MEPs ‘extremely worried by the situation in Iran’


NCRI – Slovak Member of the European Parliament, Anna Zaborska, declared that, after three years of the supposedly ‘moderate’ President, Hassan Rouhani, MEPs are ‘extremely worried by the situation in Iran’.

Citing the oppressive treatment of women, children and religious minorities, as well as the increase in executions, Ms Zaborska said that more than 270 MEPs, from all political persuasions, had demanded that the EU conditions its relationship with the regime on respect for human rights.

Speaking of Iranian Resistance President-elect Maryam Rajavi, whom she knew well, Ms Zaborska said Mrs Rajavi had ‘sacrificed herself for her country’. The Iranian people had shown great courage, and Ms Zaborska was sure the mass rally planned in Paris this week would further a solution for Iran.

The Free Iran rally will be held on July 9 in Paris. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) will be joined by tens of thousands of well-wishers as well as decision-makers from across the globe.
