Eduard Kukan MEP: Iran regime’s execution rate is rising

NCRI – Eduard Kukan, former Foreign Minister of Slovakia, has spoken out against the mullahs’ regime in Iran.

Mr. Kukan, who is also a Member of the European Parliament from Slovakia, expressed his anger at the Iranian regime’s abuse of human rights and the rate of executions.

He cited the fact that executions during the “so-called moderate” regime are growing; almost 1,000 people (including women and children) were executed in 2015 alone.

He was one of the 270 MEPs who signed a letter insisting that the EU condition their negotiations with Iran on improvements to the dire human rights situation.

He said: “[The letter] is a reflection of the views of the EU.”

He said: “I also fully support Maryam Rajavi’s plan for the future of Iran and, like many colleagues, I also am very critical of the policies of the European Union towards Iran.”

He talked about the grand gathering in Paris on July 9, for all members and supporters of the Iranian resistance. The “Free Iran” gathering will be attended by world leaders, policy makers, journalists and religious leaders. He encourages as many civilians as possible to attend.

He said: “It will really show in a very big and very concrete way that this is a real movement which enjoys the support of many people and it should be taken as an important international force which is there and which will influence the real policies of the EU.”

Eduard Kukan served as Minister of Foreign Affairs of Slovakia from 1998 to 2006.
