UN General Assembly Adopts Resolution Against Human Rights Abuses in Iran

The United Nations General Assembly adopted its 64th resolution on Tuesday, December 19, against violations of human right in Iran.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, welcomed the resolution and said, “In the case of a regime which has totally ignored dozens of UN resolutions against the unabated violations of human rights in Iran and its highest officials publicly boast of massacring political prisoners, the international community must adopt binding measures to stop the regime’s crimes. All diplomatic and commercial relations with the mullahs’ theocratic regime directly serve the interests of Khamenei’s Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and must be conditioned on an end to torture and executions in Iran and a halt to the regime’s destructive meddling in the region. In the absence of a firm policy, flagrant violations of human rights in Iran and export of terrorism, fundamentalism and belligerence to the region and the world will continue.”

Overthrowing Tehran's Regime Is Imperative to Resolve Middle East Crisis

While displaying the remnants of some of the ballistic missiles and weapons that the mullahs regime provided to their mercenaries in Yemen, the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said on Thursday, December 14, 2017 that the Iranian regime is illegally providing the Houthi militants in Yemen with dangerous weapons, and evidence shows this regime “sows conflict and extremism in direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions.” She added, “Aid from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard to dangerous militias and terror groups is increasing. Its ballistic missiles and advanced weapons are turning up in warzones across the region. It’s hard to find a conflict or a terrorist group in the Middle East that does not have Iran’s fingerprints all over it.”

In an address to Majlis (the mullahs’ parliament) on Sunday, December 10, Iran regime’s president praised the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and its mercenary militias in countries in the region and ironically described them as “an element of security” in the region.

God willing in future, they will also secure Yemen. They are endeavoring full force to make the region secure… Today is the day when we must get actively engaged in the region, economically, culturally, and politically."
