Iran September 28, 2019According to most western media outlets, at the United Nations General Assembly this year, conditions were ripe for a meeting and negotiations between U.S. President Donald Trump and Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani, especially following a last-minute proposal placed on the table by France.

“There is a lot of talk and rumor on Rouhani’s visit to New York. There have been images publicized, and lines quoting him and the Foreign Minister that are collectively not positive. There should be an explanation provided regarding these remarks and the resulting reactions,” said Zahra Zohrevand, an international affairs expert working for the regime in Iran.

Even the most pro-appeasement figures in the West are showing signs of losing all their hopes.

The European countries were hoping for a meeting between the presidents of the United States and Iran in order to decrease tensions in the Middle East, said European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini. However, Tehran conditioned this meeting on Washington lifting all sanctions and returning to the 2015 nuclear deal, she added, using the commonly known acronym for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Even Iran’s own state media, such as the Tasnim news agency, affiliated to the terrorist-designated Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Quds Force, are also describing Rouhani’s New York visit as a complete failure.

“Laughing your heart out with an individual who accuses Iran in order to have more sanctions imposed, and cooperates with Trump in imposing his maximum pressure, means nothing other than collaborating in an initiative humiliating [the Iranian regime],” the post reads in part.

The humiliating failure of Rouhani’s visit reflects more than ever before a weak and incapable mullahs’ regime in its entirety. This weakness even deprived Rouhani of the ability to accept France's $15 billion bailout package plan in return for returning to the JCPOA framework and rolling back all the regime’s nuclear deal violations.

Freedom-loving Iranians and supporters of the Iranian opposition group People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) held a massive “No to Rouhani” rally outside of the United Nations in New York on Tuesday and for a second day on Wednesday. This demonstration coincided with Rouhani’s speech at the UN General Assembly as a reminder to the world that the sole solution is regime change in Iran by the Iranian people and their organized resistance movement.

Iranian Americans, supporters of the PMOI/MEK, gathered in New York on Tuesday for a major protest rally to voice their opposition to the presence of Iranian regime President Hassan Rouhani. The demonstrators condemned the criminal terrorist mullahs in Iran, emphasizing this regime does not represent the Iranian people and Tehran’s seat in the UN belongs to the true representative of the Iranian people, being the opposition coalition National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) led by Maryam Rajavi as President.

These rallies were organized by the Organization of Iranian American Communities, supporters of the PMOI/MEK, with branches in 40 states across the United States.



The protesters were heard chanting, “Terrorist Rouhani out of UN,” emphasizing the regime in Tehran has proven what the Iranian opposition and has been warning about for years. Tehran’s mullahs lead the single most dangerous regime across the globe and assuming this regime has any moderates is completely naïve. Any form of appeasement vis-à-vis the mullahs’ regime in Iran is condemned and more countries should join the maximum pressure campaign specifically targeting and isolating the mullahs’ regime.

The people of Iran, through their continuous protests, strikes and nationwide uprising have been striving for regime change. This regime must be overthrown in its entirety, the demonstrators highlighted.

The systematic economic corruption brought about by the mullahs’ regime is beyond repair, the demonstrators said. The desire for change in Iran is expanding as we speak. The terrorist mullahs cannot and will not reform, and change to a free Iran is possible and at hand, the event organizers underscored.

Rudy Giuliani, the lawyer of U.S. President Donald Trump and former mayor of New York, was the first speaker at this rally, saying this regime will be overthrown.

The NCRI can take over and run Iran like no other regime change models, Mr. Giuliani said. Under leadership of Madame Rajavi, Giuliani remarked, the Iranian opposition coalition can transition Iran from a regime of terror to a regime of democracy and freedom. The NCRI will end capital punishment and restore respect for women’s rights, he added.



Senator Joseph Lieberman, former U.S. vice presidential nominee, also addressed the rally. “The [Iranian] regime’s aggressions still continues—our policies won’t change the behavior. It’s regime change that can solve the Middle East bloodshed. The NCRI’s ten-point plan is a guarantee for a prosperous, democratic and nuclear free Iran. The NCRI has the broadest support in the U.S. and around the world,” he said.



Mrs. Rajavi sent a message to the New York demonstration praising the Iranian American community in their ongoing efforts of being the voice of the Iranian people.

“Your gathering in New York is a resounding ‘No!’ to the policy of appeasement, to the policy of buying chances for a moribund regime, and to the policy of inaction toward a regime that preserves its power through warmongering, terrorism and suppression,” Mrs. Rajavi said.



“Your gathering says ‘No’ to the continuation of the rule of a bunch of occupiers and criminals in Iran. And, it says ‘Yes’ to the overthrow of this regime by the people of Iran and the Iranian Resistance. You are the voice of protest and resistance by the Iranian people, a movement whose latest signs were evident in recent days through the brave workers at the HEPCO factory marching in the streets of Arak,” the NCRI President added in reference to escalating protests across Iran.

“And you are the voice of the Resistance Units and Councils of Resistance who through their courageous activities across Iran have kept the flames of uprising and protests alive,” Mrs. Rajavi highlighted, in reference to the vast PMOI/MEK network inside Iran.

“Following the clerical regime’s recent attack from inside Iran against Saudi oil facilities, the real question facing the world is no longer who conducted the attack, but the need to advance a policy of decisiveness and firmness against this regime… The ruling regime is surrounded by a disenchanted population who are firmly convinced that their liberation will not be possible without the mullahs’ overthrow. The days of the religious fascism are numbered,” she concluded.

The international community needs to realize that the only method to avoid further carnage in and outside Iran is an end to the mullahs’ regime in its entirety.

PMOI/MEK supporters in the U.S. have been holding annual rallies during each year’s UN General Assembly to voice their opposition to the mullahs’ regime and solidarity with the PMOI/MEK’s struggle to bring about regime change in Iran and to establish freedom and democracy for the Iranian people.
