Iran, August 23, 2019–Iranian regime Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s visits to Scandinavian countries, especially in Sweden and Norway, were the target of numerous protest rallies by a large number of Iranian exiles condemning his trips. Swedish media covered these rallies, portraying the uproar resulting from Zarif’s latest European tour.

Many protesters were seen holding signs and chanting slogans describing Zarif as a terrorist and strongly criticizing the Nordic countries’ decision to permit such visits by the top diplomat who has been sanctioned by the U.S. State Department. This utter humiliation for the mullahs’ regime came prior to Zarif’s Friday visit to Paris for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Despite his smiles in the face of foreign media, Zarif once again unveiled the true face of the mullahs’ regime in remarks made to Press TV, the regime's English broadcasting company.

In a statement, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), revealed how Zarif's death threats against Iranians who condemn the mullahs’ regime reveal his own position on his regime's crimes:


Zarif: If regime agents capture dissidents, they will eat them alive and not let them live for a minute

Javad Zarif, the Foreign Minister of the religious dictatorship ruling Iran, threatened Iranian protesters in Stockholm to death, brazenly boasting that the regime’s agents and operatives would not let them live for a minute and eat them alive.

In an interview with the state-run Press TV on August 21, he railed at Iranian protesters demanding his expulsion from Sweden. “Ask any of those individuals standing outside to attend any meetings with Iranians (meaning the regime’s Revolutionary Guards and agents) and then see whether they would survive. They would not stay alive for a minute…. They cannot even stay in Iraq because the people of Iraq (meaning the regime’s proxies in that country) will eat them alive.”

As such, Zarif reveals his own murderous nature and that of the mullahs’ medieval regime, which has executed 120,000 dissidents on political charges in the past four decades.

When the mullahs’ Foreign Minister threatens Iranian protesters to death in Stockholm, one can imagine what is happening in the regime’s prisons and torture chambers and how dissidents and political prisoners are being treated.

Zarif’s remarks show once again that receiving the mullahs’ Foreign Minister emboldens the regime to engage in terrorism, murder and warmongering, and clearly runs counter to the interests of the Iranian people, who are seeking the ruling theocracy’s overthrow and the establishment of democracy and popular sovereignty in Iran.
