Maryam Rajavi greeted by French local officials on Iranian New Year

Maryam Rajavi greeted by French local officials on Iranian New YearNCRI – Mayors and city council officials of Val d’Oise province, north of Paris, met with Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, President-elect of the Iranian Resistance at her residence in Auvers-sur-Oise to congratulate her on the occasion of the Iranian New Year.

Dominique Lefevre, mayor of the provincial capital Cergy and also the chairman of the Cergy’s City Council, Mr. Jean-Pierre Bequet, mayor of Auvers-sur-Oise, Jean-Pierre Muller, and Philippe Legrand, mayors of two other cities were among the guests at the reception.

In their New Year’s messages, they expressed solidarity with the Iranian resistance, specially the residents of Camp Ashraf, home to thousands of PMOI members in Iraq.
 
Mrs. Rajavi welcomed the representatives of the French people and said: "The term ‘Freedom’ has a special place in the Iranian culture. This is what our resistance has fought and stood for. We are anxious to take ‘freedom’ to our people."

Mrs. Rajavi added: "We are starting the New Year at a time when the nature of the non-transparent, tyrannical dictatorship ruling Iran has been uncovered to almost everyone and its nuclear dossier has been referred to the UN Security Council – of course after a very long delay. But I have to stress that this is just the beginning and only the first step. We have no time to lose."

"Today the policy of appeasement has proven to be futile and the appropriate policy towards Iran is neither foreign military intervention nor appeasement. This crisis has an Iranian solution to it which is a democratic change through people of Iranian and their resistance," concluded the President-elect.
