Albania, June 29, 2019 - An international delegation visited Ashraf 3, home to members of the Iranian opposition People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) in Albania, and took part in an international conference with Iranian opposition President Maryam Rajavi, head of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI).
The conference, titled “Mullahs’ Regime, Source of War and Instability in The Region; Iranian Resistance, Messenger of Peace and Freedom,” hosted a number of European parliamentarians alongside political, legal and religious dignitaries from across Europe and Australia.
The speakers emphasized the necessity to adopt a firm policy in the face of the Iranian regime’s warmongering and terrorism and hold the mullahs accountable for their human rights violations and crimes against the Iranian people.
The attendees also voiced their solidarity with the Iranian people’s uprising and Resistance and emphasized on their support for the NCRI as the democratic alternative for Iran and Mrs. Rajavi’s ten-point plan for a free and a democratic Iran.

The dignitaries participating in the conference included Laurence Fehlmann-Rielle, Jean-Charles Rielle, Eric Voruz, Nils de Dardel, Eric Sottas and Christiane Perregaux from Switzerland; former MEP Paolo Casaca from Portugal, Malcolm Fowler from the United Kingdom, Otto Bernhardt from Germany, Dr. Phil Glendenning from Australia; and Amar Haddou, Nathalie Pereira-Fordelone and Bishop Jacques Gaillot from France.
Mrs. Rajavi delivered a speech recounting recent developments in regards to Iran and the tensions across the Middle East.

“The mullahs’ intransigent posture in international relations is just a hollow show of force. It would be an absolute mistake to think that the regime is engaging in such antics from a position of strength, as its lobbyists claim,” she said.
“The policy of appeasement is the flip side of the coin of hostility towards the Iranian Resistance. For four decades, this policy has enabled the mullahs to commit countless crimes and transgressions with impunity. It has also emboldened them to take further actions,” Mrs. Rajavi continued.
“Now, have these attacks made it clear to proponents of appeasement that the Iranian regime is the very source of conflict in the Middle East? Or this time, do they want to give the mullahs a peace prize?” the Iranian opposition President continued.
“An assortment of regime apologists, lobbyists, operatives and agents, who for years had accused the Iranian Resistance and their freedom-loving and humanitarian supporters of being warmongers. They claimed that those advocating for human rights and freedom in Iran seek to lure the U.S. to wage war. What a disgraceful lie! Of course, after 40 years, the people of Iran are well aware that the enemy is not on the other side of distant oceans; the ruling mullahs are the enemy, who stand face-to-face against the Iranian people,” Mrs. Rajavi concluded.
