NCRI - During the recent widespread anti-regime protests in Iran, Ayatollah Hashemi Shahroudi was receiving medical treatment in Germany and, in response, human rights activists and former political prisoners launched a campaign demanding his arrest for crimes against humanity, including during the Kooye Daneshgah confrontation.
Ahead of a visit to Tehran on Monday, France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Iran needed to address international concerns over its ballistic missile program or it risked new sanctions.

NCRI - To steer clear of violations of US sanctions, energy and oil companies refused to refuel the airplane that the Foreign Minister of Iranian regime was using. The incident almost impeded Javad Zarif from attending the Munich Security Conference earlier this month.
NCRI - Iran has been meddling in the internal affairs of numerous nations across the Middle East in its bid for regional hegemony. It has also been fuelling conflicts and wars, such as those in Syria and Yemen, and it has been funding terrorist groups and militias for years. It is at the centre of most conflicts in the region and its belligerence is increasing, along with its desperation.
