UK, France, Germany Say Iran Regime Carried out Saudi Oil Attacks
The leaders of the United Kingdom, France and Germany
Britain, France, and Germany joined the United States on Monday in blaming Iran's regime for attacks on key oil facilities in Saudi Arabia.
The fallout from the September 14 attacks is still reverberating as world leaders gather for their annual meeting at the United Nations General Assembly and international experts investigate, at Saudi Arabia's request, what happened and who was responsible.
The leaders of the United Kingdom, France and Germany released a statement saying "there is no other plausible explanation" than that "Iran bears responsibility for this attack."
They pledged to try to ease tensions in the Middle East and urged Iran's regime to "refrain from choosing provocation and escalation."
Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), described the attack on a neighboring country’s oil installations a major step and a new phase in the warmongering aggressions of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, adding that exerting power and decisiveness is the only language the mullahs understand.
Inaction only emboldens this medieval regime, whose primary victims are the Iranian people, she noted, emphasizing that the ultimate solution to rid the world of Iran’s ruling religious fascism as the source of all crises in the region is a change of this illegitimate regime by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement. As such,
- Previous United Nations Security Council resolutions on the mullahs’ nuclear weapons project and the ban on enrichment must be reinstated.
- Eviction of the regime, its Revolutionary Guards and mercenary militias from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan is an urgent imperative.
- The European Union must place Khamenei, his offices, the IRGC and the Ministry of Intelligence on the terrorist watch list.
- The UN Security Council must refer to the clerical regime’s dossier on human rights abuses and atrocities, especially the 1988 massacre of 30,000 political prisoners to an international court.
- The world community must recognize the right of the Iranian people’s Resistance to overthrow the ruling theocracy and attain freedom.
