of Resistance of Iran on Bloomberg TV’s Street Smart on Thursday.
