July 14, 2018 - The regime in Iran is facing a variety of pressures and a recent surge has Tehran’s senior officials extremely concerned.
NATO leaders held a summit recently in Brussels with US President Donald Trump attending and evaluating the Iranian regime’s terror threats. NATO issued a statement after its first summit day expressing grave concerns over the Iranian regime’s ballistic missile program and regional meddling.
Politico also issued a piece recently saying, “The U.S. is raising pressure on European allies to isolate Iran in the wake of a foiled terrorist attack in France last month that Washington believes targeted American citizens, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.”
To further the US drive, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with his French, German and British counterpart on the sidelines of the NATO Summit. One of his main objectives were to increase pressure on the Iranian regime.
Prior to that, Pompeo in the United Arab Emirates said Washington is witnessing Iran’s malign behavior in Europe and went on to accuse Tehran of plotting terror attacks in Europe.
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Quds Force chief Qassem Suleimani is causing mayhem in the region and we will raise the price for him in this regard, Pompeo added.
The top US diplomat went on to add that Washington emphasizes on ending the Iranian regime’s influence in Syria. A US State Department delegation had travelled to Saudi Arabi to specifically coordinate an escalation of pressure against Tehran’s mullahs.
In line, a US State Dept. official accompanying the delegation in this visit said the Iranian regime’s embassies are a cover for terror-related measures.
Proving this argument, a Vienna-based Iranian regime’s diplomat has recently been arrested in Germany for his role in plotting a bomb attack targeting a recent Iranian opposition convention in Paris where a large number of American and other international dignitaries were attending, including Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former US House Speaker Newt Gingrich, two individuals very close to Trump.
German prosecutors have officially accused the Iranian regime diplomat, Assadollah Assadi, of conspiracy for murder.
France is saying another suspect in this bomb plot will be extradited to Belgium.
Adding insult to all these injures, an Iran-linked group in Bahrain has been blacklisted by the United States.
Moreover, Argentina is calling on Russia to arrest Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Iranian regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and former foreign minister, during his visit to Moscow to meeting with senior Russian officials.
