Mrs. Rajavi’s letter followed a Monday night meeting of the foreign ministers of the P5 and on the eve of an extraordinary session of the IAEA Board of Governors. Mrs. Rajavi called for urgent practical measures by the Security Council against the regime’s nuclear activities.
Mrs. Rajavi wrote that by appointing Ahmadinejad to the presidency, the Iranian regime had made a strategic choice to secure the regime’s survival by obtaining nuclear weapons, devouring Iraq and showing enmity toward peace in the region. "The Iranian people and Resistance were unfortunately perceived as pawns in a bid by Western countries to satisfy the mullahs", she wrote, adding, "Today, however, the expectation of reform has turned out to be an illusion. The mullahs are on the verge of having the bomb."
"Today the time has come for a new policy on the Iranian people and Resistance and support for democratic change in Iran. Only through democratic change in Iran can this catastrophe be averted. And this change can only be realized by the Iranian people and the Resistance," the Iranian Resistance’s President-elect emphasized.
Mrs. Rajavi added that the international community was faced with a serious choice: to continue accommodating the mullahs which will lead to inevitable war or to show firmness and removing the obstacles for change in Iran.
The President-elect of the Iranian Resistance stressed that eighteen years of secrecy, three-plus years of negotiations and maneuvering had seriously imperiled the security of the world. She called for the imposition of oil, arms, technological and diplomatic sanctions against the regime, investigation of the atrocities of the Iranian regime and its leaders against the Iranian people and its terrorist crimes outside Iran in an international tribunal, and the removal of the unjust terror tag from the People’s Mojahedin of Iran and extending support to the National Council of Resistance of Iran as the Iranian people’s legitimate resistance.
