Analysis by PMOI/MEK
Jan. 17, 2019 - Alaeddin Borujerdi, a senior member of Majlis (parliament), is the latest in a series of high-profile Iranian regime officials to warn about the upcoming conference in Warsaw, Poland, in which the U.S. will host officials from several countries to discuss the destructive role of the Iranian regime in the Middle East. Like his peers, Borujerdi is revealing his true fears.
“[PMOI/MEK] is part of the American puzzle against the Islamic Republic in the Warsaw security conference. Recently, we’ve seen European countries take measures against the Islamic Republic under pressure from the U.S.,” said Borujerdi, who previously served as the Chairman of the Foreign Policy and National Security of the parliament and is a close confidant to Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei.
Among the measures Borujerdi warns against is the relocation of members of PMOI/MEK from Iraq to Albania and recent measures by European countries to counter the terrorist activities of the Iranian regime in their countries.
Last week, the EU slapped fresh sanctions on the Intelligence Ministry of the Iranian regime and two of its members for the role they’ve played in creating insecurity in Europe and engaging in terrorist plots against PMOI/MEK members and Iranian dissidents. In the past year, at least three European countries, France, Denmark and Netherlands, have vocally expressed concern over the intensifying terrorist and spying activities of the Iranian regime on their soil. For Iranian authorities, who have traditionally looked toward Europe for backing in their foreign affairs disputes with the U.S., the slow and steady turn of events have not been pleasant.
Borujerdi recommended that the regime reacts to the country that has accepted hosting the “anti-Iranian” conference and that Iranian authorities reduce diplomatic relations so the Polish “understand that we will not remain indifferent to the plotting of the Americans.”
On January 11, American and Polish authorities issued a joint statement in which they declared the assembly of a global conference in Warsaw to promote peace and security in the Middle East by focusing on countering the foreign meddling of the Iranian regime.
In this regard, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the meeting would “focus on Middle East stability and peace and freedom and security here in this region, and that includes an important element of making sure that Iran is not a destabilizing influence.”
The declaration of the conference drew frantic reactions from regime officials. Iranian regime Foreign Minister Javad Zarif called the conference and “anti-Iran circus” and threatened to take measure against Poland.
Other Iranian officials have made remarks that is proving that what the Zarif is calling a circus is in fact much more troubling to Tehran than its officials pretend, especially as protests continue to rage across different cities in the country.
