NCRI - The U.S. Congressional Record has published the text of the speech by Iranian opposition leader Mrs. Maryam Rajavi at the annual Iran Freedom rally held in Paris on June 13.

Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican member of the House of Representatives from North Carolina who also addressed the Iran Freedom rally in person, submitted the text of Mrs. Maryam Rajavi's remarks to the US Congress on Thursday.

"The velayat-e faqih regime has reached the end of the line," Mrs. Maryam Rajavi said. "The only way to end the violations of human rights in Iran, the nuclear impasse, the crises in the region, and the confrontation with ISIS and terrorism, is to topple the Caliph of regression and terrorism in Iran."

Iran opposition spokesman tells Sky News: Trusting mullahs is foolhardy

 Iranian opposition spokesperson Shahin Gobadi speaking on Sky News

NCRI – The Obama administration has provided unwarranted concessions in the nuclear negotiations with the clerical regime, Iranian opposition spokesperson Shahin Gobadi has told Sky News.

In a live interview on Wednesday, Shahin Gobadi of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) said: “One should have no illusions about where we are today. The Iranian regime has been striving to obtain nuclear weapons for almost the past three decades. This program has all the markings and ingredients of a weapons program, and there is no other logical reason for the Iranian regime to be so insistent on continuing this program, because according to the regime’s own assessments, which we have obtained, this does not make any sense economically.”

Rep. Ed Royce: Obama giving Iran regime dangerous concessions

Rep. Ed Royce

The Obama administration is at risk of offering "dangerous concessions" to the Iranian regime in an effort to strike a nuclear deal, Rep. Ed Royce, chairman of the US House Foreign Affairs Committee, has said.

"In Vienna, the Obama administration and its Iranian negotiating counterparts are spreading optimistic messages about their imminent deal and its promise to block Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb," Mr. Royce wrote in the Orange County Register on Thursday. "The most soothing message came in a YouTube video starring Iran’s chief negotiator, Javad Zarif. Introduced by gentle music, the urbane Zarif earnestly and in perfect English tells viewers that 'we have never been closer to a lasting outcome.'"

 British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond

British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Friday major powers and the Iranian regime were making slow progress in nuclear talks in Vienna, but that ministers would reconvene on Saturday to try and overcome the final hurdles.

"We are making progress, it's painfully slow," Hammond told reporters before leaving Vienna. "There are still some issues that have to be resolved. I'm confident our officials working with the Iranians over the next 12 hours will clear some more of the text."

"Ministers will regroup tomorrow to see whether we can get over the remaining hurdles," he added.

IRAN: Top adviser to Khamenei says 'redlines' should be respected in nuclear talks

The top adviser to the Iranian regime's supreme leader said on Friday that Tehran's "redlines" should be respected in nuclear talks with major powers aimed at curbing the regime's nuclear program.

"A deal can be reached only if (our) redlines are respected ... (U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry's) comments are part of America's psychological warfare against Iran," said Ali Akbar Velayati, top adviser to the mullahs' Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei. His comments were published by the state-run news agency Tasnim.
