By Amir Taghati
The United States is in the middle of a maximum pressure campaign on Iran. The Trump administration has paid a lot of attention to Iran over the past year and it has put in place a number of strategies to roll back Iran’s influence in the Middle East and to curb its belligerent behaviour.

The Iranian regime has been involved in the Syrian civil since the very start. Its role there has been nothing but malign and disruptive and it has basically guaranteed that Syrian President Bashar al Assad has more time as the country’s leader. It is almost certain that the Syrian regime and Assad would have fallen a long time ago had Iran not got involved.

Terrorism in the Middle East is a pressing problem, from the Houthis in Yemen to Hezbollah in Lebanon to ISIS in Iraq and Syria. There is no escaping this issue and it must certainly be addressed, but perhaps the best way to do this is not through the confrontation of the individual groups, although that must certainly still happen. In fact, it may be best to go straight to the source: the Iranian Regime.

The foreign ministers of the European Union endorsed, on Monday, a French government decision to sanction Iranian nationals accused of a bomb plot near Paris, which could lead to the EU-wide enforcement of the measures, according to diplomats.
The ministers said that technical work on freezing the EU assets of two Iranians and Iran's intelligence service, who stand accused of arranging the failed bomb attack on the rally of an exiled Iranian opposition group, could now start.
Statement on Iran
We are very worried about the deteriorating situation of human rights and repression of women in Iran. The country has maintained the highest number of executions in the world per capita during the presidency of the so-called “moderate” Hassan Rouhani. According to Amnesty International’s Global Report on the Death Penalty, more than half of all recorded executions in 2017 took place in Iran. It is also the leading executioner of underage offenders.
