NCRI - The Italian Committee of Parliamentarians and Citizens for Free Iran in a statement welcomed the new U.S. policy towards the Iranian regime and the inclusion of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) in the terrorist list.
The committee called for support for the struggle of Iranian people and Resistance to establish freedom and democracy in Iran.
The Italian Committee of Parliamentarians and Citizens for Free Iran in its statement called on the European Union to place the IRGC in the EU’s terrorist list and emphasized: “We should also support the will of Iranian people and Resistance; the international community should stand with the Iranian Resistance.”
“The disapproval of the nuclear deal by the new U.S. administration indicates the necessity of ending the policy of appeasement with the regime, a policy that has taken great risks to global security and was adopted by the previous U.S. administrations and today, it is also followed by some Western governments,” the statement said.
The Italian Committee of Parliamentarians and Citizens for Free Iran, while pointing out the deficiencies in the nuclear agreement, emphasizes the need for unconditional inspections of the regime's sites, and then adds:
“The human rights situation in Iran, especially in the context of widespread and arbitrary use of the death penalty, the violent crackdown on any opposition and discrimination against women and minorities, has not improved at all. In this context, particularly the United States’ placing the Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) in the list of terrorist organizations should be welcomed. The IRGC while controlling most economic resources of the country, use them for terrorist activities and repression. This decision should also be adopted by the European Union and they should use sanctions to prevent the Iranian regime entering the global banking system.”
